SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 5, 2018 – Fetch Robotics, the pioneer in on-demand automation, today announced the expansion of its VirtualConveyor family of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) with the addition of CartConnect and RollerTop robots for the most flexible and broad range of workflows for material handling and transport. Through the FetchCore Cloud Robotics Platform for On-Demand Automation, mixed fleets of VirtualConveyor robots uniquely complement any warehouse optimization strategy for mixed inventory and workflow environments associated with the largest 3PLs, retailers, and manufacturers in the world. Both CartConnect and RollerTop solutions can be deployed in hours without any changes to existing facility or IT infrastructure. CartConnect, RollerTop and the complete line of VirtualConveyor solutions will be shown for the first time at MODEX 2018 at booth #B4835.
CartConnect and RollerTop
VirtualConveyor CartConnect solutions allow the new AMRs to pick up, transport and drop off delivery warehouse carts to any warehouse or manufacturing location. CartConnect robots can then immediately move on to their next cart delivery task. This maximizes productivity gains out of Fetch Robotics AMR systems in workflows where transported material cannot be immediately loaded or unloaded.
VirtualConveyor RollerTop robots have seamlessly integrated active conveyor modules that, in combination with FetchCore’s new precision alignment feature, allow RollerTop robots to dependably hand off or receive material from fixed conveyance. With the simple integration of FetchLink controllers with facility conveyors, customers can very quickly deploy AMR to conveyor workflows that require no human interaction.
Both CartConnect and RollerTop are managed through FetchCore, the company’s cloud robotics platform. FetchCore is unified cloud-based software for deploying, operating, monitoring, and optimizing Fetch Robotics’ AMRs across warehouse and manufacturing environments. With a simple click and drag interface, FetchCore allows warehouse managers to create and schedule workflows in minutes, and to quickly create or modify mobile robot tasks and schedules to compliment any warehouse optimization strategy.
