CINCINNATI, Ohio (August 31, 2020)– AHS (Advanced Handling Systems), a full-service provider of integrated fulfillment, distribution, and robotic solutions, has formed a partnership with Caja Robotics – a visionary software and robotics company that is committed to advance warehouse operations through its smart and flexible goods-to-person robotic fulfillment solution.
Caja Robotics was founded due to the daily challenges experienced in the world of order fulfillment. This was the driver to develop an economic warehouse robotics solution that is adaptive enough to work with existing infrastructure and flexible enough to handle peaks in sales. Flexibility is a strong suit, as Caja can respond to peak demands by moving robot working hours or condensing the robots to fewer aisles. Employees can manually pick from the other aisles.
The Caja solution is currently the best goods-to-person solution for brownfield implementations and can easily adapt to your warehouse by utilizing existing infrastructure like shelving, floors, and boxes. The system is scalable and modular due to its competitive setup cost, ease of use to add pick stations and aisles, and short lead time. The pick stations enable bulk replenishment with no decanting needed for inbound goods. The system includes serial pick stations where boxes are continuously presented and parallel pick stations where boxes are accessible simultaneously for an extended period.
Caja employs a two-robot system to reduce cycle time and lower overall cost. The small cart robot is used for picking and most of the travel. The larger lift robot is used for replenishment and continuous storage optimization.
“AHS is thrilled to partner with Caja Robotics as their premier integrator partner in North America. We feel that the technology provides an innovative, best-in-class, goods-to-person solution that can be easily retrofitted into existing and new environments, and done so at a much more rapid pace than traditional solutions,” says Drew Eubank, Director of Customer Solutions at AHS.
“We are excited to partner with AHS to support our expansion in North America. Given AHS’ strong presence in the United States, paired with their deep expertise in warehouse automation and robotics, I am confident that we are well-positioned to address the needs of US customers with our flexible robotics solution,” says Dr. Ilan Cohen, CEO of Caja Robotics.
