Seegrid Launches Autonomous Buffer Management Solution for Transformative Material Handling Automation in Manufacturing and Warehousing

February 27, 2024  |  Pittsburgh, PA

Seegrid Corporation, a leader in autonomous mobile robot (AMR) solutions for material handling, announces the groundbreaking release of Autonomous Buffer Management (ABM), revolutionizing the way warehouses, manufacturing, and logistics facilities automate pallet and other payload-based inventory buffers to optimize their mission-critical workflows.

ABM is the industry’s most comprehensive solution designed to automate these essential buffer management workflows across the material handling spectrum. By automating this workflow with Seegrid’s Lift AMR solutions—whether managing inbound materials to putaway, orchestrating the seamless movement of finished goods to outbound zones, or controlling the flow of work-in-progress materials to the manufacturing line—this innovative solution provides unparalleled efficiency and predictability.

“The introduction of our Autonomous Buffer Management solution is the latest innovation from Seegrid that brings the very latest and most beneficial technologies to our customers in the form of an integrated, high-performing and reliable solution that can be successfully commercialized and deliver real customer benefit,” said Joe Pajer, CEO and President of Seegrid. “Delivering solutions that work in the real world and thus deliver significant customer value is our passion as a company.” 

Key features of Seegrid’s ABM solution include:

End-to-End Automation: The solution seamlessly automates workflows from inbound logistics to outbound distribution, offering a holistic approach to material handling automation.

Operational Cost Reduction & Lower Inventory Levels: By automating buffer management tasks, facilities will have lower, more precise inventory requirements and can significantly lower operational costs associated with manual forklift handling, reduce labor requirements, and minimize errors in material flow.

Reliable Throughput and Traffic Flow: Facilities can now plan for reliable throughput and traffic flow, ensuring a smoother and more efficient operation.This stability enhances overall productivity and customer satisfaction.

Resource Reallocation: Workers can now be strategically reallocated to more complex, value-added tasks, empowering the workforce to focus on tasks that require human expertise, creativity, and problem-solving.

Stability and Predictability: ABM brings the stability and predictability offered by automation to some of the most critical workflows in warehouse and manufacturing environments today.

Enhanced Flexibility: The solution is adaptable to diverse operational environments, providing flexibility to accommodate evolving business needs and expanding changes in demand.

“We are excited to introduce Autonomous Buffer Management to our lineup of already proven AMR solutions. This innovation addresses a crucial need in material handling automation that is applicable to nearly every manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics facility in the world. Our customers often provide insights into their operations that highlight the presence of buffers within their workflows, as well as the limitations associated with manual processes. By automating the management of these buffer zones they can expect significant benefits including efficiency and cost savings, lower inventory levels, improved responsiveness, reduced lead times, and enhanced accuracy,” said Chief Sales Officer David Griffin.

Seegrid’s ABM solution represents a significant leap forward in material handling automation, enabling companies to achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and agility in their operations. By incorporating end-to-end automation of buffer management, Seegrid continues to pave the way for a future where autonomous mobile robots seamlessly integrate with human-operated processes, creating a more harmonized and productive workplace for all.
