New Delhi, 9 February 2018
GreyOrange, the robotics and supply chain automation company, will launch its artificial intelligence (AI) powered Butler XL robot at LogiMat 2018, the international trade fair for intralogistics solutions and process management to be held in Stuttgart (Germany) from March 13-15, 2018.
With the new Butler XL, GreyOrange expands the range of goods-to-person solutions that can be used in manufacturing facilities and omnichannel warehouses, to move different kinds of loads from raw materials to finished goods. The Butler XL can handle a payload of 1600 kgs (3500 lbs) including pallets, drums and sacks. Designed to work in tandem with the current Butler system, this makes it easy to add its new capabilities to existing operations.
The new Butler robotics system will support multi-floor operations with the integration of an elevator. This provides greater flexibility to optimise handling of inventory across a facility.
GreyOrange is a fast-growing company in supply chain automation, deploying its AI-enabled Butler robotics system in warehouses and fulfilment centers for e-commerce, retail and consumer packaged goods. In the last year, GreyOrange has rapidly expanded its presence with its Butler goods-to-person system deployed in Japan, Hong Kong, India and the Americas, plus a new site currently being installed in Europe.
Samay Kohli, Group Chief Executive Officer, GreyOrange, said, “The Butler goods-to-person robotics solution has been very well received since its launch. The logistics industry has made huge strides in terms of adopting new technologies, and worldwide we are seeing increasing interest in our automation solutions driven by artificial intelligence (AI). At LogiMat, we will demonstrate how our expanded range of Butler products addresses supply chain complexities to deliver end-to-end efficiencies from inbound, inventory management to outbound.”
GreyMatter is the software platform developed by GreyOrange to revolutionise warehouse operations by connecting people, process and technology more efficiently using AI. In real-time, it integrates and delivers all of the functionality, intelligence and services required for optimum warehouse operations. At every step of the process, from receiving to storage to picking to fulfillment, orders are consolidated through automation.
