Robotic Inventory Storage and Retrieval System

Urbx has launched a robotic inventory storage and retrieval system capable of fulfilling complex, multi-SKU orders.

Urbx has launched a robotic inventory storage and retrieval system capable of fulfilling complex, multi-SKU orders. The system builds on the principles of traditional automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and uses a combination of robotics, software and storage racking.

The system uses a fleet of Urbx TowerBots driven by AI to find the shortest 3D path through a dense storage grid to retrieve totes and bring them out to a pick station. TowerBots move across the top of racking and drop down through strategically located columns to access inventory. This storage grid design requires no navigating aisles or digging to access totes below top storage layers, enabling access to inventory at all levels—stacked up to 75 totes high—in seconds. TowerBots then move totes down through those same columns to built-in conveyor tiles for transport to order fulfillment and consolidation.

The Urbx system offers double-deep storage for maximum possible density and capacity, while maintaining a small horizontal footprint. The ability to handle up to 100 pounds per tote allows the system to accommodate a broad range of inventory, including heavy, dense items.
