After thousands of prototypes and millions of test cycles, the Calgary-based 3D robotics supply chain startup has unveiled the first commercialized version of its robot.
Attabotics, the world’s first 3D robotics supply chain system for modern commerce, today revealed the Attabot™ 2022, the first commercialized version of its proprietary robot.
Built stronger and smarter than its predecessor, the Attabot 2022 boasts a simplified mechatronic design that reduces operational costs while increasing the efficiency of automated picking and packing of goods.
Beginning customer operations last month, the Attabot 2022 is equipped with a flexible payload to accommodate larger bins up to 16″ tall at 100lb – an increase of 25% from Attabotics’ previous robot release.
Its ultra-lean, modular design translates into 60% fewer parts than the previous beta model and allows for further flexibility and forward compatibility. Additional features include increased acceleration due to high torque motors, enhanced telemetrics for route optimization, improved navigation sensors, and the ability to operate in multiple temperature zones with an unlimited number of robot, structure, and workstation configurations.
The Attabot 2022 has also been adapted for e-grocery as the structure encloses and protects items from outside contaminants.
“Despite supply chain constraints and chip shortages, we’ve been agile in ensuring all components are accounted for while transitioning our customers from robot prototypes to the new commercialized Attabot 2022 technology,” said Scott Gravelle, CEO and Founder of Attabotics.
“The ability to commercialize technology – to move a product from concept to market efficiently – is crucial in light of today’s high-demand e-commerce landscape. It’s been a long journey to develop commercial hardware, but I’m proud of the Attabotics team.”
