Invar Group has partnered with robotic systems manufacturer Hai Robotics, to include its autonomous case-handling robotics, (ACR), systems, as part of its selection of solutions for its customers in the UK, Europe, and the United States.
Hai Robotics manufactures of ACRs used in order picking, put-away and dispatch operations, and Invar Group services customers in sectors such as, e-commerce, retail, pharmaceuticals, FMCG, and manufacturing.
Hai Robotics has developed a range of mobile robots with the ability to carry cartons, as well as individual totes, offering the capability to bring multiple cases to pickers or conveyors in one movement.
The autonomous order-picking robots can pick and place totes or cartons on shelves up to 7m high and are able to carry up to eight loads at a time, offering a continuous feed for goods-to-person picking stations.
The ‘HAIPICK’ solution helps to transform the performance of a warehouse, increasing storage density by 80–130% and improving operational efficiency by more than 300% compared with a manual process.
Craig Whitehouse, Managing Director of Invar Integration said: “Robotics have transformed automation in the warehouse. Their flexibility, scalability, and low-Capex appeal offers huge advantages over fixed solutions. HAI ROBOTICS has a fantastic range of intelligent ACRs, well suited to the varied demands of fulfilment applications.”
Kane Luo, Vice President of sales for HAI ROBOTICS added: “The partnership will be able to offer warehouse operators a unique and innovative solution that delivers higher fulfilment volumes, at lower operation costs and with better distribution efficiency.”
