Attabotics, which develops a 3D robotics supply chain system for warehouses and e-commerce, has revealed the Attabot 2022, the first commercialized version of its proprietary robot. Built stronger and smarter than its predecessor, the Attabot 2022 includes a simplified mechatronic design that reduces operational costs while also increasing the efficiency of automated picking and packing of goods.

The Attabot 2022 began customer operations in August 2022, the company said, equipped with a flexible payload to accommodate larger bins up to 16-inches tall at 100 lbs., an increase of 25% from Attabotics’ previous robot release. The modular design translates into 60% fewer parts than its previous beta model, allowing for further flexibility and forward compatibility, the company said. 

Additional features include increased acceleration due to high torque motors, enhanced telemetrics for route optimization, improved navigation sensors, and the ability to operate in multiple temperature zones with an unlimited number of robot, structure and workstation configurations. Attabotics said the Attabot 2022 has also been adapted for e-grocery operations, with the structure able to enclose and protect items from outside contaminants.

Inspired by the framework of ant colonies, Attabotics’ scalable micro-fulfillment system condenses traditional warehouse aisles into a single, vertical storage structure. Inside the structure, robotic shuttles move in three-dimensional space to store and deliver goods to workers on the perimeter that pick, pack and ship modern commerce orders. This reduces a company’s warehouse space by 85% (in addition to a reduction in carbon emissions via last-mile delivery) and accelerates shipping processes to meet consumer expectations, said Attabotics. The system’s unique architecture maximizes the flexibility and speed of warehouse fulfillment and optimizes space, allowing additional storage capacity and throughput to support growth without the need for expansion.

“Despite supply chain constraints and chip shortages, we’ve been agile in ensuring all components are accounted for while transitioning our customers from robot prototypes to the new commercialized Attabot 2022 technology,” said Scott Gravelle, CEO and founder of Attabotics. “The ability to commercialize technology – to move a product from concept to market efficiently – is crucial in light of today’s high-demand e-commerce landscape. It’s been a long journey to develop commercial hardware, but I’m proud of the Attabotics team.”

The company said it is continuously refining and evolving its hardware and software technology to meet growing market needs across industries. For more information on the company, visit the Attabotics website here.
