January 2022- Montreal, Canada – Planiform is proud to present its revolutionary automated system for storage and retrieval of garments on hangers (GOH). The GOH Hive is now market ready and is expected to receive accolades from a variety of garment-handling businesses including warehouses, distribution centres, e-commerce businesses, and more.
The differentiating factor
The GOH Hive is an innovative system powered by smart robots that read unique SKUs and then determine how each garment should be handled. The system is built on multiple levels and robots use elevators to access the rows of garments stored in ship-ready condition. Because the system can handle single SKUs, it is the ideal solution for e-commerce orders. The automated system makes use of all available storage space and can operate with as little as one human operator: making it a desirable solution during periods of labour shortage.
Greater speed and efficiency
The GOH Hive is both quick and efficient, providing operators with a more detailed overview of stock inventory and management. Depending on how many robots are added to the system and the system configuration, an unlimited number of items can be processed per hour using the GOH Hive. Robots work all day and night to store garments and prepare items for shipping. Due to the recent unprecedented increase in e-commerce business, many service providers are struggling to meet the growing demands of their businesses. The GOH Hive is a scalable solution that allows for greater precision and reduced human error in garment handling.
What to expect
Planiform has chosen to exhibit its latest product at MODEX 2022. Planiform will be showcasing one of the 2 robots used in GOH Hive, the Forager. The Forager is the centrepiece of GOH Hive as it autonomously handles unique SKUs using a robotic arm and advanced software for locating and identifying different items.
