Hai Robotics is demonstrating its intelligent warehousing solution HAIPICK for the first time in Europe by its global partner and system integrator Savoye. The HAIPICK system that pioneered totes-to-person material handling is showcased at Log!Ville, a demonstration center that promotes innovative logistics solutions in Belgium.
The HAIPICK system is a logistics solution that uses an autonomous case-handling robot (ACR) to collect cases and take them to a goods-to-person picking station. The solution combines ACRs that pick and place totes and cartons from 5 to 7-meter shelves with Savoye’s own systems, such as the X-PTS pick stations.
The HAIPICK solution is flexible and scalable and has a fast installation time. The demo installation was up and running within a week. The demo consists of two 4.2-meter-high shelves, a robot, and a picking station – not full-scale, but large enough to demonstrate how it works and the benefits it offers.
The solution is intended for medium-sized and large companies with slow and mid-paced picking operations involving average to large numbers of SKUs. In other words, this is the market segment between manual picking and shuttle systems. One of the most significant advantages is that the system is scalable and can grow as the company grows.
In September 2021, HAI ROBOTICS and Savoy announced a strategic partnership to make automated warehouse technology accessible to the supply chain in Europe and other parts of the world. The partnership leverages Savoye’s expertise in supply chain and warehouse automation and HAI ROBOTICS range of solutions for goods-to-person, meeting high-performance needs of warehouses and factories.
