The Brightpick Autopicker was one of the three product award winners at LogiMAT

European companies took out all three best product awards at last month’s LogiMAT materials handling trade show in Stuttgart.

The three best products were chosen from more than 120 entries by a panel of seven expert judges.

The winners were a picking robot, a packaging machine and an AI language control system for warehouse management systems.  

Best Product for Order Picking, Conveying, Lifting and Storing Technology:

Photoneo Brightpick’s Brightpick Autopicker

The Slovak company took out the best product award for its Brightpick Autopicker, the only autonomous mobile fulfillment robot in the world that can pick and consolidate orders directly in warehouse aisles, capable of handling everything from non-refrigerated and refrigerated foods to pharmaceuticals, medical devices, packaged goods, cosmetics, electronics and clothing in polybags. 

Best Product for Identification, Cargo Securement and Packaging and Loading Technology:

CMC Packaging Automation’s CMC CartonWrap DUO

The Italian company took out the award for its CartonWrap DUO, the first machine on the market that can produce both boxes and envelopes tailored to the dimensions of the items to be packaged, all in a single workflow. 

This machine can reduce packaging volume, cardboard waste and greenhouse gas emissions. 

Its design uses up to 50% less corrugated cardboard and 70% less adhesive than existing technologies. 

It also enhances the customer experience because custom packaging is more reliable during transport. 

Software, Communications and Information Technology:

Logistics Reply’s LEApedia Open AI language control system for warehouse management

The German company’s LEApedia is a bidirectional OpenAI language control system for warehouse management systems (WMS). 

The intelligent chatbot, integrated into the cloud-native SaaS WMS solution LEA ReplyTM, responds to questions and commands in natural language. 

A smart search feature allows users to use natural language input to search for terms or workflow descriptions, for example, so they can more quickly and easily find their way around the system. 

The LEApedia module can be tailored to each customer’s unique specifications and software environment and integrated rapidly without any need to slow down or halt production. 

“I am particularly pleased that this year’s award winners come from three countries. This underscores the importance of LogiMAT as an international hotspot for innovations and the appeal of the Stuttgart location,” says exhibition director Michael Ruchty from event organiser EUROEXPO GmbH.
