Robotics and supply chain automation firm, GreyOrange, will launch its new goods-to-person Butler XL at LogiMat 2018, the 16th International Trade Fair for Intralogistics Solutions and Process Management in Stuttgart, Germany on 13-15 March, said a statement. With the new ButlerTM XL, GreyOrange expands the range of goods-to-person solutions that can be used in manufacturing facilities and omnichannel warehouses, to move different kinds of loads from raw materials to finished goods. Company said that the Butler XL can handle a payload of 1600 kgs (3500 lbs) including pallets, drums and sacks. Designed to work in tandem with the current Butler system, this makes it easy to add its new capabilities to existing operations.
