Transporting Kit Carts to Production Lines
Carts are so widely used in production and warehouse logistics that it is easy to forget how repetitive and expensive it is when your staff handle them, all over your facility.
Our Autonomous Towing Robots (ATR) dock and tow nearly any cart with minimal effort. It does not matter how wide, long or tall a cart is. ATRs safely transport carts across facilities using robust mechatronics and navigation, all managed at the application level by our state-of-art multi-robot management software.
How it works
ATRs can pick up carts from an internal warehouse or a goods-to-person system and transfer them to various locations in your facility. Our ATRs adapt to your existing carts and ID them via bar codes or other labels. With a traffic plan defined, ATRs can receive commands from operators or from a WMS/MES for 100% autonomous cart handling.
A team of ATRs can be tasked to transfer carts that are staged for pickup. Carts can be picked up based on a label in a designated area. ATRs can pick up the first cart they see or in a specific order based on application requirements.
Drop off at Assembly Lines
ATRs will tow carts and drop them off to target locations on the assembly line at specified times. Carts can even be parked into positions depending on space constraints. Assembly line staff can be notified by audio or visual cues whenever a cart is delivered.
Return of Empties
ATRs can be called by an operator or by the WMS to return empty carts to the staging area. Tailor your returns to your needs.
