Karter, a subsidiary of Weighpack, has unveiled three new fast-charging autonomous mobile robot (AMR) models featuring BlueBotics technology.

The Karter AMRs can operate for eight hours after just 10 minutes charging.

Karter commercial manager for AMRs Patrick van Tiel says: “These Karters are the future of materials handling.

"They reduce a company’s reliance on human resources to carry out repetitive, labour-intensive tasks and they can help lower costs and increase safety, ensuring tasks are carried out predictably and reliably every time.”

The range comprises the Karter Kompakt automated pallet truck capable of carrying payloads of up to 1,500 kg, the Karter Mono AMR that can transport a wide range of payloads, such as roller cages or boxes, weighing up to 1,500 kg and the Karter Lyft, an autonomous low-lift (500 mm) forklift capable of transporting pallets weighing up to 1,000 kg.

Driven by BlueBotics’ ANT natural feature navigation, the vehicles do not require any permanent changes to be made to a site’s infrastructure in order to operate effectively such as laying magnetic tape or installing reflective targets. 

Karter AMRs are also fully interoperable. They can be used alone or in a full connected AMR fleet, even with other brand ANT driven vehicles.

BlueBotics chief executive Nicola Tomatis says: “These Karters bring a new level of flexibility and agility to the AMR market. They are highly compact. They can recharge in no time. And thanks to the ANT navigation technology inside them they are accurate, reliable, quick to commission and immediately fleet-ready.”
