As a leading robotic and automation systems integrator, IO Systems render complete turnkey systems for applications such as material handling, assembly, and manufacturing to the clients. They also possess the capability to design, manufacture and integrate robotic & automation systems to suit any requirement. I. O Systems’ robotic pick and place systems allow for accurate placement of totes or cartons into pallets. The robots can be integrated with grippers and vision systems, enabling them to identify the correct carton, pick it up from a moving conveyor and place it into the correct pallet. Besides, mini-load cranes, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are used as an intermediate storage buffer within the production process or as part of a fully automated warehouse system. The system operates by instructing the crane to move a product from a defined in-feed conveyor to a specified rack location. A material flow controller then updates the warehouse management system once the task has been completed.
Robotic systems for automated picking and for ancillary operations such as weighing, labeling, and wrapping are also incorporated into palletizing solutions. IO Systems extends a comprehensive selection of heavy-duty palletizing solutions that not only safeguard products but also ensure efficient, safe, and ergonomic pallet handling from end-of-line processing to storage or onward shipping. Through in-house robotics expertise and relationships with leading packaging technology suppliers, IO Systems can supply and integrate end-of-line systems for automated pallet wrapping and associated processes such as detection, weighing, printing, and labeling.
Automation of today’s distribution centers brings a wide range of benefits from improved workforce productivity, safety and cost-effectiveness, and so on.
