Leading intralogistics automation supplier, Cimcorp, will present its robotic handling technology at LogiMAT 2019, Stuttgart, February 19-21. This modular solution provides food producers and retailers with instant access to every SKU, ultra-fast handling and total picking accuracy.
“These benefits contribute to freshness for food products. They help maximize shelf life and secure vital competitive advantage for our clients in the fresh produce, bakery and dairy sectors. Brands such as Colruyt, Mercadona and Fazer are all reaping the rewards of investing in our robotic automation,” says Kai Tuomisaari, vice president of sales for Cimcorp.
Faced with the challenges of an increasing variety of store formats, more frequent deliveries and smaller order lines, grocery retailers must minimize the time it takes to get fresh products from the supplier to the store. Controlled by Cimcorp’s warehouse control system (WCS), the robots effortlessly manage the entire material flow from receiving to dispatch. “What is unique about Cimcorp’s solutions is that they combine buffer storage and order picking in one efficient, flexible and scalable operation,” says Tuomisaari.
Easy to install, operate, maintain and expand, Cimcorp’s solutions offer rapid return on investment. By avoiding the need for racking, they ensure maximum space utilization, while computer control ensures full tracking and traceability. Another key advantage for the food industry is the system’s ability to clear the working area completely and automatically for hygienic cleaning.
