The world's largest and at the same time toughest intralogistics test has come to an end. At the IFOY TEST DAYS in Dortmund, 17 nominees for the International Intralogistics and Forklift Truck of the Year (IFOY AWARD) underwent five days of multi-stage testing. HAI ROBOTICS received two “Best in Intralogistics” certificates in two categories for its HAIPICK A42T and HAIPICK A42N warehouse solution.

The "Best in Intralogistics" seal was introduced three years ago to document visibly to the outside world the high degree of innovation of the products and solutions nominated for an IFOY AWARD that successfully absolve the IFOY test. "Only innovations with this certificate have successfully passed the three-part IFOY audit and have therefore made it to the independent intralogistics test," emphasizes Executive Jury Chairwoman Anita Würmser.

HAI ROBOTICS, the Shenzhen-based company, faced the current challenges of a global pandemic that made it difficult to physically exhibit its products and solutions during the event. In this scenario, HAI ROBOTICS and IFOY realized a digital concept for evaluation based on live streaming and videos that successfully met the requirements of the IFOY organizers and jury.

In a different category, the company presented the HAIPICK A42N warehouse solution. The A42N robot is the world's first autonomous carton-picking ACR to enable mixed picking of cartons and totes of different sizes. It adopts 3D visual recognition technology that allows the robot to locate and directly access totes and cartons without codes. It increases operational efficiency and storage density by enabling vertical space many warehouses waste when not using automation.
