Company in the picture: PUMA. Digitalization is underway in all sectors of the economy. For most companies and especially retailers, this means more process automation, robot proliferation, increased communication, and even greater collaboration and interconnection between all actors, systems and tools in the value chain. We bumped into one company, that caught our attention in the way they have successfully introduced cutting-edge technology to their way of working: PUMA.
HOW PUMA LEADS THE WAY BY APPLYING CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY?
As a crucial link in the supply chain, warehouses are experiencing this digital evolution as well and they need to evolve to become more agile, intelligent and connected.
The world’s most successful brands (and companies) have taken the lead in this digitalization and among them, Puma was the first to build an intelligent warehouse.
Whilst everybody was talking about it, Puma did it: an intelligent picking robot that can independently store and retrieve small boxes in shelf racks. TORU handles individual boxes and can transport a backpack full of them directly to a handover station!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Equipped with smart camera technology, the robot is able to detect, pick up and transport individual objects, unlike existing robots that can only move pallets or entire boxes.
When TORU receives the order to pick a certain pair of shoes, it first obtains the location in the warehouse and a bar code.
Using three-dimensional camera images, the robot first produces an image of the current situation:
- Does the shelf contains a shoe box?
- Is the appropriate bar code present?
- Am I able to grab the box?
The idea behind PUMA’s world first intelligent warehouse is to set up a sophisticated system composed of automation, robotics, vision and autonomous movement!
Puma’s intelligent warehouse has already proven its worth on various important indicators within the company. It not only results in better margins, a happier workforce and higher client satisfaction, but it affects Puma’s growth and its revenue performance.
