Introducing the FlexShelf line of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), part of a new end-to-end fulfillment solution brought to you by Zebra Technologies and Fetch Robotics, the pioneers of on-demand warehouse automation. Increase productivity up to 3 times by augmenting workers with robots that are 50% faster and carry larger and heavier payloads than the competition. Ensure the highest levels of accuracy and safety as pickers move faster than ever before while leveraging unique pick-to-light and put-to-side capabilities. Deploy an intelligent automation solution, powered by an open architecture, that leverages your existing systems and does not require modifications to your facilities.

Piece picking remains at the core of many distribution and fulfillment operations, but with large providers like Amazon and Walmart driving the need to ship goods quickly, it is more important than ever to optimize your picker’s time to get goods out the door fast. Regardless of if you have optimized your pick path and/or the picking method, you use with wave picking, zone picking, or batch picking, issues like chronic labor shortages and insufficient space for inventory continue to plague the fulfillment industry. Using cloud-based AMRs and integrations with leading WMS and WES providers, you can optimize your piece-picking workflows by orchestrating humans and robots using vision, voice, or handheld devices. This maximizes UPH / LPH, reduces congestion in aisles, and greatly decreases order turnaround time.

The FlexShelf line consists of 3 different models; FlexShelf, FlexShelf Guide, and FlexShelf Guide Dual. FlexShelf integrates with your existing optimization layer so equipped workers can continue to use headsets, HUDs, and scanners to perform picks. Your WMS / WES and FetchCore work together to manage to pick waves for both humans and robots.  FlexShelf Guide adds an integrated touchscreen and a built-in scanner for processing picks directly onto the robot. The single screen directs associates to the correct SKU and bin location while LED lighting along the robot uprights helps guide associates on where to place picked items.  For the ultimate in pick efficiency in high-volume, high-velocity fulfillment centers, FlexShelf Guide Dual provides 2 touchscreens to enable simultaneous directed picking on both sides of the robot. The robot can rotate in place to present available shelving on the opposite side of the robot so a picker can minimize movement.

RollerTop Guide

Batch Picking Cart

Part of the new Fetch Fulfillment Solution, the RollerTop Guide is a purpose-built batch or wholesale picking solution based on the original, tried, and tested RollerTop AMR system.

RollerTop Guide is designed to maximize productivity in picking operations that utilize conveyors, sortation, and other mechanized automation as part of the workflow. To enhance worker and robot collaboration, RollerTop Guide comes equipped with an adjustable top module featuring an integrated touchscreen, built-in barcode scanner, and brand-new smart LEDs that enable put-to-light functionality.

Customers using the RollerTop AMR series can replace long stretches of fixed conveyors, reclaiming up to 13% of precious warehouse space, increasing the life span of a facility by up to 5 years, and often reducing cycle time in the process.

Through WMS / WES integration, associates can achieve higher pick rates without needing to manually move totes and bins to the next stage of order processing. RollerTop Guide will direct the associate on which items to pick, autonomously transport the load to a powered or non-powered conveyor, and automatically discharge the tote. RollerTop Guide then returns to the pick module for its next pick, as directed by the WMS or WES.

HMIShelf

Autonomous Mobile Transport

HMIShelf provides autonomous transport in virtually any facility. Deploys in just hours and carries a wide range of bins, totes, and packages with its fully configurable and customizable shelving system. Manual movement with goods for pickers or parts for manufacturing line technicians is unproductive and unfulfilling work. In many warehouses, pickers can spend over 50% of their time moving items throughout the environment instead of staying in their zones. With the HMIShelf, pickers and line technicians can leave the heavy lifting to the robot while they continue with tasks best suited to humans. This AMR has a fully customizable touchscreen that is easy for associates to learn and carries a wide range of bins, totes, and packages with its fully configurable and customizable shelving system.

CartConnect100

The Industry’s First Rolling Cart AMR Solution

Automated material handling has never been so simple. With the CartConnect100 you can use any web-enabled or integrated device (like Zebra scanners) to execute a workflow or request a pick-up and select a drop-off location. The nearest CartConnect robot will then automatically move to the pick-up area, dock with the loaded FetchCart with no human intervention, and autonomously transport it to the selected drop-off area. Upon arrival, CartConnect automatically detaches from the FetchCart and is ready for the next task, keeping your employees productive in their zones.

Increase Accuracy

Accuracy is essential to ensure consumer safety and satisfaction, as well as inventory and materials management. Using the power of voice, scanning, and visual cues, workers can perform hands-free tasks and dramatically increase speed, without sacrificing accuracy. Enable workers to utilize spoken instructions and have additional input modes to simplify and increase task completion speed and accuracy.

Streamline the Process

Simplify the entire picking process and increase productivity with mobile devices – from finding the best route to an item to on-the-spot verification, and instantly updating product inventory.

Navigate Faster

Locate inventory more quickly through voice-directed picking. Experienced workers know instantly if inventory has been moved and seasonal workers get up and running faster with less of a learning curve. Multi-modal speech-directed wearable solutions combine the benefits of industry accuracy rates of up to 99.8% delivered by voice-directed picking with simple hands-free scanning to shave seconds off the validation of each transaction.
