Bricspac have introduced a new fulfillment solution – AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) that simplifies and automates material movement and streamlines order, case, batch, and pallet picking workflows. With the help of AMR, manufacturers can enjoy increased flexibility and resilience in their operations by reshoring their manufacturing operations and corresponding supply chain. It has also forced manufacturers to adopt the principles of lean manufacturing, which involves removing non-value-added activities, creating pull within the manufacturing process, and establishing flow between different steps of the manufacturing process. This, in turn, helps manufacturers eliminate the wastes of lean manufacturing such as transportation, motion, waiting, and skills.

With AMR’s autonomous and flexible capabilities, manufacturers can effectively manage their material movement and streamline their workflows without human intervention. AMRs follow a pre-defined path and use sensors and cameras to navigate through the facility. This innovative technology eliminates the need for expensive and complicated conveyors or other material handling equipment.  

As manufacturers look for ways to reduce costs and improve their supply chain operations, AMRs provide an effective solution for material movement and workflow optimization. With its flexibility and efficiency, AMRs are quickly becoming an essential tool for manufacturers who are embracing the principles of lean manufacturing and reshoring their operations.

Increase productivity and efficiency while minimizing the risk of human error.

AMRs can make





AMRs are widely used in warehouses and distribution centers for autonomously transporting goods, pallets, and containers between storage locations, picking stations, and shipping docks. These robots navigate through aisles and around obstacles, optimizing material flow and increasing operational efficiency in busy warehouse environments.

AMRs are employed for automating inventory counting, tracking, and management tasks in warehouses and retail stores. Equipped with RFID scanners or barcode readers, these robots traverse aisles and scan inventory items, updating inventory databases in real-time and ensuring accurate inventory records without the need for manual stocktaking.

AMRs play a crucial role in e-commerce fulfillment centers for automating order picking, packing, and shipping operations. These robots retrieve order totes or bins from storage locations, transport them to order picking stations, and deliver them to packing stations for shipment preparation, streamlining order fulfillment processes and reducing order processing times.

AMRs are integrated into manufacturing assembly lines for transporting components, parts, and materials between workstations, assembly cells, and storage areas. These robots collaborate with human workers and other automated systems to ensure a smooth flow of materials and optimize production throughput in manufacturing facilities.

MRs are utilized in hospitals and healthcare facilities for automating logistics and transportation tasks, such as delivering medications, medical supplies, and equipment between departments, patient rooms, and nursing stations. These robots navigate through hospital corridors and elevators, enhancing operational efficiency and freeing up healthcare staff to focus on patient care.

AMRs are deployed in retail stores for automating various tasks, including inventory replenishment, shelf stocking, and floor cleaning. These robots navigate store aisles and backrooms, restocking shelves with merchandise, and removing out-of-stock items, improving store presentation and customer satisfaction while reducing labor costs for retailers.
