ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 23, 2022 (NEWSWIRE GLOBE) – Tompkins Robotics, a leading global provider of autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions, has announced the new tSort3D product to greatly expand the capabilities of the tSort product suite by increasing the number of sort destinations while reducing the footprint of a system. tSort3D allows 6 to 8 times the sort destinations in the same space as other traditional automated sorting solutions, provides for thousands of sort destinations, volumes up to 20,000 an hour, and facilitates a single, very large batch pick. The system is ideal for fulfillment of items for customer e-commerce orders and other fulfillment flows such as store replenishment and reverse logistics.
“TSort3D can handle the widest range of products compared to other automated sorting solutions on the market,” says Tompkins Robotics’ President & CEO Mike Futch. “TSort3D uses a tray as the carrier, while other solutions use a cross belt. Tompkins Robotics’ unique tray design ensures that round, cylindrical, and oddly shaped items are compatible with our system. We can now deliver sorting designs that connect thousands of sorting destinations from any point of induction. ”
Tompkins Robotics is recognized as the leading AMR vendor for sorting technology by Interact Analysis in their 2021 Mobile Robot Market Report. The report, led by Ash Sharma and Jan Zhang, highlights the “robust growth for mobile robots with revenues reaching $ 18 billion in 2025.” Sorting growth has surpassed that of the previous year and is expected to continue accelerating due to changing buying habits, higher returns, and the proliferation of e-commerce.
tSort3D is modular, allows customers to implement quickly, can grow and change as their operational needs evolve, and greatly multiplies the destination density and volume of the sorting process. A tSort3D system is mated with the Tompkins Robotics tSort solution for item sortation loading and routing the items to modules for order consolidation. The system can be deployed in sites as small as the backroom of retail stores and up to very large Distribution and Fulfillment Centers.
“The capabilities of tSort3D far outweigh other dense sorting systems on the market today,” said Futch. “This solution solves a pressing need in distribution and fulfillment operations that no previous automation solution has fully addressed.”
