OPEX® Enhances Warehouse Automation Sorting Technology to Include RFID Reading

MOORESTOWN, New Jersey, January 10, 2023–(BUSINESS WIRE)–OPEX® The Corporation, a world leader in next-generation automation for nearly 50 years, is expanding the capabilities of its industry-leading Sure Sort® Warehouse Automation technology to include radio frequency identification (RFID) scanning to meet the needs of customers and increase operational speed and efficiency.

A scalable, reliable, and high-throughput sorting system, Sure Sort has long been the preferred warehouse automation solution for distribution centers, retail outlets, and third-party logistics providers looking to manage order, cost -effective and accurate cross-docking and reverse logistics.

OPEX added the option of RFID reading capabilities to meet growing customer needs, especially apparel manufacturers and retailers. Barcodes are sometimes hidden in clothing and require additional manipulation from the operator, which slows down operations. Since RFID uses radio waves, reading does not require a visual connection. Outside of the clothing industry, RFID reading is widespread in mobile phone processing and pharmaceuticals, to name a few applications.

“The expansion of RFID technology is another example of how we are adapting our values ​​and principles of listening and being responsive to customer needs,” said Alex Stevens, president of OPEX Warehouse. Automation. “This is another great tool in our growing portfolio of modular and flexible warehouse automation technologies and solutions.”

With ever-increasing labor costs and supply chain challenges, the need for more responsive warehouse automation technologies has never been greater. Sure Sort’s robotic delivery vehicles, iBOTs®, quickly and accurately process up to 2,400 items per hour with just three operators, and recharge as they move through the system.

OPEX will be present at the NRF 2023 show to be held at the Javits Center in New York, from January 15 to 17. The Sure Sort automated placement wall will be at OPEX booth number 769. Attendees will be able to watch a live demonstration and meet experts in automation during the show.
