Robots Designed to Improve Material Handling at Warehouses and Fulfillment Centers
This is an example of high speed milling of a soft foam statue into a sculpture using Robotmaster and a KUKA Robot. The 7-axis robot allows accurate cutting from all angles.
From Fetch Robotics (the core team from Unbounded Robotics/all former employees of Willow Garage): The Fetch Robotics’ system is comprised of a mobile base (called Freight) and an advanced mobile manipulator (called Fetch). Fetch and Freight can also use a charging dock for autonomous continuous operations; allowing the robots to charge when needed and then continue on with their tasks. In addition, the system includes accompanying software to support the robots and integrate with the warehouse environment. Both robots are built upon the open source robot operating system, ROS. Fetch is an advanced mobile manipulator, including features such as: Telescoping spine with variable height from 1.09 to 1.491 meters Capacity to lift approximately 6 kgs. 3D RGB Depth Sensor Back-Drivable 7DOF Arm Modular Gripper Interface Head Expansion Mount Points Pan-Tilt Head Differential Drive ROS-Enabled Freight is a modular base, used separately or in conjunction with Fetch. Features include: Base Expansion Mount Points Payload support of approximately 68 kgs. 2D Laser Scanner Stereo Speaker Computer Access Panel Run-Stop ROS-Enabled ( full press release )
More and more, when consumers or businesses place an order they want those items delivered immediately. Between services such as Amazon Prime, Google Express, eBay Now, and the continuing growth of e-commerce, there is a consumer expectation of speed and efficiency that is putting significant pressure on the role of logistics and e-commerce warehouses. To address this challenge, Fetch Robotics today introduced a robotics system designed for the logistics industry.

Industrial Robotics - Featured Product
Challenges on the loading dock are characteristic of greater pressures from the rise of e-commerce. Loading and unloading freight from trailers, trucks and shipping containers are arduous, repetitive tasks plagued by high turnover. Even with regularly available staff, manually unloading freight and the constant lifting and twisting results in fatigue and inconsistent, declining productivity. Robotics capable of fully automating unloading tasks bring a new paradigm to the dock. High performance and ﬂexibility push unloading from a labor-heavy, manual chore to an automated, reﬁned process. High-performing DC workers can take more desirable positions, with relief from unpleasant work conditions. Management gets to replace uncertainty and stafﬁng challenges with a reliable, automated process, with data to fuel continuous improvement.
