Voodoo Robotics IIoT Pick-to-Light Disruptive Materials Handling Solutions Featured in IoT Journal

Voodoo Robotics was recently featured in IoT Journal magazine. Trevor Blumenau, the CEO of Voodoo Robotics, based in Plano, Texas, was interviewed by manufacturing journalist TR Cutler and noted that Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) real-time, Web-connected, leased pick-to-light devices are the best choice for more than 90 percent of the distribution, warehouse and cellular manufacturing assembly market. With such a declarative claim, it seems imperative to dig a little deeper and see whether that assertion held water.

Blumenau added that the highest productivity from a warehouse operation may require different technologies, which may be better-suited depending on the order frequency and value of a particular stock-keeping units (SKU).

Comparing pick technologies side-by-side often reveals that pick-to-light solutions have a clear edge over other solutions when picking accuracy is measured. The light indicators make it difficult to pick from the wrong location—or the incorrect amount—when the light is both the pick instruction and location indicator.

About Voodoo Robotics:

Voodoo Robotics, (https://voodoorobotics.com/starter-kit/) the leading innovator in picking warehouse automation, provides cost-effective technology for warehouse inventory management and order fulfillment solutions. With engineering and robotic expertise, the Texas-based pioneer brings the next wave of state-of-the-art automation to material handling industries.

Voodoo offers a unique lease-based Pick-to-Light system designed to modernize warehouse operations by leveraging the latest IIoT (Industrial Internet-of-Things) technology. The picking hardware integrates effortlessly with existing WMS (Warehouse Management Systems), or ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems allowing distribution centers, warehouses, and 3PLs (third party logistics) to scale operations, only paying for the lights needed each month. This revolutionary approach to leasing Pick-to-Light devices on a month-to-month, pay-as-you-go basis avoids long-term commitments and costly up-front fees.

A companion product, SKU-Keeper Inventory Management, is designed for warehouses that do not have an existing WMS or ERP system. Emphasizing simplicity and easy-of-use, the cloud software is also leased on a low-cost, low-risk month-to-month basis.

The company also provides smart, ROI (return-on-investment) driven Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems (ASRS) with an innovative 3D user interface, compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Safari. The robotic systems are designed, simulated and run, all using a Warehouse Descriptive Language (WDL), a concept invented by the company.

All of Voodoo Robotics products are patented or patent-pending. Currently the company is attracting best-practice, lean manufacturing focused, systems integrators throughout North America. The company is a proud member of MHI. Follow Voodoo Robotics on Twitter at @VoodooRobotics or at LinkedIn at
