Transport materials securely, quickly, safely, and without expensive infrastructure changes.
Pharmacy: Give back time to staff and deliver medications from pharmacy to clinic to reduce shrinkage and provide chain of custody.
Laboratory: Transport specimens safely and securely throughout the facility and lab without the use of pneumatic tubes.
Central Sterilization: Safely and quickly process your surgical equipment to maximize scheduling opportunities.
Housekeeping: Automate laundry service by scheduling linen drop off and pick up throughout the facility.
Nutrition: Free up staff to focus on the patient experience, while ensuring hot meals are still hot by the time they get to your patients.
Central Supply: Maintain a lean inventory in-clinic to optimize space utilization.
Facilities: Extend your staff with an extra helper that goes where people go and works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
These robotics logistics solutions provide reliable transportation for goods up to 3200 lbs., increasing throughput, reducing the risk of error and improving worker safety. Maximize operational efficiency by managing non-conveyables and incompatibles with on-demand automation.
Improve your process flow through flexible infrastructure. Rapidly reconfigure your production line without the expense of changing track systems, conveyor belts and other fixed assets. Keep quality high and assembly staff focused by automating material transport between stock room, assembly, test, and packaging.
QC Bot is an autonomous mobile robot, powered by an intelligent navigation system. This solution transports materials securely throughout your facility, meeting your changing demands with improved quality without compromising human safety. QC Bot is where you need it, when you need it, at your beck and call.
- Maximize staff efficiency
- Lean process improvement
- Speed up delivery of goods and supplies
- Increase throughput and reduce batching
- Remove the burden of manual transport
- Reduce cost of operations
- Optimize inventory and reduce shrinkage
- Configure workflows to meet new demands
- Adapt to changing needs without affecting productivity
The QC Bot has an onboard touchscreen user interface that allows for easy command and control of the robot.
Carry material in integrated access-controlled drawers, modular cabinets, or your existing carts.
The robot supports user authentication through RFID reader, barcode scanner, magnetic stripe reader and biometric palm vein scanning.
Chain of Custody
Barcode reader ensures asset tracking through chain of custody of onboard materials.
The robot navigates through unstructured environments, commanding doors and elevators via wireless signals. It needs no tracks, lines, or mirrors for navigation.
The QC Bot has 24/7 capability. It docks itself at the end of its shift, and additional docks can be placed throughout the facility to provide opportunistic charging for constant availability.
