Product Showcase

Locus Vector, the innovative and nimble AMR designed for small to medium payloads designed for high-productivity material handling and logistics applications. Built with an industrial strength chassis, omnidirectional mobility, and compact design, Vector can be deployed in a wide range of environments, tackling a variety of material handling tasks requiring payload capacities up to 600 lbs. Using state-of-the-art sensors and algorithms Vector can seamlessly maneuver through dynamic warehouse environments, significantly reducing cycle times and improving order fulfillment rates.
Locus Max, is the high-mobility AMR built to handle larger payloads with ease. Max combines high maneuverability, unparalleled strength, and stability with intelligent task allocation capabilities, making it ideal for material handling in demanding manufacturing and industrial settings. With its ability to autonomously transport heavy items, Max promises to revolutionize workflow efficiency and safety standards within warehouses.
In addition, Locus will highlight LocusONE, the industry's first data science-driven warehouse automation platform for enterprise-wide AMR deployments & performance management in brownfield or greenfield environments. The LocusONE platform supports the wide range of material movement needs found in today's fulfillment and distribution warehouses, enabling facilities of any size to operate a single, coordinated fleet encompassing multiple AMR form factors. The platform's intuitive interface empowers warehouse operators with real-time, actionable insights enabling them to monitor, manage, and optimize their operations with ease.

"We are thrilled to unveil our game-changing Vector and Max AMRs at the prestigious Automate Show," said Rick Faulk, CEO of Locus Robotics. "These revolutionary robots, combined with our powerful LocusONE software platform, empower manufacturing and warehouse operators to transform their operations, boost productivity, and streamline their product movement and fulfillment workflows within a single, coordinated platform. We invite attendees to experience firsthand the immense potential of our cutting-edge technology."
