Swisslog will partner with Etisalat for the first time at GITEX to physically display its highly efficient order processing solutions for single items. The robot-based solution ItemPiQ is designed for repeated, reliable picking of a wide range of items to fulfill fast delivery of orders at low operating costs. 

The ItemPiQ robot can handle a wide variety of common products in retail, e-commerce and pharmaceutical industries weighing up to 1.5kg and can reach 1,100mm. By using 3D vision technology for object recognition, it can pick up to 1,000 items per hour and allows the picking of a wide range of products of different shapes and sizes, error-free.

Automation and information technology are central to several Middle East and North Africa (MENA) countries' future development plans. According to a report by Gartner, the value of the sector is expected to reach USD168.8 billion by 2020.

Alain Kaddoum, general manager at Swisslog Middle East, commented, “The UAE is adopting innovation, research, science and technology to stimulate a diversified and knowledge-driven economy. To align themselves with the UAE Vision 2021, businesses and organizations are also embracing digitization and automation. Hence, GITEX is providing a perfect platform for innovators to display their products and discuss new technology trends.”
