Pittsburgh, PA, April 7, 2019  –IAM Robotics will introduce its most recent advancements to the Swift™ Solution at ProMat 2019 in Chicago from April 8-11. IAM will feature a new Swift robot design complete with conveyor integration and a transport robot that works in conjunction with Swift to exchange full or empty totes. These innovations in autonomous navigation and material selection and handling solve today’s operational challenges in accelerating e-commerce environments.

For the last three years, IAM Robotics has demonstrated new advancements in autonomous mobile robots at ProMat and Modex. This year, IAM continues to push those boundaries by introducing extended capabilities to the Swift Solution for the logistics industry in grocery, health and beauty, pharmaceuticals, and consumer-packaged goods.With two new featured robots and conveyor integration, IAM’s flexible autonomous robotic solutions will ensure seamless e-commerce operations that optimize ROI.

The sleeker Swift redesign includes a smoother lift and is available with a fixed tote or integrated MDR (motorized drive roller) for automatic tote transfer. The adjustable carriage can match the height of a facility’s existing conveyor infrastructure for simpler integration.

The company is also introducing its new transport robot, named Bolt, whose main benefit is to further improve the throughput and ROI of the Swift solution by exchanging totes with Swift, delivering the full tote to the next process in the fulfillment cycle such as packing and shipping. By leveraging Bolt for transport, Swift remains focused on picking.

“With the growing demands in e-commerce, the logistics industry is looking for autonomous robotic solutions that provide flexibility in their operational planning and execution,” says Joel Reed, IAM Robotics CEO. “IAM is responding to these operational challenges by providing advanced innovative solutions in autonomous navigation, material selection and handling, and tote transport and transfer.”

IAM Robotics invites ProMat attendees to visit booth #S4679. Visitors will experience an autonomous mobile e-commerce fulfillment solution and learn how the Swift Solution of autonomous robots provide logistics companies a competitive advantage.

ProMat 2019 will convene inside McCormick Place in Chicago from April 8-11. ProMat is the largest international material handling, logistics and supply chain show and conference held in North or South America. The annual conference is hosted by MHI, an international trade association that has represented the material handling, logistics and supply chain industry since 1945. MHI offers education, networking and solution sourcing for members, their customers, and the industry as a whole through programming and events.
