Dexterity has launched its Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer. Targeting operations in third-party logistics (3PL), retail and consumer packaged goods (CPG) that require case-level labeling, the palletizer provides a one-robot workflow to ensure Amazon Routing, SSCC, or SKU barcodes are applied to each case in a pallet before shipment.
With the adoption of new Fulfillment Network Stock Keeping Unit (FNSKU) and other labeling requirements in the past year, shippers have needed to add another intensively manual process to their workflows. Labeling each case before it is shipped often requires a single team member taking a case off a pallet, adding a label, then reloading the product on a new pallet—all of which add complexity, time, and cost to an already stretched workforce.
Leveraging production-fielded technology for palletizing and depalletizing mixed SKU cases, Dexterity’s Robotic Print and Apply Palletizer simplifies all these operations with a one-robot layout. The system identifies cases, applies labels according to customer requirements, and replicates pallet patterns. Working with a wide variety of pallet / conveyor input and out combinations, it can be used in inbound, storage and outbound processes.
The system achieves a throughput rate of up to 300 cases per hour (CPH). Dexterity, Inc.:
