Warehouse Automation Capabilities
Autonomously unload inbound trucks and shipping containers. Stretch™ quickly identifies cases and places them on a conveyor, moving up to 800 cases per hour. Its mobile base and long reach allow it to work through the full container with ease.
"With Stretch, we will enhance the movement of freight through our facilities while providing a safer environment for our employees."
Sid Brown, CEO, NFI
"We’re excited to partner with Boston Dynamics to deploy its best-in-class robotics in our warehouses. The Stretch robot addresses complex industry challenges through flexible automation, which we’ll be able to replicate and scale regionally and globally.”
Sally Miller, CIO, DHL Supply Chain North America
Mobile and Compact
With full mobility and a footprint the size of a pallet, Stretch is built to maneuver in and out of trucks and tight spaces in a warehouse.
A charge powers Stretch through a full shift, or up to 16 hours on an extended battery option, keeping the flow of goods moving during surges in demand.
Fast and Easy Deployment
Stretch can be installed and put to work, in existing warehouse infrastructure, in just days. No pre-programming of box sizes or SKU numbers is needed.
Advanced Vision and Gripper
An advanced vision system detects boxes and container surroundings, while a powerful gripper handles packages up to 50 pounds.
Palletizing & Depalletizing
Mobile, complex depalletizing with intelligent machine learning computer vision. Quickly depalletize and singulate cases, cartons, and trays from single, rainbow, and mixed-SKU pallets.
Build up pallet orders for retailers and e-commerce fulfillment centers. With a small, mobile base, Stretch navigates warehouse aisles to build single and multi-SKU pallets. Pack cases tightly and carefully with Stretch’s contact detection and force control capabilities.
