MODEX 2024: HWArobotics introduces reliable, customizable shuttle systems

Shuttle systems now available to companies across North America


HWArobotics' FPSS1500 series pallet robot shuttle system was on display at MODEX 2024.
ASRS technology provider HWArobotics announced that its shuttle systems are now available in North America at MODEX 2024 in Atlanta.

HWArobotics showcased its shuttle automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) technology at MODEX 2024 in Atlanta.

The Singapore-based warehousing and logistics robot company has 20 years’ experience in developing and building shuttle robot systems. HWArobotics is looking to expand its customer base in the North America region and develop new partnerships with distributors, following its shuttle system deployment by Canadian 3PL business Darwynn.

HWArobotics launched four product lines at MODEX, including three tote shuttles, one pallet shuttle and associated cargo lifts, racking and control software. The customizable shuttle robot systems deliver high throughput for a wide range of industry sectors and can be deployed fast to deliver results quickly, according to the company.

HWArobotics demonstrations at MODEX

At the show, HWArobotics’ warehouse automation staff were on hand to demonstrate the company’s products, which use high-performance components from European suppliers, including Siemens, Voestalpine and Hilti. The stand featured the SLS300, SLS400 and SLS600 series tote shuttles along with the FPSS1500 pallet shuttle.

Manufactured using durable, long-lasting core components to create a stable structure, the SLS300 series standard tote shuttle storage system delivers high efficiency and up to 24 hours of continuous operation. Capable of speeds of up to 4 m/s and acceleration of 2 m/s, the SLS300 has single machine capability of up to 120 boxes an hour.

Alongside the SLS300, HWArobotics also launched the SLS400 series variable tote shuttle system to the North American market. The robot ASRS can mix and store containers of different sizes and can be configured to meet different efficiency requirements.

HWArobotics’ SLS600 3D tote shuttle system can meet the needs of low-traffic, high-efficiency environments, such as spare parts, publishing, and ecommerce sites. Shuttles can realize any change of lane operation, while system capacity can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the number of shuttles to meet local short-term demand peaks.

Also on display at MODEX 2024 was the FPSS1500 series pallet robot shuttle system designed for warehouses and distribution centers. The four-directional solution is an ASRS designed for efficient pallet handling and storage, with global standard CE and UL certification. The all-electric shuttle devices are capable of moving in four directions within the racking structure, providing enhanced versatility and operational efficiency.

The FPSS1500A is designed for room temperature environments across the manufacturing, distribution, food and beverage, and industrial sector. It has been created specifically for cold storage, such as food, medicine and cold chain businesses. Using AI scheduling algorithms, it has achieved swarm intelligence within the PSR system to automatically adjust efficiency based on the number of vehicles and the rack structure.

“At HWArobotics we are enormously proud of the 20 years’ of experience we have as a pioneer in the field of shuttle robot systems and our exceptional customer service,” said Sky Chen, General Manager of HWArobotics. “We have established a base in the US and are excited to enhance the competitiveness of North American businesses with our shuttle ASRS technology.”
