OPEX® Enhances Warehouse Automation Sorting Technology to Incorporate RFID Scanning

Share

OPEX® Corporation, a global leader in Next Generation Automation for almost 50 years, is expanding the capabilities of its leading-edge Sure Sort® Warehouse Automation technology to incorporate radio frequency identification (RFID) scanning to meet client needs and increase operational speed and efficiency.

A scalable, reliable, high-throughput sorting system, Sure Sort has long been a preferred warehouse automation solution for distribution centers, retail stores, and third-party logistics companies that look for cost-effective and accurate order handling, cross-docking, and reverse logistics.

OPEX has added the option of RFID scanning capabilities to meet growing needs from clients, especially apparel manufacturers and retailers. Bar codes sometimes get hidden in garments and require additional operator handling, which slows operations. Because RFID employs radio waves, scanning does not require a visual connection. In addition to the apparel industry, RFID scanning is popular for cell phone and pharmaceuticals processing to name a few applications.

“The expansion to RFID is just another example of how we live our values and principles to listen and be responsive to customers’ needs,” said Alex Stevens, President, OPEX Warehouse Automation. “It is another great tool in our growing portfolio of modular and flexible warehouse automation technology and solutions.”

With increasing labor costs and supply chain challenges, the demand for more responsive warehouse automation technology has never been more crucial. Sure Sort robotic delivery vehicles, iBOTs®, quickly and accurately process up to 2,400 items each hour with as little as three operators, and have the ability to recharge as they travel through the system.

OPEX will be exhibiting at NRF 2023 at the Javits Center in New York City January 15th-17th. The Sure Sort automated put wall will be on site in OPEX’s booth #769. Attendees can see a live demonstration as well as meet with automation experts during the expo.

With generations of industry expertise and a proven track record developing first-class automation capabilities and advanced engineering, OPEX continuously reimagines automation technology to help clients solve their most significant business challenges. For nearly five decades, OPEX has served as a trusted partner, collaborating closely with clients to develop customized, scalable solutions.

New Peer Reviewed Research Reinforces the Carbon Neutrality of Sustainably Sourced Biomass in the U.S. Southeast8.2.2023 15:00:00 EET | Press release

Enviva Inc. (NYSE: EVA), the world’s leading producer of sustainably sourced woody biomass, along with the U.S. Industrial Pellet Association (USIPA), welcome a recent study, titled “Impacts of the US southeast wood pellet industry on local forest carbon stocks.” The study has been peer-reviewed and published in a leading scientific journal, Nature, confirming that the wood pellet industry has met the overall condition of forest carbon neutrality in the U.S. Southeast between 2000 and 2019. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), if harvest volumes (for wood products and energy) and losses related to mortality and disturbances do not exceed the growth across the whole forest, there is no net reduction in forest carbon stock. The 2022 study in Nature additionally confirms, by data, that carbon neutrality guidelines have been met by biomass producers in the U.S. Southeast, which is the world’s leading region for wood pellet production and export. Between 2000 and 2019, data a
