ForwardX Robotics outweighs the competition with the new Flex 60-SW

ForwardX Robotics, a global vision-based autonomous mobile robot (AMR) and warehouse solutions provider, announced the launch of its latest cutting-edge addition to the Flex product series: Flex 60-SW. This innovative AMR, equipped with automatic weighing scales along with an interactive touch screen, will revolutionize picking accuracy in the warehouse. The company demonstrated the new robot publically for the first time at the recent Logistic-Tech Tokyo 2023.

Picking precision for warehouses is crucial to customer satisfaction, operational efficiency, cost management, and brand reputation in the highly competitive e-commerce fulfillment market. Flex 60-SW’s automatic weighing scale integration revolutionizes picking workflows, streamlining operations, and eliminating errors. Real-time weight measurements allow warehouse staff to use the AMR to accurately identify and pick the right items, improving efficiency and reducing costly mistakes. Customers can customize the touch screen and software with informational visuals, bar codes, item quantities, etc.

ForwardX Robotics carefully designed the Flex 60-SW to seamlessly integrate into warehouse operations, prioritizing user experience. Flex 60-SW supports onboard racks and can carry 60 kg (132 lbs). With leading multi-sensor fusion technology, computer vision, SLAM navigation, and 180-degree obstacle detection and avoidance, it navigates complex environments easily. This AMR optimizes human-machine collaboration, allowing them to work in perfect harmony in a variety of scenarios.

“The introduction of Flex 60-SW marks an exciting milestone for ForwardX Robotics,” said Nicholas Chee, CEO of ForwardX Robotics. “We are proud to establish a new standard for excellence in the industry by offering AMRs that not only increase productivity but also elevate picking operations to truly astonishing levels of precision. This innovation empowers our clients to adeptly navigate the intricate challenges of contemporary logistics, thereby paving the way for their resounding success.”

The Flex 60-SW is the most recent addition to the company’s already extensive product catalog. ForwardX’s ability to adapt to the specific needs of its users is one of the differentiating aspects of the company. For retail distribution and e-commerce fulfillment centers in particular, the Flex 60-SW stands out from the competition due to its high payload capacity and built-in weighing scale.
