Mobile Robotics

Supplied in collaboration with Fetch Robotics, autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are capable of transporting loads up to 1,500 kilograms. Superior vision and mapping technologies enable Fetch mobile robots to perceive and navigate warehouse and factory environments. They’re intelligent enough to dynamically reroute around obstacles without operator intervention, while recognizing and avoiding everything from people to fork truck tines.

Mobile robots can be inserted into your operation with little or no new infrastructure, requiring only a few hours to learn their surroundings. Multiple top-mounted attachments enable the robots to perform various applications, including:

  • Pallet conveyance — AMRs capable of transporting loads of up to 1,500 kg can be loaded or unloaded directly with a forklift or work independently via pickup and delivery (PND) stations.
  • Returns processing — By automating the movement of rolling carts, AMRs streamline reverse logistics processes, eliminating errors and freeing up scarce workers for more value-added tasks. 
  • Automated machine tending — AMRs with roller tops can be used to transport parts and goods between automated manufacturing equipment, replenish automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), or provide a flexible “bridge” between different conveyor systems.

For even greater accuracy, many AMRs can be combined with order-picking technologies like hand scanners or voice systems. For maximum automated efficiencies, AMRs can be integrated with the Momentum warehouse execution system (WES) to fully orchestrate critical warehouse processes, reduce bottlenecks, and optimize workflows.

How your operation benefits 

  • Cloud robotics platform enables on-demand automation within the warehouse
  • 100, 500 and 1,500 kg payload robot models can autonomously transport virtually any item, from parts to pallets
  • Deploy in hours with minimal infrastructural changes
  • Available interfaces can integrate to a variety of external systems, from hand scanners to programmable logic controllers (PLCs) to warehouse management systems (WMS), Momentum WES and warehouse control systems (WCS)
  • The broadest range of AMRs in the industry, available for applications such as piece/case/pallet picking, order consolidation and kitting, replenishment and cross-docking
