Seegrid launches new Palion autonomous mobile robot

Seegrid has launched its Palion autonomous mobile robot range.

The company says its newest line of mobile robots is designed to provide automated material flow—increasing throughput productivity, improving employee and facility safety, reducing labor and operation costs, and driving continuous improvement.

Seegrid says “Palion” is the new label for all its new and forthcoming autonomous mobile robots, as the company continues to build upon “record-breaking growth”.

The new Palion Pallet Truck has enhanced pallet staging and auto-charging capabilities.

Jim Rock, Seegrid’s CEO, says: “Our customers span the global supply chain and are looking to accelerate productivity amidst pressures to reduce costs and improve safety.

“It’s a challenge we at Seegrid are uniquely equipped to solve, and we are very proud of our demonstrated track record helping some of the largest global brands in manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, and e-commerce realize the full potential of AMR technology.”

The new Palion Pallet Truck Series 8 with enhanced features and functionality is Seegrid’s latest version of its pallet truck.

Most notably, the new pallet truck includes lane staging capabilities—autonomously identifying, building, and depleting lanes for precise, efficient pick-up and drop-off of palletized goods.

The new pallet truck also features auto-charge, which removes a costly and dangerous human touchpoint and boosts productivity by automating the scheduling, dispatch, and charging to keep operations running 24/7.

Jeff Christensen, Seegrid’s vice president of product, says: “Now more than ever, our customers need flexible and reliable end-to-end automation solutions to safely move materials in their dynamic environments.

“Seegrid Palion AMRs are designed specifically to help customers improve safety, increase throughput, and address labor shortages.

“As the market leader, we will continue to deliver on our commitment to provide innovative solutions for customers to automate even more processes and applications for continued improvement and safety across their facilities.”

Seegrid says its ability to build and deliver “best-in-class” AMRs offers compelling advantages for its growing list of customers, as companies across the supply chain accelerate automation initiatives amidst pressures to increase throughput and optimize workflow.

With proprietary, patented technology, Seegrid provides the most robust and advanced navigation system on the market, uniquely designed and delivered with customer needs in mind.

The approach is working, says Seegrid. The company recently reported it doubled revenue year-over-year for two years in a row, and it projects “continued increased growth” in, and demand for, its automation solutions in the year ahead.
