Hai Robotics launched what is said to be the world's first telescopic Grapple Hook ACR, the HaiPick A42T-E2, and the HaiPick System 3, which deliver increasing storage density and performance at a smaller warehouse footprint. The telescopic Grapple Hook ACR can be integrated within HaiPick System 3, creating a nexus that facilitates higher performance while delivering enhanced storage density.
"Businesses nowadays are struggling to not only optimize their warehouse space, but also strike a balance between automation and leaving room for growth," says Peter Guan, general manager at Hai Robotics EMEA. "We are thrilled with the launch of the HaiPick A42T-E2. This project encapsulates our commitment to providing intelligent, flexible and efficient solutions for the modern warehousing industry, while keeping in mind the growing and dynamic needs of this market on a global scale."
- The HaiPick A42T-E2—equipped with ChainPick technology—features a grappling hook with a picking speed of 2.7 seconds, quickly pulling totes one after another. Such ChainPick technology is key to enabling up to five-deep tote storage capacity, allowing shorter picking and placing time to further streamline the goods-to-person workflow. Horizontal space in between totes can be slashed by 60%, ensuring no space gap at the back and hence optimizing existing warehouse storage space.
- The HaiPick System 3, on the other hand, enables ultra-high storage density up to 50 totes/㎡ and increasing worker efficiency up to six times. HaiPick System 3 is a highly standardized system incorporating Hai's telescopic Grapple Hook ACRs and fast-transit K50 autonomous mobile robots (AMR) running at a speed of 4m/s.
"HaiPick System 3 is a high-performance and agile solution that scales alongside businesses to better achieve instantaneous customer satisfaction," adds Guan. "Combined with the telescopic Grapple Hook ACR, warehouses will be able to achieve a level of performance efficiency and ROI at new heights in both B2B and B2C operations, such as within 3PL and apparel industries."
