Geek+ has launched the S100C, a large-size parcel sorting robot, as it expands its range of sortation AMRs.
The S100C can support unit sortation, parcel sortation and bins transportation making it applicable to many industry scenarios, from 3PLs and distribution centres to cross-docking facilities and airports.
Geek +, which can be found at IntraLogisteX 2020 on stand 430 and is sponsor of the Supply Chain Excellence Awards 2020, said the unit is equipped with an independent rotating control chassis and collision avoidance, S100C can operate narrow spaces, saving 30% of the sortation area.
High-speed control belts allow the robot to process two items in one go or deliver one large item at a speed of 2m per second. Geek + said that if a package is positioned too close to the edge of the control belt, the robot will slow down and adjust the position of the package to ensure accuracy and safety.
Additionally, Geek + said the mechanical structure and load-bearing components of S100C allows for seamless handling of packages weighing 100 kg or more, reducing labor-intensive operations and associated risks and costs.
Kai Liu, co-founder and vice-president, picking and smart warehouse, at Geek+, said: “With S100C, companies will be able to ensure a safer working environment, while meeting the needs for accuracy and more effective handling larger order volumes. The robot is also a good economic choice since the system powering S100C allows easy deployment and quick scaling of operations.”
Built on AI-driven AMR technology, Geek + said the sorting system powering S100C would enable quick deployment in less than two weeks and the robot can be easily integrated with existing infrastructure and collaborate with other robots.
It also said that the system can be customised to support RFID technology or bar code scanning.
