Bespoke top modules and attachments
OTTO 750 can be customised to perform exactly the way you need it to with bespoke top modules and accessories, including a hydraulic lift and in-line conveyor. If your application requires something outside of the box, we will work with you to design a solution.
OTTO 1500 is the world’s most productive Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) with an unmatched payload capacity of 1,900kg. Move pallet-scale loads easily and safely in your warehouse, manufacturing facility or order fulfilment/ecommerce centre with OTTO 1500.
OTTO 1500 carries loads up to 1,900kg (4,190 Ibs) to increase material handling throughput by reducing time wasted walking or driving around a facility. Built to last, OTTO 1500 is durable enough to operate in tough environments at a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s (4.5 mph).
World-class material handling
OTTO 1500 is a powerhouse when it comes to transporting heavy payloads at speed. With an unbeaten ROI, you can rely on OTTO to maximise productivity in your warehouse, manufacturing facility or order fulfilment/ecommerce centre.
Safe and reliable
OTTO 1500 has clocked up over one million hours of operational runtime with a 100% safety rating from customers. Trust your most demanding material handling processes to OTTO 1500.
The original OTTO 1500 chassis was first introduced in 2015, giving the new OTTO 1500 nearly a decade of vehicle engineering and continuous improvement behind it.
Beacon derives position using a 360° Lidar scanner and a well-distributed reflective target constellation to consistently determine the location of any AMR within 4mm.
The key to the accuracy of the Beacon navigation system versus similar solutions on the market is its use of a ‘continuous wave’ beam of light. Beacon calculates its position using distance and bearing data from the first point it ‘sees’ each reflector until the last moment that reflector is in its ‘vision’ resulting in pinpoint accuracy.
Need to expand or change the layout of your facility? No problem! With Beacon, there is no need to employee a surveyor to undertake a lengthy and costly survey to create a new map. Beacon Self Survey can survey the facility and create the map within hours rather than weeks and can be used time and time again giving you complete flexibility and scalability.
Global order fulfilment and manufacturing operations have implemented our best-in-class solutions, including Pick-to-Light, put walls, Put-to-Light, picking carts and Pack-to-Light, to improve material handling speed, accuracy and cost efficiency.
Light-directed material handling systems can easily be integrated with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), Warehouse Execution & Control systems and other automation technologies to optimise processes and enhance existing operations. Our service ensures minimal disruption to our customers’ business processes, allowing them to quickly see the benefits automation can offer.
Pick-to-Light and Put-to-Light material sorting solutions improve accuracy, optimise productivity, maximise space and reduce costs for e-commerce order fulfilment, warehousing, distribution and production facilities.Advantages
Our Pick-to-Light solution for order fulfilment is the fastest operator-based technology for broken case quantity order picking and supports techniques such as team-based zone picking, cluster picking and more. The system is flexible and can be reconfigured to add or move light modules to accommodate new products or locations, for example.
Light-directed picking reduces errors in production by using lights to direct operators to the correct parts and quantities, in the correct order, as required for any given bill of materials (BOM).
Pick to Light technologies can be integrated with Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and Warehouse Execution & Control Systems to form a streamlined and optimised material handling process for countless industries and applications.
Our Put to Light, light-directed solution is a space-efficient way of optimising high-speed order sortation and batch picking operations. Using this reverse Pick to Light method, Put to Light illuminates every put location where an item is required to complete an order. Pickers can then distribute the items accordingly and extinguish the light when the task is completed, saving valuable time and maximising accuracy.
Put walls are an efficient way to sort bins, totes or shelves of batch-picked, mixed-SKU items into individual ecommerce and direct-to-consumer orders. Lights direct fast and precise order sortation and indicate when a pick is complete.
Put to Light Systems are configurable to suit businesses of any size, with space-efficient options for SMEs and comprehensive and bespoke solutions for those handling large numbers of SKUs. When integrated with complementary automation technologies such as Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and Warehouse Execution & Control system, Put to Light forms part of a holistic automation solution.Applications
