S&H Systems will integrate Kindred’s Sort robot technology into its existing material handling and software product portfolio following the establishment of a new partnership between the companies.
The collaboration will harness Kindred’s AutoGrasp technology, a robotics AI platform the identifies items to pick, place and sort to improve accuracy and efficiency for e-commerce fulfilment operations.
“The Sort technology allows our customers to expand their order fulfilment opportunities and keep pace with ever-expanding consumer expectations,” said Jeff Roberts, vice president of systems sales at S&H Systems. “The Sort platform aligns with our modular, flexible and scalable solutions offerings.”
Kindred Sort pick and place robots utilise Core with AutoGrasp, a robotics artificial intelligence platform that identifies items to pick, place and sort them into complete end-customer orders.
Core with AutoGrasp combines AI-powered machine vision, grasping and manipulation algorithms that handle a range of merchandise, including deformable items such as polybags.
According to Kindred, Core with AutoGrasp continually enhances the platform’s capabilities and provides critical business intelligence to inform decisions and increase productivity.
Kindred Sort robots have picked more than 100 million units in production to date.
