Kingpin™ — Lift & Hitch Top Module

One Device to Connect to Carts and Load/Unload Materials

Kingpin™ is a simple but powerful automation top module that enables Waypoint’s omnidirectional autonomous mobile robots to automatically load and unload payloads and connect to a variety of carts. This offers the ultimate in flexibility for automated material transport.

With Kingpin, you no longer have to dedicate a robot to cart connection or lifting payload. Kingpin enables Vector™ or MAV3K™ to do two critical jobs with one simple top module, as opposed to having a dedicated fleet of lift deck robots for automatic load/unload, and another dedicated fleet of cart connecting robots for cart transport. By employing Kingpin, Waypoint AMRs can automatically pick up a tote on one side of the factory, deliver it to the other side of the factory, and then connect to a cart on the way back to the starting point.

Multitasking Made Easy

With Kingpin you get an AMR equipped to do both tasks – automatic loading and unloading, as well as the ability to connect to carts commonly used in factories and warehouses. And Waypoint AMRs’ omnidirectional capability enables Vector & MAV3K to quickly dock into work cells or conveyors found in the most complex or ever changing facilities.
