Dexterity (Redwood City, CA) has announced the launch of its Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer. Targeting operations in third-party logistics (3PL), retail and CPG that require case-level labeling, Dexterity’s Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer provides a one-robot workflow to ensure Amazon Routing, SSCC or SKU barcodes are applied to each case in a pallet before shipment.
Leveraging production-fielded technology for palletizing and depalletizing mixed SKU cases, Dexterity’s Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer simplifies labeling requirements with a one-robot layout, reducing the cost of automating what is becoming one of the most time-consuming manual tasks in the warehouse.
The system accurately identifies cases, applies labels according to customer requirements, and replicates pallet patterns. Working with a wide variety of pallet / conveyor input and out combinations, Dexterity’s Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer can be used in inbound, storage and outbound processes.
Dexterity's Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer system achieves a throughput rate of up to 300 cases per hour (CPH), which is approximately 2x faster than the equivalent manual process.
Powered by Dexterity's intelligent AI software platform, the Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer is compatible with messy pallets and random SKU cases, adapting on the fly as single SKU pallets change. The software intelligence of the Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer also ensures it can easily adapt to customers existing workflows, minimizing install times and removing the need for WMS / WES integration.
