April 5, 2018 – Fetch Robotics announced the expansion of its VirtualConveyor family of Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) with the addition of CartConnect and RollerTop robots for the range of workflows for material handling and transport. Through the FetchCore Cloud Robotics Platform, mixed fleets of VirtualConveyor robots are designed to complement any warehouse optimization strategy for mixed inventory and workflow environments. CartConnect, RollerTop and the complete line of VirtualConveyor solutions will be shown for the first time at MODEX 2018 at booth #B4835. VirtualConveyor CartConnect solutions allow the AMRs to pick up, transport and drop off delivery warehouse carts to any warehouse or manufacturing location. CartConnect robots can then immediately move on to their next cart delivery task. VirtualConveyor RollerTop robots have integrated active conveyor modules that, in combination with FetchCore’s precision alignment feature, allow RollerTop robots to hand off or receive material from fixed conveyance. With the integration of FetchLink controllers with facility conveyors, customers can deploy AMR to conveyor workflows that require no human interaction. Both CartConnect and RollerTop solutions can be deployed in hours without any changes to existing facility or IT infrastructure. Both CartConnect and RollerTop are managed through FetchCore, the company’s cloud robotics platform. FetchCore is unified cloud-based software for deploying, operating, monitoring, and optimizing Fetch Robotics’ AMRs across warehouse and manufacturing environments. With a click and drag interface, FetchCore allows warehouse managers to create and schedule workflows in minutes, and to create or modify mobile robot tasks and schedules to compliment any warehouse optimization strategy.
