March 11, 2019, Munich The Ger­man robot­ics startup Mag­a­zino exhibits for the first time their mobile pick­ing robot TORU at the Pro­MAT show in Chicago (booth S2897, April 8–11, 2019). TORU is the first mar­ket proven solu­tion, that can not only trans­port, but also store and retrieve indi­vid­ual items in shelf racks com­pletely flex­i­ble and autonomous. It works along­side human co-work­ers, uses free nav­i­ga­tion and is spe­cial­ized on pick­ing and replen­ish­ing shoe boxes on heights from 3in (8cm) till 8ft 2in (2,5m) above ground.

Fred­erik Brant­ner, Co-Founder and CEO of Mag­a­zino high­lights: “We are proud to present our robot TORU for the first time at the most impor­tant logis­tics event in North Amer­ica. The US mar­ket shows great poten­tial and we are ready to rev­o­lu­tion­ize ware­house automa­tion with this new gen­er­a­tion of intel­li­gent robots. We are look­ing for a first part­ner in the US for a pilot project in 2020.”

The robot TORU is already in live oper­a­tion at sev­eral shoe ware­houses in
Europe. Magazino’s cus­tomers ben­e­fit from a scal­able and self-learn­ing solu­tion. The robots are:

Eco­nom­i­cal
TORU han­dles small batch sizes and returns with ease: it works autonomously and effi­ciently up to 18 hours a day. This means that it can be active out­side reg­u­lar shift times and help smooth peaks, for exam­ple, through prepara­tory work.

Sim­ple
TORU inte­grates eas­ily into exist­ing ware­houses and processes. Once con­fig­ured, it works autonomously along­side its human col­leagues. Using reg­u­lar WiFi, it con­nects seam­lessly to the ware­house man­age­ment sys­tem to receive pick­ing orders.

Intel­li­gent
Through sen­sors, cam­eras and the intel­li­gent oper­at­ing sys­tem ACROS, TORU can per­ceive its envi­ron­ment, react inde­pen­dently to changes and even learn from expe­ri­ence.

Made in Ger­many
Mag­a­zino Ltd. was founded in 2014, Munich, Ger­many by Fred­erik Brant­ner, Lukas Zanger and Niko­las Engel­hard.
