Hai Robotics (“Hai”), manufacturer and provider of Autonomous Case-handling Robot (ACR) Systems, has announced the launch of the world’s first telescopic Grapple Hook ACR.
The HaiPick A42T-E2 and the HaiPick System 3 address customer concerns around increasing storage density and performance at a smaller warehouse footprint.
“Businesses nowadays are struggling to not only optimise their warehouse space, but also strike a balance between automation and leaving room for growth,” says Peter Guan, General Manager at Hai Robotics EMEA.
“We are thrilled with the launch of the HaiPick A42T-E2. This project encapsulates our commitment to providing intelligent, flexible and efficient solutions for the modern warehousing industry, while keeping in mind the growing and dynamic needs of this market on a global scale.”
Hai notes the telescopic Grapple Hook ACR can be integrated within HaiPick System 3, creating a nexus that facilitates higher performance while delivering enhanced storage density.
The HaiPick A42T-E2 – equipped with ChainPick technology – features a grappling hook with a picking speed of 2.7 seconds, quickly pulling totes one after another.
Such ChainPick technology is key to enabling up to five-deep tote storage capacity, allowing shorter picking and placing time to further streamline the goods-to-person workflow.
“HaiPick System 3 is a high-performance and agile solution that scales alongside businesses to better achieve instantaneous customer satisfaction,” adds Peter.
“Combined with the telescopic Grapple Hook ACR, warehouses will be able to achieve a level of performance efficiency and ROI at new heights in both B2B and B2C operations, such as within 3PL and apparel industries.”
Horizontal space in between totes can be slashed by 60 per cent, ensuring no space gap at the back and hence optimising existing warehouse storage space. Businesses are also offered tailored solutions to scale up or down, allowing them to maintain a competitive edge without compromising on financial agility, while still achieving cost-efficiency.
