Honeywell and HAI Robotics hook up
02 February 2024
THE ALLIANCE couples Hai’s robotics technology with Honeywell’s Momentum Warehouse Execution Software, enhanced cybersecurity capabilities and experience integrating robotics solutions.
Honeywell Intelligrated president Keith Fisher says: “Companies face high costs for warehouse space, continued labour shortages and pressure to deliver goods quickly. This automated solution allows them to maximise space in their existing facilities, increase productivity and best use their workforce. The combination of Honeywell and Hai Robotics delivers faster time-to-value than most traditional material handling storage and retrieval solutions, providing greater flexibility to meet changing demand and reducing execution risk for our customers.”
Hai Robotics’ autonomous case- and tote-handling mobile robotics (ACR) solutions, which automate item storage and retrieval and make the warehouse put-away and picking processes more efficient, use guided robots capable of reaching up to 32 feet high. These systems condense the required footprint to store goods and can operate within existing brownfield DC and warehouse sites, as well as in the back of retail stores for micro-fulfilment.
Hai Robotics solutions integrate with Honeywell’s Momentum Warehouse Execution Software, enabling DC operators to analyse real-time operating information across a DC and prioritise and redirect work as it is performed by both robotic systems and people, allowing for reduced costs and greater customer service levels.
