The Elimination Tide of Physical Stores: Rise of E-commerce

As retailers forage for new ways to cope, many have decided to close down physical stores and focus on restructuring their business, either through expansion of online retail or introduction of novel business concepts.

Zebra To Acquire Fetch Robotics - Our Analysis

On July 1st Zebra Technologies announced that it would be acquiring Fetch Robotics. It will be paying $290 million to acquire the 95% of the company that it does not already own, in a deal that values Fetch Robotics at $305 million.

Four Ways to Improve Your Logistics Applications

Logistics is a constant race to deliver at fast speeds while maintaining a standard of impeccable accuracy at the lowest possible cost. The rise of intense competition makes next-generation applications essential for becoming a trendsetter in this industry.

5 MIR1000 Robots Automates the Internal Transportation of Heavy Loads at Florisa

Five autonomous mobile robots (AMR) MiR1000 have improved productivity, safety and eliminated storage problems within the Florisa plant, a company that operates in the textile segment, with production focused on the dyeing of natural and artificial fibers.

As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.

The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.

Supplychainbrain: Out With Conveyors, in With Autonomous Mobile Robots

You can't totally count conveyors out, because they'll always have a place. But the truth is, robots are here, and AMRs are changing warehouse operations. While conveyors are effective, their capabilities are also limited.

AMR Manufacturer, Integrator, and Owner: What Are Your Safety Responsibilities?

The challenge for many companies is how to consistently maintain a safe workplace without creating barriers to productivity or innovation. Enter autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

AGV Robotization: The Solution

Businesses which have invested in robotics quickly realize the impact of increased productivity and continue investing. There is no "turn back syndrome" for these solutions; the increases in competitiveness and quality push businesses to adopt a continuous robotics policy.

3 Trends in Robotics Energy Consumption

Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.

How Commercial Robotics Will Power the Logistics Industry in 2021

Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.

Next-Generation Mobile Robots Fleet Management

By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.

A MiR500 Robot Lowers Transport Costs at Schneider Electric

The Schneider Electric Polska plant deals with the production of low voltage apparatus switches and accessories for these products. They have implemented an autonomous mobile robot MiR500 that transports finished products between the production line and the warehouse.

3PL's New Rack Supported Work Platforms Optimized for Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs)

While AMRs can be deployed in existing warehouse and distribution centers, some considerations should be considered to ensure they navigate and perform at their peak. Specifically, the durability and condition of the flooring upon which they travel.

How Top Modules Make AMRs Possible

An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.

Next-Generation Industrial Robotic Capabilities Advanced by Artificial Intelligence

As barriers between human activities and robotic capabilities diminish - moving beyond the fenced activities of last-generation industrial robots - new collaboration and workflow models are bringing humans and robots together in industry.
