S-CART Automatic Transport Robot Series


 

 

 

 

This product was received with popularity by many as a guideless automatic transport cart which uses laser sensors. A recent addition to our lineup is the S-CART 1000 with a payload capacity of 1,000 kg (1 ton) and a new feature allowing it to follow the person or object preceding it. We have also added additional options to meet the varying needs of many users.


During the 2017 International Robot Exhibition (iREX), we exhibited the new concept model of S-CART designed for mounted robots. It features an omnidirectional wheel mechanism which allows it to freely move 360 degrees - front, back, left and right. The live demonstration drew the attention of many exhibition goers.


The S-CART automatic transport robot will continue to offer products that emphasize safety and ease-of-use in order to further expand the unmanned transport market with its concept of “easy and free-moving transport.”
