Robotic Solution Provider Mujin Introduced its latest product, QuickBot, a comprehensive and rapidly deployable case-handling robotic hive. The company says the launch of its warehouse solution is poised to make robotic automation in North American logistics a “no-brainer.”
The first app that became available was an offload solution to automate one of the most challenging tasks in the warehouse receiving process, QuickBot was built with everything needed to solve the app.
Mujin boasts that its QuickBot decompression tool – or QB, as it’s been called – is currently the simplest way to automate warehouse receptions with bots. QuickBot is easy to install, requires no tools, and cases can be selected within a few hours.
QuickBot was first introduced in Boston, at the 2022 AMR & Logistics Show, co-located with The Vision Show. After lifting QuickBot into place in their display booth, Mujin claims that it took less than three hours for the unit to clear the platforms.
Like all of Mujin’s automation solutions, QuickBot is powered by an intelligent robotic controller, the MujinController. Using MujinController’s advanced awareness and real-time motion planning, Mujin’s plate disposal solutions are able to recognize status on the fly.
This feature allows QuickBot to manage real-world scenarios for both single pallet and mixed SKU loads without prior “education” or information from external systems.
In addition, Mujin has equipped the QuickBot arm with a universal heavy-duty grip to meet the physical requirements of general warehouse tasks.
Ross Diankoff, CEO and co-founder of Mujin says: “In our day and age, a lot of robotics automation systems are needed. They need to be very reliable, have high productivity and most of all they need to deploy quickly, so you can Businesses can enjoy a return on investment from day one.
“With the arrival of QuickBot, you will see the beginning of a new revolution in the next several years. You will see a lot of these systems in warehouses, running better, faster and improving working conditions.”
To show how easy it is to integrate QuickBot into various material handling systems, at their AMR & Logistics Show, Mujin along with integration partner Robex paired their QB warehouse with MiR AMR, which manages pallet handling in the separate workstation.
Also at the conference, Mujin’s Director of Sales, Josh Cloer, joined a panel to speak with Robex’s Vice President of Mobile Robotics, Matt Charles, and Formic’s Vice President of Sales, Jack Kaumo, as Mujin and Formic announced a partnership that will make QuickBot available through robotics as a service model.
This means the company can go beyond typical capital outlays and have QuickBot in its warehouse, offload pallets for about $20 an hour, and only pay while it’s up and running.
Mujin says that QuickBot has several features and benefits:
- It lifts easily and can be moved by forklift to the installation site
- Everything is pre-installed on a large metal base plate, so no drilling required
- The security system is pre-installed and ready to operate upon arrival
- The pneumatically operated telescopic sight mount makes it easy to raise the sighting system to the appropriate height
- Conveyor is on rail, height adjustable, and pulls out to connect to existing conveyor
- No system-wide integration is needed to work
