Tompkins Robotics, a leading, award-winning provider of autonomous mobile robot (AMR) fulfilment solutions, have just announced the launch of its innovative PickPal product series.
Tompkins Robotics say this line of pick assist (PA) AMRs is set to transform the supply chain industry and drive efficiency in order fulfilment processes. Attendees at the upcoming CeMAT Australia exhibition will have the exclusive opportunity to witness live demonstrations of the PickPal system at the Tompkins Robotics CeMAT Stand D31 from July 25-27.
The PickPal product series is designed to meet the evolving needs of businesses, providing adaptive, flexible, and scalable solutions. Currently, the series features two models: the standard PickPal, capable of carrying orders weighing up to 60 kg, and the advanced PickPal+, with a remarkable capacity of up to 100 kg. These AMRs offer unprecedented speed and precision in order picking, streamlining operations and enhancing overall productivity.
Recognising the growing demand for efficient and cost-effective robotic solutions, Tompkins Robotics has implemented a Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) model for the PickPal series. This model ensures rapid implementation, minimal upfront investment, and low operating costs, making it an ideal solution for businesses looking to optimise their order fulfilment operations. By seamlessly integrating PickPal into existing systems, businesses can achieve significant labour savings, increased capacity, and improved workforce efficiency.
“The PickPal series represents a new era of robotic solutions, providing customers with more flexibility, lower monthly costs, and minimal risk,” says Mike Futch, President & CEO of Tompkins Robotics. “Traditional, large-scale solutions often struggle to address the growing challenges faced by 3PL, e-commerce, and fulfilment customers. PickPal’s ability to handle the rising number of SKUs, increasing order volumes, and the need for faster deliveries positions it as the ultimate solution for customers seeking to overcome their fulfilment obstacles.”
In a strategic move to expand its presence in the Australian and New Zealand markets, Tompkins Robotics has joined forces with Primary Sight, a digital warehousing solutions expert. Primary Sight brings a wealth of experience and expertise, enabling Tompkins Robotics to deliver its cutting-edge AMR technology locally. The partnership between Tompkins Robotics and Primary Sight will be showcased at CeMAT Stand D31, where industry professionals can witness firsthand the transformative potential of this collaboration.
“The partnership between Primary Sight and Tompkins Robotics creates an exciting product offering for the ANZ region that is more flexible, scalable, and cost-effective than traditional solutions on the market,” says Thompson Brockman, VP of Operations at Tompkins Robotics. “Primary Sight’s customer-first approach aligns strongly with our values, ensuring that we deliver exceptional results to our clients.”
Sean Hewat, Head of Solutions ANZ at Primary Sight, highlights the significance of partnering with Tompkins Robotics, a global leader in AMR technology. “We are thrilled to work together with Tompkins Robotics to bring innovative and cost-effective solutions to the Australian and New Zealand markets. Our collaboration will provide customers in the region with flexible, scalable, and customer-centric robotic technology that drives operational efficiency.”
The partnership between Tompkins Robotics and Primary Sight aims to deliver transformational robotic technology, coupled with disciplined project management principles, to execute projects and deliver exceptional value to their customers.
Tompkins Robotics continues to push the boundaries of innovation, developing technologies that enhance the picking and sortation processes, and increasing the capacity and utilisation of distribution and fulfilment centres. With the introduction of the PickPal product series and the strategic partnership with Primary Sight, Tompkins Robotics is at the forefront of revolutionising the supply chain industry, offering cutting-edge solutions that address the complex challenges faced by businesses in today’s rapidly evolving market.
The successful deployment of Tompkins Robotics’ tSort mobile automation by Kmart Australia, which supported its distributed logistics network during a period of surging demands, served as a testament to the effectiveness and reliability of the company’s solutions. This achievement not only solidified Tompkins Robotics’ position as a leader in the industry but also generated multiple requests for additional projects in the region.
Mike Futch, President & CEO of Tompkins Robotics, recognised the importance of finding a partner who could operate locally and deliver exceptional results, which led to the collaboration with Primary Sight. With their deep industry experience and a track record of delivering innovative and cost-effective solutions, Primary Sight was the perfect fit to enhance Tompkins Robotics’ operations in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The PickPal product series, with its ability to handle increasing SKU numbers, accommodate higher order volumes, and meet faster delivery requirements, has the potential to revolutionise order fulfilment processes. By leveraging the RaaS model, businesses can quickly integrate PickPal into their existing operations, significantly reducing implementation costs and ownership expenses while unlocking substantial labour savings and capacity improvements.
Tompkins Robotics and Primary Sight’s joint presence at CeMAT Australia offers an exclusive opportunity for industry professionals to witness the transformative capabilities of the PickPal product series. Live demonstrations at Stand D31 will showcase the speed, efficiency, and adaptability of the PickPal AMRs, highlighting their potential to revolutionise the supply chain landscape.
Sean Hewat, Head of Solutions ANZ at Primary Sight, expressed his excitement about the partnership with Tompkins Robotics and the new product offering for the Australian and New Zealand markets. By combining Tompkins Robotics’ global leadership in AMR technology with Primary Sight’s local expertise, the partnership aims to provide customers with flexible, scalable, and customer-centric robotic solutions that optimise their operations.
As Tompkins Robotics continues to push the boundaries of innovation, the company remains committed to developing technologies and applications that enhance the picking and sortation processes. Through their partnership with Primary Sight and the introduction of the PickPal product series, Tompkins Robotics is poised to redefine the supply chain industry, offering transformative robotic technology that drives operational efficiency and delivers exceptional value to customers.
