PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT | Robots
- Boston Dynamics Handle: This robot uses legs and wheels to provide an agile and small-footprint materials handling solution. Featuring an active counterbalancing system, Handle can pick up and move cases weighing more than 30 pounds. It can tackle pallet building, depalletizing, and truck unloading tasks.
- Berkshire Grey mobile robotic fulfillment system: Able to pick, pack, sort, and sequence both e-commerce and store replenishment orders, this solution deploys a team of container-toting mobile robots. The system sequences complete orders and discharges them for delivery based on customer strategies such as aisle-friendly groups for individual stores, shipping cutoff windows, and destination zones.
- NextShift Robotics TM-100 robot materials handling solution: This autonomous mobile robotic solution, comprised of TM-100 robots that can recognize and collaborate with humans, works in warehouses with mezzanines and requires minimal training to use. Its app has a simple interface that guides the picker to the aisle and zone for an accurate pick and placement into the tote.
- OTTO Motors 750: This self-driving vehicle from OTTO Motors, a division of Clearpath Robotics, is a materials handling workhorse with a payload of 750 kilograms, or more than 1,600 pounds. Designed to move pallet-scale loads, which would otherwise be manually moved by a pump truck or tugger, the vehicle uses the self-driving operating system OTTO OS to adapt to changes in the warehouse.
- Locus Robotics LocusBot: With a lightweight design, the autonomous LocusBot works safely alongside people and in mezzanine configurations, featuring a user-friendly interface that eliminates training time. Operating collaboratively with humans, LocusBots form a warehouse fulfillment solution that can triple piece-handling productivity in the warehouse.
- 6 River Systems Chuck: Finding its way around a warehouse with sensors and with no need for wires, cables, or stickers, Chuck integrates with a warehouse management system for use in put-away, picking, counting, replenishment, and sorting tasks. Aware of its surroundings, the mobile robot can move swiftly around boxes and racks, slowing down when equipment or people are in the area.
- Magazino TORU: This mobile picking robot stores, retrieves, and transports individual items in shelf racks. TORU handles small batch sizes and returns, working up to 18 hours a day. Specializing in picking and replenishing shoeboxes located on heights from 3 inches to 8 feet 2 inches, it works autonomously alongside human colleagues and uses regular WiFi to connect to the warehouse management system.
- Honeywell robotic unloader: Able to unload a wide range of packages, this autonomous unloader drives into a trailer or container and uses machine vision to identify various package shapes and sizes as well as the optimal approach to unloading them. A robotic arm with a series of small suction cups conforms to the package shape to gently extract it from the stack. A conveyor below the arm can serve as a sweeper for packages to move them out of the trailer.
