Previously, FIMEC released a 3D robotised palletising solution for multiple-size packages — a patented technology that allows for the processing of up to 900 parcels per hour, while improving staff working conditions.
FIMEC Technologies’ most recent product, the U-Care Unloader, includes a unique and inventive process for gently tipping pallets, which reduces damage because the parcels are not subjected to any impact during unloading. This system can be used with pallets of all sizes without any additional modification, and can handle up to 120 pallets per hour.
This high processing rate is accompanied by reduced noise levels and the operator can work in complete safety thanks to the equipment’s well-designed ergonomics. An intuitive interface, which includes a display unit with integrated Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), ensures the solution is easy to use. This equipment can be supplemented with a device known as U-ASSIST, which holds the parcels in place during unwrapping.
The growing e-commerce sector presents a variety of challenges for logistics and parcel-delivery providers, including higher workloads, an increasingly diverse array of containers, and peak-load periods that are often difficult to predict.
FIMEC Technologies, a French-based company that specialises in automated loading/unloading solutions for logistics and express-delivery platforms, is helping companies to meet these challenges through innovations such as FIMEC’s new 3D robotised palletising technology, which can be used to process multiple-size packages.
FIMEC Technologies’ unique system takes 3D measurements of each parcel and identifies its exact position within each container (or on each conveyor belt). A heuristic algorithm then informs a robot which parcel to select, providing all the relevant, precise information about the parcel’s position, as well as the desirable position and orientation of the parcel on the pallet.
As a result, parcels can be placed and oriented in order to ensure optimal loading density onto transport vehicles. This system also speeds up the loading of the parcels onto the pallets, resulting in up to 900 parcels being processed per hour. Additionally, the use of automation improves the staff's working conditions.
This innovation is the latest in a series of container-, carton- and pallet-unloading solutions developed over the past decade by FIMEC TECHNOLOGIES. With the company’s automatic unloaders, a single operator can handle from 3,000 to 5,000 parcels per hour.
FIMEC Technologies designs progressive solutions tailored to each customer. The company’s technical personnel can adapt the palletising equipment to new containers while ensuring safety and maintaining parcel integrity.
The company’s solutions, which put particular emphasis on ergonomics and operator safety, are designed to meet the specific requirements of the logistics and parcel-delivery sectors. FIMEC Technologies also pays special attention to energy efficiency and the reduction of equipment noise to below 68 decibels (dB).
The innovative solutions developed by FIMEC Technologies offer a way to keep pace with rising productivity needs while providing comfortable working conditions for operators. The company’s ongoing efforts to refine existing procedures and develop exclusive systems are yielding constant improvements in equipment performance and ergonomics.

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
