Tompkins launches autonomous robotic sorting system


Technology developer Tompkins Robotics has partnered with IT provider Lab Z to launch its t-Sort portable, automated sortation system. The new solution uses a network of automated drones fitted with tilt trays to harmoniously sort parcels and packets into dedicated containers.

Thanks to its modular design, robots, chutes, and induction stations can be added at any time with no interruption or downtime. The standard system sorts a wide variety of goods including packets, parcels, and mailers, and handles loads with a maximum footprint of 30 x 36in.

The system can also be purchased on a seasonal or annual basis, deferring the capital investment and fully utilizing the asset at all times. Compared to a traditional tilt tray system, the capital required is 50% to 70% less. The system has lower risks due to the fact all elements are plug and play, and there is complete redundancy in all elements to include software, servers, and power. A typical installation takes only three to four months to implement.
