Many case and pallet workflows can be automated within your facility to reduce and eliminate pallet jacks and forklifts for material transport. With CartConnect500, you can safely and autonomously transport case goods, totes, boxes, and smaller palletized loads up to 277kg (500 lbs) and set-up recurring workflows to reduce reliance on material handling machinery, and dedicate staff to focus on higher-value tasks.The CartConnect500 features a built-in lift module that picks up and drops off a FetchCart, a detachable, industrial-grade cart specifically designed for the CartConnect500. Unique markers located on the legs of the carts allows precision docking during pick-up and drop-off. You can also use any given cart that meets our specifications, allowing you to utilize any existing carts you may already have in your facility.
Collaborative, autonomous mobile robots were designed to work around people, and safety should not be compromised at the expense of efficiency.
All Fetch Robotics AMRs comes equipped with some of the most advanced safety features in the industry. 2D LiDAR scanners with 25m range enable mapping, localization, obstacle avoidance, as well as object detection. Multiple 3D depth cameras allow for superior robot vision to avoid both ground-based and overhanging dynamic obstacles, including forklifts, pallet jacks, and people.
When these sensors are combined with our onboard safety software, the result is the first industrial AMR systems, (inclusive of both the robot base and top module) that conform to both the newly released ANSI / RIA R15.08 safety standard for mobile robots as well as as CE mark requirements.
Get up and running in just hours and modify workflows on-demand with FetchCore, our enterprise cloud-based software. Track, analyze, and optimize robot performance with detailed metrics as well as annotate, update, and share your facility maps all from the same portal.
Included with the FetchCore software suite is the WorkFlow Builder app, which allows you to program complex robot tasks by dragging and dropping graphical blocks. These block represent a variety of robot actions, such as moving to multiple locations, picking up or dropping off carts, or initiating a workflow when a trigger is activated by the user. WorkFlow Builder allow you to create and change workflows from anywhere with just a few clicks, with no programming required.
Coordinating activity between your workforce, facility, and robots has never been easier. Start automating right out of the box and create customized tasks with FetchCore WorkFlow Builder. Quickly setup handheld devices such as scanners, tablets, and even smartphones to initiate robot workflows from anywhere in your facility.
Robots can also communicate with motor conveyor lines and ASRSs, as well as proximity, pressure, photo-electric and other various sensors to automatically initiate workflows.
For complete human and robot orchestration, FetchCore can be fully integrated with your WMS, WES, or MES to optimize your resources for maximum efficiency.
