Efulfillment robot to preview at eDelivery show this week
25 April 2016
EiraTech, the Dublin-based developer of robotics solutions for the e-fulfilment sector, is previewing its latest robot EiraBot 4 at the eDelivery Exhibition 2016, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham 27-28 April.
The new look EiraBot – which requires no built infrastructure such as rails or conveyors to operate - will be available to view at the EiraTech Stand J93 for the duration of the show.
EiraBot 4 plays a central role in EiraTech’s automated robotics ‘goods to person’ solution for e-fulfilment operations of all sizes. The new robot now boasts increased load bearing capability of up to 350kg, while improvements in speed performance of up to 14km/hour have also been achieved.
The EiraBot relies for guidance on labels placed at strategic locations on the warehouse floor, and the EiraTech robot management system, communicated to it via a supplied WiFi link.
“The EiraTech system is designed to make the very best use of valuable personnel by eliminating the 70% of their time currently wasted walking and searching, by bringing the good to them in sequence, at a picking station,” says Alexey Tabolkin, CEO at EiraTech. “Lack of any built infrastructure associated with the EiraBot means a much shorter deployment time for merchants and 3PLs, but also allows for ease of expansion, contraction, and/or moving if necessary as your needs change. In fact, our business model can build in the periods of peaks and troughs of activity that many online enterprise experience if required.”
EiraTech is based at a development centre, including a simulated warehouse environment, in Dublin, Ireland.
