Pharmathek is looking for the new design of the case of the Sintesi robotized warehouse and of the automatic loader Pharmaload, installed inside the pharmacies and developed to facilitate the pharmacist and her/his collaborators in the daily management of the medicines and their data.
The object of the contest is the case, that is the external enclosure, that covers the internal components of the Sintesi robotized warehouse and of the Pharmaload automatic loader. A peculiar feature of the robotized warehouse is its modular structure that enables to adapt it to the various contexts of installation, thanks to its modules and its customisable dimensions.
How to use
The robotized warehouse enables the pharmacist and her/his collaborators to manage the medicines and their data, in an easy and automated way. In particular, there are four main modalities:
- Phase of medicine delivery for selling purposes: the pharmacist, through the pharmacy management software, sends the request to the warehouse for the products to be automatically collected by the robot and delivered to one of the delivery doors accessible to the operators;
- Phase of medicine delivery for warehouse management purposes: the operator sends the request from her/his position for the robot to automatically collect the medicine from the warehouse and deliver it at the dedicated exit service hatch, that constitutes the point of delivery;
- Assisted loading: the operator uses the dedicated scanner to read the product and places it on the conveyor belt, outside the hatch door for inserting the medicines. After verifying that the dimensions of the product match the target size, the warehouse opens the hatch door and moves the belt taking the product inside; then, the robot will automatically store it;
- Automatic loading (through Pharmaload): the operator pours the products to store in the hopper of the automatic loader and Pharmaload will provide automatically to identify, measure and take the products inside the warehouse where the robot will autonomously provide for their storage.
