ForwardX Robotics has announced the Flex 60-T, a new AMR capable of moving carts and cage trollies up to 300kg to help with safety and efficiency for automated logistics operations.
Autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, are essentially complete robotic cells on wheels. They are usually fully autonomous and can navigate through warehouses without the need for worker intervention. Generally used in logistics-type operations, they are often the workhorses in warehouse and shipping locations, taking stored product and bringing it to sorting stations, or other related tasks in the area of product movement.
ForwardX Robotics is a global leader in AMRs with vision-based technology. They have recently been developing their latest addition to their AMR lineup: the Flex 60-T. The Flex 60-T features a state-of-the-art docking and towing system, meant to help with warehouse product and material movement. The flexible system can be used in many different industrial settings.
