Bloomfield, New Jersey- abco automation has partnered with OPEX Corporation to offer Perfect Pick® to the material handling industry. The Perfect Pick is a unique product-to-person technology that is highly flexible and scalable. Given abco automation’s expertise in product-to-person technologies the partnership is a great fit.
Perfect Pick’s small footprint and superior fixed-aisle scalability offers a low cost entry point to automate picking operations. Perfect Pick’s scalability lies in its iBOT® technology. The system does not require conveyors or elevators like on typical shuttle systems. This means that if you want to increase speed or throughput, you only need to add more independent, wireless iBOTs.
In addition, because of the small footprint, Perfect Pick is a great option for brownfield projects or adding product-to-person technologies to handle the SKU’s that would benefit from being placed in a P2P system. abco automation has been preaching the gospel of mathematical analysis of distribution centers and drilling down into what technology serves each part of the Pareto Curve.
“This is an automated solution that clients are going to feel comfortable with and that they will understand quickly, said Jeff Hedges of OPEX. “Perfect Pick’s simple, uncomplicated design allows clients to quickly see how it will function in their distribution center”.
“OPEX Corporation is excited to add abco Automation as an integration partner representing Perfect Pick. Like OPEX, abco is a family-owned and operated company headquartered in New Jersey and in business for over 40 years. This rich history and depth of experience along with abco’s stated mission to apply the “best-of-breed” product-to-person technologies to warehouse and distribution center design makes the addition of Perfect Pick a natural fit,” says Hedges.
“We are really excited about the Opex relationship because it provides us with Perfect Pick, a very powerful tool that we can bring to our clients that need a high rate, piece picking order fulfillment solution. Combined with our data analysis capabilities and process engineering expertise, the Perfect Pick solution can be specifically engineered to fit our customers applications,” Jack Lehr, President of abco automation.
