Case History

Packing and Multi-Fulfillment Solution
Among the different applications you can develop and manage with YK-Robotics, you can also find Packing. This application can be very variable since box-to-fill sizes and the related material can change frequently. This solution is often used in order to prepare boxes to be shipped, and the flexibility of the solution has to be limitless once we consider e-commerce order fulfillment. With our solution you are now free to configure and manage your fulfillment applications in a very flexible way. End-user can now change box sizes autonomously or directly read a recipe or order form the database while our system will automatically generate the best layout. It can work both with single or multi size boxes.

The solution

YK-Robotics Innovative Solution for Custom Box Creation
With a partner system integrator YK-Robotics has developed the following application
In particular, the end-user is able to manage autonomously:
Efficiency at work
Box and order selection

With YK-Platform selecting boxes to be filled in and related material is simple, automatic and, more important, flexible. Most of the case, our system is directly connected to MES or order management solution in order to let the operator select which order has to executed. Accordingly with box size and disposition and dimensions of the material to be manipulated, our system creates a box layout and the optimized way to fill the box. Our system guides the operator step-by-step. The platform provides visual simulation and time estimations of box filling, as well as number of boxes and weight. 

Extreme Flexibility
Order fulfillment

Order fulfillment solution is a variable process, especially for those companies who has to fulfill e-commerce orders. Creating a very flexible and easy-to-manage solution is a must because nearly every order is different from others. Indeed, the possibility of creating new pattern layout autonomously and in a simple way was key. Our platform allows any operator without any technical background to do so. Variables as box dimensions and material size and disposition can be easily modified while our platform can accordingly adjust and modify the robotic program. Furthermore, the operator can easily refer to a MES recipe in order to create new pallets. In case some changes are in contrast with hardware layout possibilities, YK-Platform will set a notification and will propose the most suitable solution to satisfy the operator request.

Empowering Simplicity
Human interface and custom dashboards

Accordingly with the level of permission, different users can get access to different panels and dashboard in order to operate different tasks. From simply start, stop and reset the machine, to read a recipe from MES, to modify part of the robotic cell program, the HMI can bi configured accordingly and a specific widget can be selected in order to create a custom dashboard.


The results

Revolutionizing Packing and Fulfillment with YK-Robotics’ Customizable Solution
The company has obtained a simple and very flexible tool for packing and order fulfillment, granting itself the possibility to increase production while keeping the required flexibility. Our customer can now create limitless configurations of boxes in a complete and autonomous way.
