Autonomous order fulfillment robot

Autonomous robots outperform any other collaborative robot solution used in logistics fulfillment

For example, they can operate faster in human-free work spaces and thus reach higher throughput than collaborative solutions at a lower operating cost. Also, by operating in a ‘sterile’ environment, there’s no need to go through the full level of functional safety and collaborative robotic regulations, which is more costly and difficult to obtain.

This unique cloud-based robotic solution features the stepIM integrated motors and the softMC compact multi axis motion controller inside!

Caja robotics offers a flexible solution based on two robot models, that allow a warehouse to start small, and see if performance improves or not. Clients also get access to a simulation that predicts what would happen when solutions are employed. Customers of Caja report a 50% increase in productivity after they installed the system.

 

Autonomous robots increase warehouse productivity:

Between 90%-95% of warehouse labor is done by humans. At the moment, US alone needs a million and a half pickers. Pandemics make this difficult job even harder, as workers might infect one another, damaging productivity even further. Also human error, such as dropping packages or delivering the wrong parcel to the dispatch center, costs warehouses time and money.

 

Autonomous robots in comparison to collaborative Robots:

Autonomous robots outperform any other collaborative robot solution used in logistics fulfillment. For example, they can operate faster in human-free work spaces and thus reach higher throughput than collaborative solutions at a lower operating cost. Also, by operating in a ‘sterile’ environment, there’s no need to go through the full level of functional safety and collaborative robotic regulations, which is more costly and difficult to obtain.

 

Caja’s unique robotic fulfillment solution features a compact and decentralized motion architecture, with the stepIM integrated motors and the softMC multi axis motion controller.

The stepIM integrated stepper motors are being used in all service axes- lift and theta, providing a reliable and robust solution that is high performant and cost effective.

The stepIMs use CANopen fieldbus to communicate with the Servotronix softMC motion controller.

    1. CANopen CIA402
    2. stepIM used as a servo motor: high performance at a lower cost
    3. Low voltage 24/48V operation
    4. Eliminated the need for gearbox as the integrated stepper motors have a high torque – low speed ratio
