OPEX® Corporation, a player in Next Generation Automation providing innovative solutions for warehousedocument, and mail automation, will exhibit for the first time at LogiMAT, Europe’s largest global trade show for intralogistics solutions and process management.

How will OPEX leverage LogiMAT?

LogiMAT will be held from 31 May to 2 June in Stuttgart, Germany. OPEX’s automation experts will conduct live demonstrations of the company’s Sure Sort® sorting system and showcase all of OPEX’s warehouse automation solutions designed to help businesses thrive.

“We are excited to present our solutions at LogiMAT for the first time,” said John Sauer, Senior Director, Global Business Development, Warehouse Automation, OPEX.

“OPEX has been a leader in warehouse automation for over 10 years in North America. As we grow our reach across Europe, we can help even more clients find automation solutions to improve their workflow, accelerate change, and drive efficiencies in their infrastructure.”

Earlier this year, OPEX opened a new facility in Duisburg, Germany, where clients and product resellers have the opportunity to interact with OPEX’s suite of warehouse automation solutions, including Sure Sort. Introduced in 2017, the Sure Sort small-item robotic sorting system has revolutionized order fulfillment in ecommerce distribution centers worldwide.

What are the capabilities of OPEX’s Sure Sort?

With a compact array of sort locations that can be scaled, sized, and customized in the small footprint of a single-pass put wall, Sure Sort quickly and accurately processes up to 2,400 items per hour with limited labor. Sure Sort easily directs a wide range of items, including cylindrical, clear, plastic bagged and blister pack items up to 2.27 kilograms.

Sure Sort can also handle products as large as 38,1cm long, 30,48 cm wide, and 15,24 cm high. The popular importances of Sure Sort include the following:

  • Order fulfillment applications for ecommerce;
  • Retail store distribution (brick and mortar);
  • Parcel sortation/presort by zip code or mail zone to reduce shipping charges;
  • Kitting for assembly of item-of-the-month clubs or meal delivery kits, for example;
  • Reverse logistics and replenishment; and
  • Warehouse cross-docking, retail cross-docking and sort-to-aisle where space is limited.

OPEX is vertically integrated—innovating, engineering, manufacturing, selling and servicing all of its automated solutions. This translates to the highest degree of quality equipment, reliable operations, product longevity and an exceptional client experience.
