BG Flex is the next generation of Berkshire Grey’s mobile robotic platform. It includes dynamically controlled fleets of their industrial grade mobile robots that work together to induct, transport, sort, sequence, and fulfill items, cases, and containers of merchandise. The comprehensive AI-based solutions enable faster, higher throughput for eCommerce and retail fulfillment.
The solution is now integrated with high density buffering capabilities and enhanced goods-to-person and goods-to-robot picking stations in a single, modular package. Users can convert any floor into a flexible any-to-any induct-to-discharge sortation system and implement complete fulfillment systems for any environment.
Orchestrating hundreds to thousands of mobile robots working in concert, improving performance over time via AI and machine learning, offering design flexibility, and including simulation capabilities are just some of the ways that this platform reinvents warehouse automation. It also provides open APIs that enable integration with AS/RS, palletizers, and other systems.
Fulfillment operations can realize many benefits, including reducing store truck unload and aisle replenishment times with granular presorting, reducing reshelving and maximizing inventory pick station utilization for eCommerce, automatically integrating resale-ready returned goods with existing inventory, and storing and consolidating partial orders together with filled orders for just-in-time transport loading.
