Eiratech launches new warehouse robot 22 June 2016

Achieves 99.9% accuracy while increasing ‘picks' by six fold

EiraTech the Dublin based innovator of robotics solutions for warehouses and e-fulfilment centres, has announced the launch of EiraBot v4, the latest version of its award winning robot. The new EiraBot boasts significant improvements, to make it among the best performing automated guided vehicles (AGVs) on the market. These include:

> twice the acceleration performance - significantly increasing the efficiency of the robots;
> improvements to suspension, for the smoothest operation under loads;
> additional on board camera for clearer positioning/centring under racks thus ensuring greater stability;
> increased battery life;
> 30.0% reduction in robot height, meaning more space for storage on the racks;
> enhanced safety features, including safety switch, safety bumper and additional proximity sensors.

The new EiraBot plays a central role in EiraTech's solution for automation in warehouses, distribution centres and e-fulfilment centres. A ‘goods to person' solution, literally finding and bringing the correct goods, in the correct order, for pickers to fulfil orders for dispatch, EiraTech eliminates 70.0% of personnel time wasted walking and searching for items, achieves 99.9% accuracy while simultaneously increasing ‘picks' by six fold.

The EiraTech system requires no built infrastructure, like rails or conveyors, to operate, leading to greatly reduced deployment times and costs for operators, as well as increased flexibility for expansion, contraction, or even moving premises.
