The trend of investment in and acquisition of mobile robotic companies seeking to automate the movement of goods within warehouses, fulfillment centers, and manufacturing facilities is still rising. Only in recent months, IDTechEx has seen three notable activities.
The profitable companies of the future will be those that can adapt to the change in sourcing, production and distribution that are happening today, and are flexible enough to take advantage of new technologies.
The warehouse robotics have offered a more efficient, reliable, and accurate way of handling demand and supply equation by letting robots perform functions such as pick-place, packaging, transportation, and palletizing.
The sophisticated integration of perception sensors, autonomous navigation, manipulation, and artificial intelligence in Swift warehouse robots enables maximum picking productivity across single pick, trays, and totes.
Before selecting a picking technique for your operation, evaluate your current inventory situation, workforce, technology, infrastructure and warehouse layout. Once you assess all of these factors, you can confidently determine a picking methodology
The boxes used in the video weigh about 5 Kg (11 lbs), but the robot is designed to handle boxes up to (15 Kg) (33 lb). This version of Handle works with pallets that are 1.2 m deep and 1.7 m tall (48 inches deep and 68 inches tall).
"The robot saves at least five hours in transport time a week, and the working day is quieter and calmer," Broberg said. "I already take 15,000 to 17,000 steps a day in my job, so I definitely don't miss the walk to the pallet stacker."
The latest buzz grabbing all the light is the introduction of a fully automated mobile robot named The Swift brought forth by IAM Robotics, one of the leading giants in mobile robotics software market.
Vecna Robotics, a leader in intelligent, next-generation, robotic material handling autonomous ground vehicles (AGVs), was awarded first place in the DHL & Dell Robotics Mobile Picking Challenge 2017. The event was held last week at the DHL Innovation Center in Troisdorf, Ge
My view is that companies (1) start with a problem that is suited to be solved by a robotic solution, then (2) design and build a robot that solves that problem and finally (3) build a business model that makes the robot the best economic solution to the problem.
