A fully integrated robotic bin-picking solution, the Movu eligo robot picking arm automatically piece-picks from a single-SKU source bin and places the individual items into multiple mixed-SKU destination bins.
Developed to close the gap between manual and fully automatic pick operation, Movu eligo provides a solution for labor shortage issues, with a robot that can work through inconvenient work hours at a reduced cost but with higher pick accuracy and quality.
Provided with seamless integration as a pick station option for the Movu escala bin shuttle, the eligo combines advanced software with intelligent grippers and machine vision to ensure reliable throughput.
Gently grasping an item from a bin retrieved from the bin shuttle while picking, the robot places the item in a delivery bin. Providing feedback on grasp success, the intelligent grippers ensure an accuracy of 100%.
In addition to a low gripping failure rate, the arm reduces the number of manual touches required for order fulfillment or replenishment and can reach a pick success rate greater than 99%.
Able to achieve 600 picks/h, depending on the specific implementation, the robot can pick goods up to 4 lb. (2 kg) with dimensions of 0.4 in. (10 mm) minimum to a maximum of 12 in. (300 mm). Being completely product agnostic gives it the flexibility to handle changing product mixes.
The robot arm stands 6.5 ft (2 m) high and has an operating radius of 3 ft (1 m). A safety interface makes robotic work cells safe when human interaction is required.
Driven by software, the system leverages machine learning to continuously improve picking. Movu eligo runs on a plug-and-play Application Programming Interface (API) which integrates directly with the Movu escala bin storage solution.
Movu escala interacts with overlying Warehouse Management Software (WMS), Warehouse Control Software (WCS), and Warehouse Execution Software (WES) as needed to mission the piece-picking operations. By planning tasks for the robot such as robot arm movements around the source and destination bin exchange phases, the software optimizes pick cycle times to maximize throughput.
Real-time operational data is presented to staff stationed away from the active systems to resolve exceptions quickly and efficiently. Performance dashboards enable warehouse operations to visualize current and historical data.
Available with 24/7 support, the Movu eligo allows customers to realize the benefits of reliable robotic piece-picking without worrying about integrating all the elements.
