Warehouse automation firm Stow Robotics, a subsidiary of Stow Group, has rebranded as Movu Robotics.
In a statement, a company spokesperson said: “The mission of Movu Robotics is to make your business more agile, responsive, and adaptable to market changes, no matter how big or small.”
Some of the solutions to fall under the new brand include a pallet shuttle for high-density storage, a bin shuttle for order fulfillment, the Movu iFollow AMR for seamless in-and-out logistics automation and the Movu Eligo piece-picking robotic arm.
These four robots will be the flagship products of the brand under the company’s new name.
Through the new venture, the company said it hopes to support customers through ‘modern, highly scalable and plug-and-play logistics automation systems’ to improve warehousing operations.
Also announced today was the Movu brand’s new 15m-high warehouse in Lokeren, which is home to the four aforementioned robots.
Order-picking robot Eligo, the design of which features three fingers and a suction cup, was developed to pick bags and boxes and place them inside surrounding boxes.
A machine-learning algorithm was used to train the robot so it can ‘self-learn’ about variations in product packaging as it picks.
The solution can reportedly handle 80-90% of the goods within an e-commerce fulfilment centre and pick at a rate of 600 items an hour.
