Conveyor systems have dramatically increased industrial efficiency for years; however, these fixed assets are hard to adapt to today’s ever-changing material transport requirements. The Fetch RollerTop solution brings adaptability and increases automation in conveyor driven environments. With adjustable height and autonomous navigation, the RollerTops can pilot their way to conveyor and/or ASRS ends to load and unload totes and bins, so your employees can work on tasks that need human decision making instead of loading and unloading manually.
FetchCore has native support for the SICK TDC Gateway, which enables coordination of conveyor-to-conveyor handoffs.
The optional SICK TDC (sold separately) is a networked industrial I/O device that serves as a bridge between the Fetch Cloud Robotics Platform and other industrial equipment such as conveyors, doors, and air showers. Automate hand-offs between RollerTop robots and active powered conveyors by connecting a TDC to any conveyor controller.
Precision markers and our Precision Alignment feature in FetchCore guarantee repeatable millimeter-level precision for reliable conveyor-to-conveyor interactions.
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.
The SICK Telematic Data Collector (optional, sold separately) is a networked industrial I/O device that serves as a bridge between the FetchCore and other industrial equipment such as conveyors, doors, and air showers. Automate hand-offs between Fetch RollerTop robots and active powered conveyors by connecting a SICK TDC to any conveyor controller.
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.
The flexibility of the RollerTop AMR system makes it the ideal choice for both fulfillment and manufacturing applications. In 3PLs and e-commerce fulfillment centers, picking to tote for single item orders with automatic induction to sorting can increase pick rates significantly. For manufacturers, transporting raw materials, WIP, kits, and finished goods from assembly lines can be automated and streamlined.
