Announcing Kinema Pick

Kinema Systems is proud to announce our first product – Kinema Pick – the world’s first self-training, self-calibrating software solution for robotic depalletizing. Kinema Pick enables fully automated depalletization of multi-SKU, single-SKU and random pallets of boxes. Kinema Pick is self-training, i.e. it requires no manual training for the type of boxes to be picked or the workcell that the robot is operating in. Kinema Pick can be easily configured using a browser-based GUI. Kinema Pick is the first in a series of solutions from Kinema Systems for the problem often referred to as the “holy grail” of industrial robotics – random picking. Kinema Pick addresses a critical need in the e-commerce, logistics and distribution industry for robotic picking solutions capable of dealing with unstructured random pallets of boxes.
