Motion Controls Robotics and Plus One Robotics Partner to Bring Robotic Automation to Warehouse Operations and E-Comm Fulfillment
Partnership enables businesses to quickly install robust, scalable robot associates to handle items in the warehouse
Fremont, OH Aug. 25, 2021 – Motion Controls Robotics, Inc. (MCRI) announces its participation in Plus One Robotics’ integrator program. MCRI designs, builds, and integrates premium robotic systems across a range of industries. Through the partnership with Plus One, the leading 3D and AI-powered vision software company, the companies offer customized and fully scalable robotic automation solutions for customers in ecommerce, manufacturing, medical, food and beverage, and shipping industries.
“We’re excited to welcome MCRI to the Plus One family. They have an earned track record in designing and scaling robot installations across industries challenged by the volume surge and labor shortage. Together we can deliver custom designs for a range of applications for fulfillment and distribution centers,” commented Brent Barcey, VP Business Development, Plus One Robotics.
Warehouse operators are gearing up for peak season and face higher shipping volumes driven by increased consumer demand. In building a more resilient, efficient supply chain, warehouse operators can automate tasks like depalletization, order-fulfillment, induction, tote-picking, and parcel sortation to keep pace with demand while mitigating labor shortages.
Advances in computer vision capabilities means that logistics robots can learn to recognize new SKUs, meaning warehouse workers can move to value-add positions such as Crew Chief. A Crew Chief manages multiple robots using Plus Ones’ Yonder software to handle exceptions. The Crew Chief works remotely, seeing on screen exactly what the robot sees. When the robot raises its hand for help by issuing an alert over the cloud, the Crew Chief directs it to the best pick point, getting the robot back to work in seconds.
“By adding the Plus One product line to our existing End of Line Solutions, Fulfillment and Distribution Center automation efforts, along with our Industry 4.0 connectivity packages, it gives us a unique advantage in the industry”, said Scott Lang, President & CEO of MCRI.
