Tompkins Robotics, a provider of portable, scalable autonomous mobile robots, has announced a partnership with PULSE Integration to deliver its t-Sort solution to companies looking to streamline and improve fulfillment operations. PULSE Integration leverages a blend of digital and physical technologies to deliver customized, scalable supply chain solutions for clients in the manufacturing, 3PL and retail industries.
“Tompkins Robotics’ t-Sort solution helps our customers keep up with growing fulfillment and shipping needs while achieving high speed and accuracy,” said Chris Paulsen, CEO of PULSE Integration. “Their flexible, fully modular solution enables our clients to implement leading automation that is flexible, scalable and configurable at a lower cost and in less time of traditional sortation systems.”
Ideal for small to large distribution operations, t-Sort is a portable, scalable robotic sortation system that operates similar to a tilt tray sorter without a fixed track, moving freely to any divert or induction station along the shortest path. Capable of handling parcels and units up to 66 pounds, the t-Sort system can process a wide variety of items including apparel, shoe boxes, general merchandise, shipping bags and small-to-medium boxes. Its applications include e-commerce, retail replenishment, returns, shipping and can also be deployed in the backroom of a postal or retail location. The t-Sort system is fully modular and additional robots can be added or removed instantaneously without any interruption or downtime.
“We are excited to partner with PULSE Integration and help support their mission to provide clients with technology solutions that are capable of adapting and scaling to meet constantly evolving consumer and supply requirements,” said Mike Futch, president of Tompkins Robotics.
