Warehouse Robotics Solutions Partner | FORTNA

Solutions: Robotics

Flexible, scalable, modular warehouse robotics solutions for order fulfillment

Labour cost, availability and safety are challenging for even the most efficient operations. Robotic solutions deliver the speed, accuracy and efficiency to fulfil a broad range of operational requirements for distribution centres. FORTNA experts will partner with your business to engineer flexible, scalable and modular solutions that meet your unique business needs.

Robotics within the distribution center commonly refers to robots, robotic arms and autonomous guided vehicles (AGVs) doing repetitive and physically demanding tasks. Robotics can improve warehouse management, picking, packing, sorting and transporting goods.

FORTNA robotics combines the cutting-edge technology and agility of a startup with the industry and application knowledge of an experienced integrator. This approach delivers cutting-edge robotics that fit established material handling processes and work seamlessly as part of large, integrated systems, increasing efficiency in warehouse management.

FORTNA’s commitment to research and development works to apply the latest advances in vision, sensing and gripping technologies to expand the capability of automation to handle increasingly complex tasks. From singulating items in preparation for sorter induction to unloading at the receiving dock and more, FORTNA provides innovative robotics ready to address challenges facing your business.


Robotic singulation and induction (RSAI)

Identify, pick and place individual items from bulk flow, to produce a properly oriented, single-file stream of packages for downstream automated sortation systems.

Dual robot each picking from totes

Take advantage of two six-axis robots working in tandem with a variety of end effectors to maximise picking efficiency and boost output in a variety of order fulfilment applications.

Multi-pick robotic end effector

Pick over 30 items at a time and fill several orders simultaneously, a strong fit for applications with large amounts of multi-item orders to fulfil.

Innovative. Efficient. Robust.

Optimal robotic technologies are incorporated into innovative designs for a robust solution that meets and exceeds performance expectations. FORTNA robotic solutions increase productivity and efficiency while lowering overall costs.

Popular applications include each picking and eCommerce packing. Robotic picking arms, sophisticated end-of-arm effectors, advanced vision systems, sensors and automatic shut off all work together to handle a wide variety of SKUs and ensure safe collaboration with human workers.

Powered by an intelligent warehouse execution system

FORTNA WES™ intelligent software optimises the design and allows you to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities for compounded gains in efficiency and insights. This unique software platform makes it possible to integrate solutions from virtually any type of equipment and swap out technologies without having to make expensive and time-consuming updates to your existing systems.


Unique approach to identify best-fit technologies

The FORTNA Distribution Optimisation Framework™ leans into your data and our proprietary processes, tools and algorithms to design and deliver solutions using best-fit automation technologies. We work with a deep bench of partners, but our unique approach allows for a truly innovative and holistic design that leverages best-in-class robotics, without bias toward any manufacturer or supplier. We can help you select appropriate technologies and work collaboratively with the chosen supplier to optimise your solution for exemplary business results.


Proof of concept and business case justification

Complex projects sometimes require a proof of concept (POC) to validate functionality and justify the business case before investing significant capital expense for the broader solution. At FORTNA, business case is at the heart of everything we do. We will help you develop the business case, align stakeholders and obtain the Board-level support you need for your investments.
