ZMP Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Taniguchi Hisashi), has been selling manual traction attachments since 2018. We have expanded the options to support various transportation equipment used in the warehouse, such as for basket carts, slim carts, and hand lifts. After that, in 2019, in response to further automation, we will also release attachments that are manually attached, automatically transported to the destination and automatically detached.

In response to the growing need for further automation of transportation operations and labor saving, the installation itself with general-purpose carts such as basket carts and slim carts will be automated, and a new function will be installed to automatically attach and detach the tow.

The features of this function are as follows.

  • It can be used as it is without processing basket carts, slim carts, etc.
  • The worker simply sets the dolly in the specified position, and the dolly is automatically transported to the destination.
  • It can tow a dolly weighing up to 600 kg
  • Since the attachment / detachment point of the tow can be set with a landmark, the station can be installed flexibly.
  • The dolly, which is a free wheel for all four wheels, can be towed stably as it is by the dedicated mechanism.

By utilizing this function, the frequency of worker contact with the dolly or robot itself is reduced, which promotes non-contact at the site and contributes to infectious disease control.

In addition, product specifications, prices, product demonstrations, etc. related to this new function will be announced at once (automatic towing) of the program "Logistics support Robot CarriRo, full unmanned transportation" from 10:00 am on Thursday, July 15 of ZMP World 2021. Detachment, automatic pallet alignment, automatic charging) ”will be announced.
