Goods-to-Robot Picking

Bastian Robotics integrates some of the most cutting-edge 2-D and 3-D vision components with its flexible and robust End of Arm Tool (EoAT) designs to create robotic picking solutions perfect for goods-to-robot operations.  Our solutions are capable of picking the most complex piles of products.  These systems can be designed in a modular fashion allowing new products to be easily introduced into a system and identified by the robot.

Interested in implementing goods-to-robot picking technology in your facility, or simply want to know more about it?


How it Works

First, a tote containing randomly oriented objects is presented to the 3-D camera system. At this point a series of photos is taken to map out the object orientations. Within a split second, the robot and vision controls identify the “most pick-able” object in the pile and release the robot to pick it.

Once an object has been identified, controls manipulate the robot arm and EoAT inside the tote while using suction or a gripping technology to pick an object without encroaching on other objects or the tote walls. At this point the robot retracts from the bin and places the object in a secondary shipping carton and is ready for another pick and place sequence.

Goods-to-Robot Picking System

Robot Picking Items from Tote



  • Eliminates the need for upstream sorting of randomly oriented, bin-stored products
  • Reduces the tedious, time-intensive process of picking items from piles of product
  • Modular, quick programming for newly introduced SKUs
  • Reduced labor costs
  • Improved order accuracy
  • Capable of picking 300-400 units per hour
