AMRs Work Alongside Humans in the Warehouse to Enhance Productivity

We aren’t close to fully automated, or “dark” warehouses where robots do it all from start to finish with little-to-no human direction. Where we are right now is on the cusp of recognizing the power of humans working WITH robots to drive better, faster results. The opportunity to evolve the warehouse as a workplace is ripe. 

In this insightful webinar, industry experts will share key takeaways: 

  • Workflows > Robots: Discover how a holistic approach to automation can boost performance and satisfaction. 
  • Automation with Human Touch: Learn how automation can enhance, not replace, the human workforce, prioritizing safety, well-being, and efficiency. 
  • Human-in-the-Loop Technology: Explore technologies that troubleshoot, problem-solve, and optimize solutions using real-time data.

Warehouse picking operations everywhere are struggling with unprecedented increasing demand, meeting impossible speed expectations, and critical labor shortages for warehouse workers.

Fortunately, there are solutions that can help you keep up.

You’ve probably heard about the many benefits of using autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) in your warehouse. FlexShelf Fulfillment AMRs from Zebra and Barcodes can be a game-changer for your business and help your operations run even more efficiently. There are several advantages of incorporating FlexShelf AMR fulfillment solutions in your picking and fulfillment operations.

Three Reasons to Choose FlexShelf AMRs

FlexShelf AMRs feature an adaptable interface and can be seamlessly configured for a wide range of fulfillment operations, picking tasks, and automated material movement activities. Here are three advantages to choosing Zebra FlexShelf AMRs.

1. Increase Pick Productivity by Three Times

With FlexShelf AMRs, you can dramatically increase the number of orders your warehouse workers can process per hour. With FlexShelf, they’ll be able to pick three times as many products as they could before — without any additional training, support, or staff.

2. Reduce Cycle Times

FlexShelf gives you the ability to seamlessly switch between different products, allowing your workers to get orders out faster than ever before. You can also configure multiple lanes for each product type, which helps reduce wait time and increases customer satisfaction. FlexShelf also features unique pick-to-light and put-to-side capabilities that will significantly reduce cycle times.

3. Flexible Shelf Configurations

Imagine not needing a dedicated space for every product type. FlexShelf allows you to create customizable shelving that makes it easy to swap out products on the fly as necessary.  Shelves are adjustable with large dimensional capacity to accommodate a wide variety of totes, bins, and boxes of all sizes.

Perhaps the biggest advantage is that FlexShelf can leverage your existing systems and does not require any costly modifications or disruptions to your facilities.

Fetch Robotics AMRs Provide Powerful Solutions to Labor Challenges

Posted September 7, 2023

Companies nationwide are struggling to find qualified manufacturing labor, leaving many critical positions unfilled. The labor crisis isn’t going away any time soon. A recent study by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute revealed that the U.S. could see 2.1 million open manufacturing jobs by 2030, with a critical lack of skilled labor to staff those open roles. Manufacturers surveyed also reported that finding qualified talent is 36% harder than in 2018.

How can you prepare your business to remain productive and profitable during the worst labor crisis of our time?

Fetch Robotics are autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) from Zebra that seamlessly fill the labor gap, working alongside existing employees to improve efficiency, productivity, and accuracy.

Empower Your Employees with Fetch Robotics

Are you worried that your staff will think they’re about to be replaced by robots? Think again. Fetch robotics work alongside your team, empowering them with the tools they need to be more productive than ever.

Zebra AMRs can do the monotonous tasks your employees dread so they can focus on higher-level duties. Your employees will be overjoyed when they realize Fetch can push pallets for miles in the heat, so they don’t have to.

You can also delegate heavy lifting to the robots, protecting your employees from strain and possible injury. AMRs give your frontline team members a safer, more productive, and enjoyable job, reducing turnover and physical burnout while increasing employee satisfaction.

Fetch Robotics Means Improved Productivity

Zebra’s Fetch Robotics can deliver three times more productivity to your manufacturing plant by automating material movement. 

AMRS can move inbound goods, pick orders, and recycle, allowing workers to stay in their zone instead of wasting time walking back and forth carrying inventory around the warehouse.

Imagine how focused, productive, and less physically exhausted these workers will be. They’ll produce, pick, pack, and put away more items than ever before without the physical burnout that can result in reduced efficiency. You and your team will be amazed by how much more productive they are in tandem with AMRs.

When Can the Robots Start?

You might be surprised at how easy it is to add robotics to your warehouse.  Learn how AMRs add value immediately, help you plan for the future, and safeguard your operations with Fetch Robotics from Barcodes. The experts from Barcodes can seamlessly integrate Zebra robotics solutions without disrupting your warehouse operations. Questions? Reach out to us online or call (855) 233-2917.

Exploring Mobile Robotics Q&A

Can Locus Robotics integrate with Epicor Eclipse? Yes. We’ve got quite a few customers on Epicor, other older warehouse management systems, and even homegrowns. So as long as the database can communicate with us via SOAP, REST sockets or a few other protocols, we can integrate with that solution.

What are some of the hiccups and issues with robotics deployment that you have had to deal with in the past? One thing we find is what we put into operation on go live, day one doesn’t always look the same on subsequent days. Our team stays there, designs, develops, and changes onsite to make it work even better. Many of the issues arise from peer training. Users don’t always understand how to work with our bots. So we will spend a lot of extra time on training. Another aspect is is warehouse hygiene- making sure the warehouse has clean floors and organized aisles for AMRs to pass through. Things of that nature.
