inVia Robotics has introduced a “goods-to-box” robotics system, which is designed to integrate seamlessly with warehouse management systems (WMS) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.
The solution is available through a Robotics as a Service business model where users pay monthly for each robot, which allows them to scale up or down to meet seasonal or fluctuating demand. If a robot malfunctions or requires an upgrade, inVia Robotics will swap it out to ensure downtime is minimized.
inVia Robotics’ GrabIt robot can lift items up to 30 lbs. and up to 24 inches wide, ranging in size from a deck of cards to a 24-pack of soda. It can also reach up to eight feet and work for 10 hours on a single battery charge. Once a product is picked, a GrabIt can offload an item to its companion, TransIt, which can accumulate orders and zip them to an awaiting box to be shipped.
Its Robotics Management System enables users to dynamically change their workflow in real time as well as minimize wait times, empowering businesses to change their processes on-the-fly. It works alongside the company’s Robotics Operation Center, which notifies inVia Robotics of any issues that need to be addressed, to ensure that a robotic fleet is performing the right tasks and functioning properly at all times.
