LiBiao's Sorting Robot
LiBiao Robot has announced that it is entering the European market with its Mini Yellow range of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). And, in line with the company's overall global strategy, LiBiao is seeking strategic alliances with distribution partners in the UK, Germany, Spain, France and Italy.
The Mini Yellow range has been specifically developed as a cost-efficient and flexible alternative to the high CapEx fixed tilt-tray and cross-belt conveyor-based sortation systems that have traditionally been used within many busy parcel and e-commerce operations. Initially, two models will be offered to the European market - a 5 kg tilt-tray robot and a 30 kg cross-belt model. Both types have CE certification.
Mini Yellow robots are more compact than other AMRs currently on the market, which means they require less space within which to operate: 350 Mini Yellow AMRs can cover 1,300 sqm and handle 20,000 items per hour.
LiBiao's control software navigates the robots safely and efficiently and ensures the optimum route is taken. The software is compatible with all popular European warehouse management systems.
So far, more than 10,000 LiBiao autonomous mobile robots are in operation across China, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the USA.
Established in 2016, LiBiao Robot has its manufacturing and commercial headquarters in Hangzhou, 170 km south-west of Shanghai. The company employs some 150 people and, last year, had an annual turnover in excess of USD10 million.
