Amazon’s Warehouse Robots Do Some Heavy LiftingAmazon’s Warehouse Robots Do Some Heavy Lifting
Smart fulfillment centers bring robots and humans together to stow, pick, and pack consumer goods.
The robots Amazon uses in its fulfillment centers, featured in this video, include squat mobile robots that carry towering product shelves — weighing hundreds of kilograms — to human pickers, saving those workers from dashing around the warehouse. Also featured are (1) a robotic arm that can lift 1,200 kilograms and manipulate pallet loads to within one-tenth of a millimeter, and (2) labeling robots (known as “slam machines”) that can label up to one package per second.
