World's first SnapCart showing at Modex...Posted Mar 05, 2020
WMS innovator SnapFulfil is debuting its cutting-edge new fulfillment cart at Modex 2020.
CHICAGO, IL, March 2 –"SnapCart" – an extension of the multi-award-winning SnapFulfil warehouse management system from Synergy Logistics - is an autonomous mobile robot (AMR) that can significantly reduce pickers' daily walking distance from as much as 15 miles to 1 mile. This offers considerable savings.
Adopting a "man-to-goods" approach to multi-order picking and automation, SnapCart is a low-cost and low-risk solution. Warehouses can gradually integrate the collaborative robots without making any costly infrastructure changes.
According to SnapFulfil's CEO/North America Don White, SnapCart utilizes an intuitive "cellular picking" method whereby the picker is allocated a confined cell in the picking area. Similar to Uber, the nearest picker is assigned to SnapCart and instructed to perform the picks just for this cell. A unique light bar, controlled by the SnapFulfil WMS, displays which items are required, ensuring high productivity and accuracy.
Said White, "Whereas many AMRs have been developed from a robotics standpoint, SnapCart is application led and has been specifically engineered for the demands of a featureless warehouse environment."
"At 48 totes, it carries more than any other man-to-goods cart on the market. The motors and sensors are engineered to automotive industry standards, while Simultaneous Location and Mapping (SLAM) navigation technology ensures safe and efficient manuvering at all times."
Designed to enhance picking, rather than replace warehouse operatives, SnapCart has an easy-to-use interface, so staff can be trained within minutes. Carts can be added as needed to manage start-up costs and scalability.
