Innovation : Flexytote – goods to man robot for the transport of bins
The French designer and manufacturer of robotic solutions is expanding its range with a new solution dedicated to multi-bin transfer in warehouse.
The French start-up Scallog, specialized in goods to man robots, is expanding its offer for automated order preparation with the arrival of the new Flexytote. This allows the automation of transfer, loading and unloading of bins and boxes during multi-order preparations.
In concrete terms, Scallog’s robots move bins or boxes on two or three levels to the picking stations, place them on the preparation apiaries, then collect them once the orders have been completed by the operators to route them to the packing area. What replace the handling activities carried out in conveyors or trolleys by a robotic alternative.
Designed to be flexible, Flexytote can be easily integrated into any type of warehouse, the robot moving along an optical marking on the ground that is easy to install. Able to move up to 250 kg in carrying capacity, the solution offers a ROI of less than 18 months according to Scallog. A first deployment is already underway with a client of the start-up.
