Treadbot Multi-Head High Throughput Robot

The patented Treadbot uses a constant speed series of treads to move a series of Bot heads. Most configurations have a single Bot per tread. When the Bot head gripper needs to dwell over an object to pick it up, the Bot moves backwards at a speed equal to the tread speed. The overall effect is similar to a person walking backwards on a moving sidewalk.

Treadbot Markets

Pick and Place / Packaging

When throughput rates exceed that of a single Delta or SCARA robot, traditionally multiple robots are implemented. This has significant costs for equipment and the required worksite floorspace. A single Treadbot system can be configured in less space.

Order Picking

Today's order picking often has a human in the loop. The Treadbot can be configured in several options to fulfill the required orders. Different Bots can have different grippers so items can be grabbed effectively.
