Körber Group invests in robotics start-up Magazino

Magazino develops and builds perception driven, mobile robots that automate the handling of goods in intralogistics. The start-up's technology solutions enables dynamic warehousing and order picking as well as intelligent material disposition in e-commerce and assembly lines. With the precise access to individual articles, Magazino closes one of the central gaps in the automation of logistics processes. This opens up new opportunities for logistics to make process steps more efficient. With its participation in the start-up company founded in 2014, the Körber Group secures access to this key technology. This includes in particular the software suite that forms the "brain" of the robots. This software suite is designed to allow non-deterministic, perception driven robots to operate in environments that were originally made for humans.
The start-up company's portfolio comprises various robot systems that are used for specific projects. The central development of the Munich specialists is the "TORU" order picking robot. Until now, it was usually only possible to automatically retrieve entire load carriers such as pallets or crates, but "TORU" allows for precise access to individual objects. Thanks to this technology, 2D and 3D cameras can be used to locate and identify individual objects on the shelf, grab them securely and then place them precisely where they are needed. This makes the picking process "Pick-by-Robot" possible for the first time. The intelligent robot works in parallel with the people and delivers the required parts at the right time directly to the assembly line or shipping station.
"The Magazino team has developed real innovations with its robotics solutions that have the potential to make a lasting impact on intralogistics," says Michael Horn, Member of the Executive Board of Körber AG. "The partnership offers decisive added value, in particular for customers of our Business Area Logistics Systems. At the same time, our investment strengthens our position in a competitive market environment. In addition, as part of our digitization initiatives, we will work with the Magazino team to drive forward future-oriented developments."
“We are very pleased about the participation of Körber AG and look forward to working with the Group and its Business Areas," emphasizes Frederik Brantner, co-founder and CEO of Magazino GmbH. We are particularly looking forward to exchanging ideas with the teams of the Business Area Logistics Systems. We will benefit from the experience of our new partner at all levels and thus sustainably continue our growth course."

Magazino entwickelt und produziert wahrnehmungsgesteuerte, mobile Roboter, die das Bewegen von Stückgütern in der Intralogistik vollständig automatisieren. Die Technologielösungen des Start-ups ermöglichen eine dynamische Lagerhaltung und Kommissionierung sowie intelligente Materialdisposition im E-Commerce und an Montagelinien. Mit dem stückgenauen Zugriff auf einzelne Artikel schließt Magazino eine der zentralen Lücken in der Automatisierung von Logistikprozessen. So ergeben sich für die Logistik neue Möglichkeiten, um Prozessschritte effizienter zu gestalten. Mit der Beteiligung an dem in 2014 gegründeten Start-up sichert sich der Körber-Konzern Zugang zu dieser Schlüsseltechnologie. Dazu zählt insbesondere die Softwaresuite, welche das „Gehirn“ der Roboter bildet. Diese Softwaresuite dient dazu, nicht-deterministische, also wahrnehmungsgesteuerte, Roboter in für Menschen gemachte Umgebungen agieren zu lassen.

Das Portfolio des Start-ups umfasst verschiedene Roboter-Systeme, die objektspezifisch zum Einsatz kommen. Die zentrale Entwicklung der Münchener Spezialisten ist der Kommissionier-Roboter „TORU“. Konnten bisher meist nur ganze Ladungsträger wie Paletten oder Kisten automatisiert geholt werden, ermöglicht „TORU“ einen stückgenauen Zugriff auf einzelne Objekte. Dank dieser Technologie können über 2D- und 3D-Kameras einzelne Objekte im Regal lokalisiert und identifiziert, sicher gegriffen und schließlich präzise an ihrem Bestimmungsort wieder abgelegt werden. Damit wird das Kommissionier-Verfahren „Pick-by-Robot“ erstmals möglich. Der intelligente Roboter arbeitet parallel zu den Menschen und bringt benötigte Teile zum richtigen Zeitpunkt direkt bis zur Werkbank oder Versandstation.

„Das Magazino-Team hat mit seinen Robotik-Lösungen Innovationen entwickelt, die das Potential haben, die Intralogistik nachhaltig zu verändern“, sagt Michael Horn, Mitglied des Konzernvorstands der Körber AG. „Die Partnerschaft bietet insbesondere für Kunden unseres Geschäftsfelds Logistik-Systeme einen entscheidenden Mehrwert. Gleichzeitig stärken wir mit dem Investment unsere Position in einem kompetitiven Marktumfeld. Zudem werden wir im Rahmen unserer Digitalisierungsinitiativen gemeinsam mit dem Team von Magazino weitere zukunftsweisende Entwicklungen vorantreiben.“

„Wir freuen uns sehr über die Beteiligung der Körber AG und auf die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Konzern und seinen Geschäftsfeldern“, betont Frederik Brantner, Mitgründer und CEO der Magazino GmbH. „Wir sind besonders gespannt auf den Austausch mit den Teams des Geschäftsfelds Logistik-Systeme. Von den Erfahrungen unseres neuen Partners werden wir auf allen Ebenen profitieren und so unseren Wachstumskurs nachhaltig fortsetzen.“
