ACR solutions optimize the warehouse picking process, which allows companies to reduce costs significantly while increasing warehouse efficiency.

Automated Case-Handling Mobile Robots (ACRs) take part in the goods-to-person smart automation solutions that tackle today’s warehousing challenges.  ACRs, a specific type of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), employ state-of-the-art sensors and machine learning to deftly maneuver through warehouse and distribution centers to safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively transport materials and/or cases throughout the facility.

From a smart perspective, it encompasses a robust software platform integrating a complete WMS system, robot control system, and equipment scheduling system on an intelligent algorithmic platform. In terms of adaptability, it can manage cartons, cases, and totes of different dimensions. It’s tailored to fulfill the specific warehouse automation needs of each customer. Lastly, it’s highly efficient, enabling swift deployment within six weeks of the robot’s arrival on-site.

Here are the top reasons why we’re pumped about AMRs:

Accuracy and Speed

ACRs can perform tasks with high precision and consistency, minimizing errors that can occur due to human fatigue or distraction. They operate 24/7 with no need for breaks or rest, ensuring continuous operation and maximizing productivity.  The fact that ACRs are automated reduces the need for human intervention in routine operations and reduces the time and effort required to complete tasks.  And most enticing, they are fast!  Allowing for quicker processing of cases and reduced cycle times with huge ROI.

By automating repetitive and low-value tasks, autonomous robots free up humans to focus on more complex and value-added activities. This improved allocation of human resources enhances overall efficiency, productivity, and morale.

Scalability and Flexibility

As your business capitalizes on these new efficiencies, you’ll find autonomous case handling robots can be easily scaled up or down to meet changing demand without requiring significant additional infrastructure or resource requirements.  Easy software integration also makes flexibility possible. We are literally able to integrate any way to fit our customer’s requirements perfectly – while planning for growth. This scalability ensures that efficiency gains can be maintained even if workloads fluctuate.

And as opposed to some other automation technologies, autonomous case handling robots not only can be installed and become fully operational very quickly, but they also can be easily removed and implemented at another facility if needed.

AI and Adaptability

Through advanced sensors and AI algorithms that enable them to adapt to changing environments and circumstances, ACRs can collect and process large amounts of data in real-time, enabling them to make informed decisions and self-optimize operations. This data-driven approach helps improve efficiency by identifying bottlenecks, optimizing workflows, and making continuous improvements over time.

And as an additional bonus, Autonomous Case-Handling Robots help to optimize your storage density, allowing greater storage heights and freeing up floor square footage. (And, of course, more square footage equals more room to grow without having to acquire more space.)

Achieve Superior Results

ACRs empower you to achieve superior results — faster, more efficiently, and at a lower cost. Specifically, operational efficiency sees a remarkable increase of 300% to 400%. Storage density can soar by 230% or more. Customers have achieved virtually perfect picking accuracy, reaching 100%. And addresses the pressing issue of labor shortages, which has become increasingly significant in recent years. Achieving all these objectives not only ensures a return on investment (ROI) but also achieves it promptly.
