Skypod System changes the rules of intralogistics

The Skypod gives performance equivalent to the best traditional automated order picking systems, while being customizable and agile. What makes all the difference is the ability to change the size of the installation by independently taking into account storage needs and flows, while keeping pace with the growth of the business with the ability to phase in unparalleled investments on the market.

Installation is very fast due to the lack of mechanization in the rack. You can save up to one year’s rent during the installation phase. The Astar software that controls the fleet of robots uses the best of modeling and mathematics to achieve its mission: to assemble orders as quickly as possible with a minimum of resources.

The absence of waves or batches guarantees that the next order prepared is always the most urgent!

How is the Skypod different?

Working conditions

WORKING CONDITIONS

Ergonomic workstations designed to reduce the labor strain of the operator. A goods-to-person solution that eliminates the need for operators to walk 15 km per day, reduces fatigue and decreases the risk of accidents in the warehouse while improving site productivity.

Environment

ENVIRONMENT

Optimum management of your storage space with a densified system that can store up to 10 meters in height. Integrated energy recovery, the Skypod solution has an 80% lower energy footprint compared to automated solutions.

Performance

PERFORMANCE

The goods to person design ensures performance and ergonomics. The Skypod allows last minute prioritization of orders and therefore incomparable responsiveness. The next order processed is always the most urgent! Due to its principle of massive parallelism, the Skypod system has no single point of failure and allows 24/7 operation while ensuring maintenance during production. A simple and fluid system integration, Skypod System connects to your Warehouse Management System (WMS)

Adaptability

ADAPTABILITY

Racks and robots can be added without interrupting or disrupting production. The size of the system can thereforefollow precisely the increase in activity by avoiding anticipating investments. The Skypod solution does not involve any batch or combinatorial effect and therefore adapts to variations in command structure without impact on performance. The system adapts to more or less intense flows; seasonal increases will no longer be a problem. The solution is customized to the needs of each customer, ensuring the best performance.
