K. Hartwell unveils autonomous warehouse robot

March 6, 2023
The logistics solutions provider will show its A-Mate Counter, designed to lift pallets and lattice boxes of up to one ton without human intervention, at the ProMat Show in Chicago March 20.

Logistics technology provider K. Hartwall has unveiled its new autonomous mobile robot (AMR), the A-Mate Counter for pallet and lattice box lifting, according to a press release.

The battery-powered A-Mate Counter can carry payloads of over one ton and has a lift height of one meter (39.5 inches). It is able to operate autonomously in warehouses and distribution centers, interacting with both other AMRs and manual traffic. A touch screen is installed for adjusting settings. It has the option of operating 24/7 due to the automatic interim charging of its lithium-ion batteries, the company stated.

“We are very excited to launch our new mobile robot, the A-Mate Counter,” said Eero Heinonen, EVP at K. Hartwall. “The A-MATE Counter is a next generation AMR that enables efficient handling of pallets in very narrow environments and allows the customer to adjust both layout and processes themselves.”

The A-Mate Counter’s safety features include clear light indicators, emergency stop buttons, emergency brakes, detection sensors and emergency stop switches in the fork tips, and 360-degree sensors.

Visitors will be able to see the A-Mate Counter March 20-23 in Chicago at the ProMat Show, which features over 1,000 supply chain solution providers, at booth #N6945. At ProMat, K. Hartwall will also host a seminar on robotics featuring the A-Mate.
