SHENZHEN, China – Hai Robotics has launched two new Haipick robots: the autonomous case-handling robotic (ACR) Haipick A42N and double-deep ACR Haipick A42D.

The rising rental cost of warehouses has become a major issue for many companies. Warehouse managers are constantly looking for the most cost and storage-efficient solution.

Haipick A42D can reduce the number of aisles by 50 percent while increasing storage density by 130 percent. Its telescopic fork can be customized for two rows of double-deep shelving. Its intelligent algorithm can be tailored to meet diverse business models.

The company developed Haipick A42D in 1.5 years. In March 2020, the first Haipick A42D-based system started operations in a 3PL.

Haipick A42N uses cartons as the handling units rather than only totes. Its 3D visual recognition technology identifies goods without the need of codes, resulting in faster inventory count through shelf scanning.

It supports multi-size carton/tote picking and can be applied to multiple business needs. The software platform is tailored to support case-picking and piece-picking. Cartons and totes can be reused to lower costs.

The intelligent optimization algorithm is tailored to fit the industry. It self-optimizes accordingly over time.

Warehouses can be automated within one week and go live within one month. Supports integration of various equipment or customized solutions.
