With Magazino's technology, individual objects are identified on shelves, localised by 2D and 3D cameras, securely grasped, and placed precisely at their desired destination.
The company - which has a workforce of 50 - was established in January 2014 and soon picked up heavy investment from Siemens. Early stage customers include DHL and Sigloch.
The current warehouse picking systems relied on two models; 'Man to Goods' and 'Goods to Man', but Magazino has developed its own, unique, ‘Pick-by-Robot’ solution which continues the evolution of warehouse robotics.
