Today’s warehouse operations are caught between soaring demand and critical labor shortages. They desperately need to increase throughput and improve efficiency—and the Fetch fulfillment solution from Zebra can be the workforce multiplier they’ve been looking for.
Collaborative picking with AMRs has never been more flexible – with multiple screen options, highly adjustable shelves, and other accessories such as garment rods, FlexShelf offers the most storage combinations for transporting picked orders safely and efficiently.
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.
Part of the new Fetch Fulfillment Solution, RollerTop Guide adds even more functionality to the original 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 often replace long stretches of fixed conveyor, saving precious warehouse space for storage or value-added operations.
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 our 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.
How it Works
By integrating your WMS or WES with the Fetch Cloud Robotics Platform, you can aggregate pick data across numerous orders and enable collaborative picking for faster fulfillment. The system determines the best-next-move for each human associate and mobile robot based on their real-time location, current tasks, and task priority. Order, batch, and case picking optimized workflows can be further enhanced using vision, voice, or handheld devices.
Because the integrated system is dynamic and intelligent, new rush orders can take precedence over standard orders in the pick queue, and be instantly updated to the combined human and robot workforce. The system will identify the nearest available associate and robot to fulfill the order in the most efficient path possible
