PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT | AMRs and AGVs
Tags: Robotics, Technology, Warehousing
- inVia Robotics Picker Robot: Through a robotics-as-a-service (RaaS) model, inVia Robotics combines its picker robots with AI-powered software to optimize warehouse operations. The solution uses algorithms to calculate inventory location, the optimal labor needed to complete fulfillment tasks, and the most efficient paths to take items from storage shelves to the central inVia PickerWall where workers are stationed to compile orders.
- BlueBotics ANT Navigation: The ANT navigation system by BlueBotics drives and directs AGVs and AMRs. The solution provides accurate and repeatable vehicle performance, allowing businesses to connect a range of vehicle types and brands in one fleet. As an organization’s site and needs evolve, multiple vehicles can be connected using the ANT server, which can also interface with a business’s WMS, MES, or ERP software.
- MHS AMR for Non-Conveyable Items: These flexible autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions are designed for large or irregularly shaped items. Using AI mapping, these AMRs can quickly pick up and transport parcels throughout the logistics facility automatically, avoiding obstacles and keeping their cargo secure. They have a small footprint and require no cables, wires, or floor channels, allowing for easy implementation and scaling as business needs change.
- Jungheinrich EKS 215a: A compact automated guided vehicle (AGV), the EKS 215a can be used for mixed operations with manual trucks and pedestrians in warehouses. Featuring lithium-ion technology that enables 24/7 operation, sensors for safety, and a laser-guided navigation system for accuracy, the EKS 215a automated pallet stacker can be integrated into existing IT and software.
- PopPick: Geek+’s goods-to-person solution can increase picking efficiency to up to 650 totes per hour, improving warehouse storage density by 50%. Geek+ picking robots carry movable shelves to workstations where PopPick’s intelligent robot arms retrieve totes or boxes from the shelves and place them in two picking points for operators. PopPick incorporates order forecasts to automatically adjust tote locations within the inventory rack to optimize picking efficiency.
- Seegrid Palion Lift AMR: The Palion Lift utilizes Seegrid IQ, a proprietary autonomy technology, to automate material movement to and from storage, staging areas, and workcells. Seegrid’s navigation technology uses cameras, algorithms, and machine learning to navigate in dynamic environments alongside human coworkers. The solution provides end-to-end task automation for low lift processes, transporting payloads up to 3,500 pounds and placing them at heights of up to 6 feet.
- Vecna Counterbalanced Fork Truck: This autonomous mobile robot (AMR) from Vecna Robotics offers vertical lift of up to 72 inches to help warehouses move a wide range of payloads and pallet types and lift inventory to and from equipment. The intelligent pallet-handling solution works alongside other materials handling vehicles and human workers to improve efficiency and throughput.
- Magazino SOTO: The mobile robot SOTO from Magazino automates material supply between the warehouse and the assembly line, transporting small load carriers or totes autonomously. The SOTO robot can pick up load carriers of different sizes and deliver them to flow racks at different heights, rotating them 90° to 180° as needed. Equipped with sensors, 3D cameras, and the ACROS.AI operating system, SOTO can perceive its environment, react to changes, and learn from experience.
