General Karter features
Karters are compact, robust and agile. They work with your infrastructure and only need 10 minutes charging for an 8-hour shift. Navigation is autonomous, with convenient integration in your operations.
The Karter models
Moves pallets weighing up to 1500 kg around your plant, efficiently and reliably.
Lifts your pallets up by 500 mm to bring them to a convenient working height.
Handles a wide range of loads, such as roller cages, boxes, tanks, etc.
The control system communicates with a Karter over Wi-Fi when necessary, at the start and end of each trip. It then drives autonomously from the starting point to the destination.
Forklift drivers can be difficult to find and the work can lead to fatigue, mistakes and accidents. Karters provide an effective solution, working safely and efficiently around the clock.
Agility and safety
Karters can turn on the spot, to operate in crowded buildings and narrow aisles. The safety laser scanners prevent collisions. Karters can cope with ramps, doors and lifts.
The Battery Management System (BMS) optimises the charging cycle and the life of the batteries. Our LiFePO4 batteries avoid the fire hazards of Li-ion batteries.
Karter software interfaces with a range of ERP and warehouse management systems. The Bluebotics platform is also used by other materials handling systems, facilitating integration of solutions from multiple suppliers.
All Karters are based on a modular design, using the same batteries, BMS, navigation and safety system. This platform is extended with model-specific features (lift, conveyor, etc.).
Safety laser scanners at the front and back ensure Karters are safe to use close to personnel, other vehicles and unexpected obstructions. They provide navigation, based on the features of your building – no need to install cables in the floor or targets on the wall.
Configuration is straightforward and flexible: a Karter is driven around under manual control and scans the building to create a map. The map is then cleaned up and uploaded to the Karters. We provide on-site support for the system set-up.
