The autonomous mobile robot (AMR) segment is expected to reach $6.8 billion by 2025, according to Frost & Sullivan. The demand is generated from warehouse operators who need flexible automation systems and solutions that allow them to easily and intelligently move pallets at varying heights, weights, and sizes throughout a facility – something a counterbalanced fork truck robot can do.

The counterbalanced robot fork truck is the next-generation of pallet handling designed for seamless greater maneuverability versatility and intelligent operational efficiency for organizations. Our new counterbalanced fork truck robot allows customers to automate entire workflow processes from end-to-end. This is the future of automation and we’re excited to be the trailblazer.”

Maximum Throughput, Safety and Control for Warehousing and Distribution

Vecna Robotics’ Counterbalanced Truck robot is a fully integrated solution that works alongside human operators for improved productivity in dynamic industrial environments. The  Silverback Series includes dynamic obstacle avoidance to navigate warehouses easily and safely and is compliant with industry regulations such as the ANSI B56.5-2019.

The Autonomous Fork Truck delivers powerful applications that streamline materials handling and logistics operations, including:

  • Flexible Pallet Handling: Supports pallets of varying sizes and weights, including empty, partial, full, irregular, and double-stacked, with and without bottom boards
  • Warehouse Material Hauling: Moves pallets floor-to-floor in a facility, including delivering pallets to staging locations within aisles
  • Induction, Extraction, and Sortation: Hands off pallets to and from material handling equipment like conveyors, carts and wrappers
  • Opportunistic Material Handling: Transports empty pallets, dunnage, or trash on an as-needed basis

The new solution also leverages Vecna Robotics’ orchestration engine Pivotal™, which analyzes an organization’s operations and adjusts processes accordingly, ensuring every facet performs optimally in real-time. Pivotal shares information across people, robots and systems, and integrates with existing warehouse management solutions.
