Techmetics launches fleet of autonomous navigation robots for service industries

Techmetics, a robotics solutions company, has launched two new autonomous navigation robots – the Techi Butler and Techi Cart series.

Headquartered in Singapore, Techmetics says it is aiming to innovate and promote change in various service sectors such as hospitality, healthcare, casino and manufacturing.

Building on its success in Asia and Australia, Techmetics is expanding its Techi robot series which currently encompasses ten customizable robots. 

The company says that now it is delivering “the world’s first multi-point delivery robots with a multilevel fleet management system to the US for the first time”.

With its proprietary technology, Techmetics has been developing robots and add-on software solutions over the past seven years.

The firm has quickly expanded its distribution across different markets including Australia, United Arab Emirates and Thailand and developed clout in the robotics industry by working with international brands such as Yotel, AccorHotels and Las Vegas Sands.

Mathan Muthupillai, CEO and founder of Techmetics, says: “Our Techi service robots are innovative tools companies can use to enhance their productivity and ensure their delivery needs are met in a cost-effective manner.

“We are excited to launch our new products and are confident they will be received enthusiastically by the US market.”

One of the company’s newest models is the Techi Butler, a service-oriented robot for multi-point delivery.

This product was designed with the hospitality and healthcare industries in mind, revolutionizing the way hotel guests receive room service and deliveries.

Techi Butlers are also making their debut in other industries such as office buildings and food and beverage.

Staff can enjoy this user-friendly robot which can assist with tasks such as grabbing documents from the printer room, distributing office mail and even delivering coffee and lunch orders from reception.

The Techi Butler series includes three types of models with options of two or three standard compartments and a payload of approximately 132 pounds.

Key features include up to three multi-point deliveries in one journey, automatic compartment doors, a 10.1-inch touch screen for user communication, an integrated elevator management system and private automatic branch exchange.

These robots can also engage with users through mobile features by calling and sending text messages directly to the users’ cell phones.

The series will be available for both leasing and purchasing. The Techi Butler is currently being used at YotelPad Miami and Techmetics has plans to expand into other hotels and resorts.

Techmetics is also debuting its Techi Cart series, which was designed to assist housekeeping departments and kitchens in hotels and hospitals for bulk delivery needs.

The Techi Cart series consists of the Techi Linen Cart, Techi Food Cart and Techi High Payload Cart.

Based on the type of cart product, the payload ranges from 220 to 550 pounds and is available in different configurations depending on operation needs.

These robots autonomously pick up and drop off linens and food carts without any assistance.

They operate on multiple floors and facilitate back-of-house services from areas such as laundry rooms, kitchens and housekeeping departments.

The Techi Cart height can be customized according to the customers’ needs.

In addition, the Techi robot series also includes the Techi Drinks Serve, Techi Concierge and Techi Stack. Techmetics plans to launch those products for USA market later this year.

All of the Techi robot products are autonomous robots that are designed to collect and deliver items to and from multiple locations.

Depending on the model, these robots can load up to approximately 550 pounds. They run at a maximum speed of nearly five feet per second as well as operate for 13 continuous hours.

The Techi robots can be personalized according to a company’s branding or theme through display settings, language choices and dialogue.
