According to Analyst firm Aberdeen Research, 82% of companies have experienced unplanned downtime over the past three years. Some lineside replenishment workflows rely on employees moving carts of materials throughout your facility to and from the line, which is an unproductive use of time that can result in line stoppage if materials are delivered late. Forklifts are also used for lineside delivery, which introduces a significant safety risk, requires specialized training and pay for forklift drivers, and does not solve the issue of materials arriving late to a line and causing an unplanned downtime.
Leave the manual material movement to our Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs). These robots can bring carts or pallets of goods to the line without any of your workers leaving their stations and without any changes to your facility. With our integrations to systems such as a MES, AMRs can become a connected element of your manufacturing processes and automatically bring goods to your lines. AMRs can also be tasked from network connected buttons, handheld scanners, sensors, and mobile devices to bring a cart, flow rack or pallet of materials directly to the line from raw materials storage. If there is an empty cart, the AMR can also return that to the restocking stations for future replenishment requests
FetchCore is our cloud-based application for deploying, operating, and optimizing our entire portfolio of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) for material handling automation and data collection.
Monitor your entire AMR fleet across multiple warehouse and manufacturing environments, customize and schedule robot tasks, and gain actionable insights all within an app that runs on any web device with a compatible browser. With FetchCore, robots can begin operating in just hours – not days, weeks, or months.
