Vecna Robotics has introduced an autonomous counterbalanced fork truck, the first in its Silverback Series. This autonomous mobile robot (AMR) offers vertical lift of up to 72” to help distribution, warehousing, and manufacturing organizations move a wider range of payloads and pallet types, lift inventory to and from equipment, and work alongside other material handling vehicles and human workers.

The autonomous counterbalanced fork truck includes dynamic obstacle avoidance to navigate warehouses and is compliant with industry regulations such as the ANSI B56.5-2019. Features include:

Flexible Pallet Handling: Supports pallets of varying sizes and weights, including empty, partial, full, irregular, and double-stacked, with and without bottom boards.

Warehouse Material Hauling: Moves pallets floor-to-floor in a facility, including delivering pallets to staging locations within aisles.

Induction, Extraction and Sortation: Hands off pallets to and from materials handling equipment like conveyors, carts and wrappers.

Opportunistic Material Handling: Transports empty pallets, dunnage, or trash on an as-needed basis.

The new solution also leverages Vecna Robotics’ orchestration engine Pivotal, which analyzes an organization’s operations and adjusts processes accordingly,. Pivotal shares information across people, robots and systems, and integrates with existing warehouse management solutions.
