Prime Robotics Launches the AutoShelf
Denver, CO, March 9, 2022—Prime Robotics, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent end-to-end automation solutions for warehouse, distribution, and fulfillment facilities, announced at the MODEX Convention the launch AutoShelf(TM), a revolutionary warehouse robotics platform. The AutoShelf overcomes the inherent compromises of other Autonomous Mobile Robotics (AMR) systems with a fully patented design that integrates the robot into every shelf.
The smart AutoShelf system creates previously impossible efficiencies in your supply chain with the fastest possible pick speeds, improved inventory accuracy, and a short learning curve to get your system quickly paying you back. The system eliminates the time that traditional AMRs systems spend picking up and moving shelves–all shelves move and bring products to the pick stations, eliminating human error.
While goods-to-person AMRs require less human travel than manual order picking because the worker stays in one place while robots bring inventory, most AMR systems are constrained by the number of robots they have to transport dumb shelves. AutoShelf system eliminates the wasted time of robots traveling, carrying, lifting, and dropping–when a shelf is needed, the shelf drives itself to the destination.
“The AutoShelf turns the warehouse robotics paradigm on its head by making every shelf a robot that has intelligence,” says Eric Rongley, CEO and founder of Prime Robotics. “Since every shelf can move and interact directly with workers, there’s never any wasted time waiting for the next shelf.”
“While the first version of the AutoShelf will be highly productive, the revolutionary design provides a platform that can be extended and take on capabilities no other warehouse robotics system can accomplish,” adds Rongley. Each AutoShelf features lights directly integrated into shelf slots to provide pick-to-light functionality. The AutoShelf Dispatch System adds another layer of intelligence by optimizing item/shelf locations, reducing the movements the robots need to perform, and shortening the distance on the fastest-moving items.
“The AutoShelf will change how inventory is handled,” says Rongley. “Prime Robotics has created a new robotics platform and patented all aspects of the warehouse and other use cases. Large customers can deploy the system with confidence that not only do they have the most efficient warehouse robot system, but that the intellectual property of the robot is clean.”
In addition to launching the AutoShelf at the MODEX trade show, Prime Robotics will take orders for the warehousing and logistics industries. The AutoShelf will continue its bold mission of creating previously impossible efficiencies.
