Yes, parcel overlabeling can be done with robots. Robotic overlabeling systems use robots to apply new labels to parcels over existing labels. These robots are equipped with sensors that can detect the presence of an existing label and ensure that the new label is applied in the correct position.
Robotic overlabeling systems can be integrated into a larger automated parcel sortation and handling system, where the robot can take the parcel, scan its barcode or RFID, and then apply the new label, with high accuracy and speed.
Robots can be programmed to be flexible and adapt to different parcel shapes and sizes. Some robots use vision systems to locate the existing label and then apply the new label in the correct position, which increases the accuracy of the overlabeling process.
The use of robots for parcel overlabeling can help businesses increase their efficiency and reduce labor costs. However, it’s important to note that implementing robotic overlabeling systems can be costly, and requires a significant investment in terms of hardware, software and maintenance, and it may not be cost-effective for small businesses with low volumes of parcels.
It’s important to consider the volume of labels you need to print, the type of products you are labeling, the budget and the specific requirements of your operations before making a decision.
