Businesses are changing and more are becoming multi-channel with various services offered like same-day-delivery or store pick-up. Companies are looking to improve efficiency and reduce the order-to-delivery time. Traditional rigid warehouse automation has limitations and flexible automation is the choice to gain a competitive advantage.

Autonomous mobile robots can provide solutions that are flexible and scalable, improve safety in your operation, and are able to adapt to your business as you adapt to your markets.

Operations where Automation is used:

  • Picking
  • Replenishment
  • Putaway
  • Redundant Path Travel
  • Point to Point Transportation

AMR’s (Autonomous Mobile Robots) can be deployed to relieve the burden of material movement so your workforce can focus on higher value activities. Increase your site’s productivity without increasing your footprint or your workforce.

  • Overcome Labor Shortages
  • Recover Wasted Floor Space
  • Increase throughput and picking efficiencies
  • Interface with your existing WMS / Order Fulfillment software or work independently
  • Standardize Across All Facilities
  • Get Real-Time Insights Anywhere

Unlike AGV’s, AMR’s have the ability to autonomously renavigate around obstacles. Hy-Tek is the industry leader that can help you navigate the automation waters. If you’re looking for a safe, flexible and efficient solution to start providing immediate results, we’re ready to help! Whether it is staffing issues, increased shipping volume or flexibility challenges in your warehouse we can work with you to find the right robotic solution.

FETCH ROBOTICS

On-Demand Automation is the signature of Fetch Robotics. The Fetch Cloud Robotics Platform provides the only Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) solution that deploys in hours vs. days or weeks and addresses multiple applications – including material handling and data collection – with a common, unified, cloud-based platform. They offer turnkey and extensible systems that safely find, track, and move anything from parts to pallets in warehouses, factories, and distribution centers. Fetch solutions have the unique ability to be implemented with or without warehouse management system (WMS) software integration. This allows for a shorter implementation time, which means getting you a faster ROI.

Whether you are looking for a small robot to handle totes or a large robot which can handle full pallets, Fetch Robotics offers a solution for you. With the extensive product line available and even more products on the horizon, solutions specifically tailored to your facility needs can be offered.

OTTO MOTORS

The OTTO Inventory Movement Platform comes with everything you need to redefine how inventory is transported inside your facility. OTTO’s self-driving vehicles were designed from scratch to move inventory. They use sensors and advanced software to detect obstacles, like workers or forklifts, then drives around them. The vehicles utilize state-of-the art lithium battery packs to deliver industry-leading performance and an opportunity charge methodology ensuring maximum utilization.

Complete with a family of standard attachments that allow OTTO to quickly interface with conveyors, racks, carts, etc. to facilitate picking up and dropping off inventory. An optional tablet interface that allows workers to easily request deliveries and a workstation editor gives you complete control to set up the workflows you need. The Fleet Manager is a centralized control system to manage and optimize the day-to-day operation of your fleet and provide you with real-time monitoring, remote back-ups, and cloud access.

The OTTO Fleet Manager is simple to install into your existing environment so you can focus on material handling, not IT.
