IntraLogisteX 2020 exhibitor and global AMR supplier Geek+ has announced the launch of a new large-size parcel-sorting robot.
The S100C AMR can support unit sortation, parcel sortation, and bins transportation, making it applicable to a number of industry scenarios, from 3PLs and distribution centres to cross-docking facilities and airports.
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/s.
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, the mechanical structure and load-bearing components of S100C allows for handling of packages weighing 100kg or more.
Kai Liu, co-founder and vice president of picking and smart warehouses, 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.”
Using Geek+’s AI-driven AMR technology, the sorting system powering S100C enables deployment in less than two weeks. According to the company, the flexibility of the system leads to lower implementation costs and allows businesses to quickly scale operations by adjusting the number of robots.
What’s more, the robot can be integrated with existing infrastructure and collaborate with other robots for automated warehouse operations. S100C can also be customised to support RFID technology or bar code scanning for more efficient sortation.
