WAMAS® Software Modules Revolutionize Robot-aided Picking


Robot Brains with WAMAS® logistics software

Every robot is only as good as the software it is controlled by. SSI SCHAEFER has comprehensive IT system expertise that gives it the required know-how in-house. The modules of the proprietary WAMAS® logistics software make robots more “intelligent” and fit for holistic logistics applications.

Software Modules

The Pack Pattern Generator is a software module for the WAMAS®  logistics software. The software’s algorithm calculates the ideal pack pattern for customized picking based on product dimensions and volume.

The interaction between the picking robot, Pack Pattern Generator (PPG) and WAMAS® ensures consistent quality excellence for reproducible pack patterns.

The result: palletizing optimally adapted to the delivery process in goods-out with maximum volume utilization.

Especially in food wholesale, a very differentiated range of items is found in the picking and construction of order pallets – the Pack Pattern Generator PPG solves these requirements with the intelligence of a comprehensive and powerful IT system. Picking or sorting in the branch is significantly reduced and lowers costs in the process chain.

The main element for controlling the robots is the Robot Material Flow Controller (RMC). It processes the information from the Pack Pattern Generator and the Vision image processing technology and thus controls the ideal motion sequences of the robots.

Industrial image processing is one of the key technologies of automation. It helps to control machines intelligently, automating processes and verifying and checking items. Software modules check quality criteria and provide valuable data for process optimization. With this expertise, SSI SCHAEFER is able to provide users with the required connections of software, intralogistics hardware and industrial image processing from a single source.
