Fetch Robotics has released the PalletTransport1500, an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) that supports cross-docking, returns and case-picking workflows for contactless pallet transport in distribution centres.
The PalletTransport1500 will use Honeywell Intelligrated’s Momentum warehouse execution system software, known as Momentum WES, to safely move pallets and other large payloads up to 1136 kg (2504 lbs).
Honeywell’s Intelligrated’s Pallet Conveyance solution, powered by Momentum WES and the PalletTransport1500, is designed to support workflows for e-commerce fulﬁllment, store replenishment and wholesale distribution centre operations.
The PalletTransport1500 consists of the Fetch Freight1500 AMR with an integrated lift and a pick-up and delivery station, and conforms with the new ANSI/RIA R15.08 standard for autonomous mobile robots.
When combined with Momentum WES, which is designed to address e-commerce fulfillment challenges by orchestrating nearly every aspect of automated warehouse execution, the PalletTransport1500 can manage long-haul material transport without any need for human involvement.
