DematicDexterity400x275Dematic has announced a strategic partnership with Dexterity, which provides warehouse robotics, to offer full-task robotics as part of Dematic’s intelligent automation solutions. The relationship will see Dematic selling and deploying Dexterity robotics globally and facilitate Dexterity’s entry into the European market.

Through the combination of advanced supply chain solutions with robotics, the partnership aims to provide fully integrated, autonomous, and scalable solutions to the market – from specific subsystems to complete operations, Dematic said. The company aims to deploy robotic systems already contracted with Dexterity’s consumer goods manufacturing, retail and parcel customers, as well as sell and deploy Dexterity solutions within its own warehouse, distribution and order fulfillment customers over the next several years.

Dexterity offers a software-as-a-service robotic intelligence platform that turns standard industrial robot arms into full-task robots with vision, a sense of touch, and the ability to learn and multi-task. This lets robots solve operational challenges such as creating mixed-SKU pallets, singulating and inducting items, and fulfilling orders. The company said more than 37 million goods have been picked by Dexterity robots in warehouses across the U.S., contributing to the refined algorithms and advanced machine learning to enable efficiencies in labor, material flow and system efficiency.

“Our growing partnership with Dexterity is yet another example of Dematic taking the necessary steps to continue to be a software and technology leader,” said Hasan Dandashly, president of Dematic and KION Group executive board member. “As a leader, we provide our customers with the intelligent solutions they require for success, and fully integrated robotic solutions fit hand-in-glove with that.”

The first Dematic-deployed robot system is scheduled to be deployed in Q4 2022, the companies said. 

“Dexterity-powered robots have increased the market demand for flexible automation that can operate in existing workflows and infrastructure,” said Samir Menon, CEO of Dexterity. “Partnering with an industry leader like Dematic will accelerate Dexterity customers deploying robots and greatly expand the global reach of Dexterity robots.”
