About Tompkins Robotics

Tompkins Robotics is a global leader focused on the robotic automation of distribution and fulfillment operations. Our primary system, tSort, consists of autonomous mobile robots that sort a wide range of items and parcels to consolidation points for order fulfillment, store replenishment, returns, parcel distribution – virtually any process in the supply chain. tSort is a truly modular, scalable, and portable robotic sortation system that helps build world-class supply chains while providing unmatched flexibility and throughput. With three models, tSort; tSort Plus; tSort Mini; and two sortation methods, tilt trays and cross belts, Tompkins Robotics systems handle the broadest range of product on the market - as small as a penny to up to 40 inches long by 30 inches wide and weighing up to 120 pounds. Our systems work in small operations in the backroom of a grocery, supercenter or mall anchor store to large fulfillment centers processing millions of units a day. Our systems maximize performance, making our clients more agile, adaptable, profitable, and successful in today’s dynamic marketplace.

We also have other proprietary solutions such as the xChange, tSort3D, and xPress. xChange is a robotic sortation order removal and replacement system for orders and shipping systems. tSort3D is a new, very dense sortation system ideal for ecommerce and provides as much as 10 times the sort destinations and volume compared to competing solutions. xPress is an overhead robotic transport system that can be used in retail to DC environments. We continue to expand the core systems with complementary robotics and integrated material handling systems to automate fulfillment operations.

Sustainable Solution Description

Environmental Impact Robots are smaller and use a smaller footprint platform, which in turn saves materials, energy consumption and has less environmental impact associated with the manufacturing of larger systems. Power Conservation Electrical requirements are very light.  A typical 60 robot system uses less than 2kWh, which is less than that of a typical household clothes dryer.   A robotic sortation system requires only 14% of the power of a comparable crossbelt sorter. A 400-robot system operates on 120VAC single phase power and requires about 300A of total capacity. This is in comparison to a crossbelt sorter of similar throughput which also requires about 300A capacity but operates on 480VAC 3-phase power. Robots employ regenerative breaking to capture energy for recharging the batteries as the robots decelerate, much like modern electric cars. Minimizes power consumption for charging. Navigation does not require any reading of QR or other barcodes. Since navigation fiducial markers are RFID tags, the power required by each robots is lower than other warehouse robots using optical navigation. This is a patented technology. No lights are needed for the system to operate, the robots can run in the dark. Lights are only needed where humans are located at the induction stations. Robots park and use only standby power when not needed. The system will power down all of the robots if they are not used for a specified amount of time. HVAC Advantages No heating or cooling required. The system can operate from -14F to 131F. Clear height of ceilings may be very low and the footprint is small. This means that the air handling volume is minimized in temperate-controlled facilities. No significant amount of heat is generated by the system. Recyclability Robots use Lithium Titanate batteries which are long life, easily recycled and are environmentally friendly compared to lead acid batteries commonly used in warehouse AGVs. Robot circuit boards are RoHS compliant Robot bodies are made from recyclable ABS Tables and all steel components are recyclable, as are robot motors and metal chassis components. Extended Life Our systems are long life, minimizing the consumption of materials. Systems are reusable and portable. They may be relocated or recommissioned, rather than disposed or salvaged.
