Providing Enhanced Quality Control with In-House Robots

May 31, 2023

At Exotec®, we produce our autonomous mobile robots in-house. These robots aren’t just any part of our system, they are the core moving component of our Skypod® system, and they play a critical role in transporting inventory throughout the warehouse, which is key to successful order fulfillment. That’s why we don’t outsource their production. Instead, we put great effort, care, and rigorous quality control into creating them right in our own facilities. Now, let’s dive into three significant advantages that our clients receive because we build our robots in-house.

Ensured Quality Control 

By controlling the entire manufacturing process, from design to assembly, we are able to ensure that our robots meet the highest standards of quality and performance. We stand by our motto “almost pass is fail” and never compromise on quality. Each of our robots must pass every step of a rigorous series of test cycles with a score of 100% before being deployed to our client’s sites.

We apply this commitment to excellence throughout every component of our client’s systems, as we meticulously simulate each to ensure its ability to reach target performance. This enables us to provide a contractual guarantee of 98% uptime for each of our clients’ systems, ensuring they can rely on its performance day after day.

Reliable Lead Times

Ensuring that your warehouse’s solution is delivered on time is crucial. By manufacturing our robots in-house, we maintain greater control over our supply chain so you can have greater control over yours. This applies not only to robots purchased during the initial installation of your system, but also to those rented to meet demand during seasonal peaks or purchased to accommodate long-term business growth further down the line.

Trustworthy Partnership

Our ability to manufacture our system’s robots in-house gives us the advantage of being highly adaptable and responsive to customer feedback, so we can make updates to the system based on our client’s needs. When order fulfillment solution providers outsource the most crucial components of their systems, it can result in communication breakdowns between solution providers, suppliers, and clients. This in turn can negatively impact product quality and effectiveness to meet client’s needs. By avoiding such outsourcing, we consistently provide solutions that meet client’s needs now and into the unpredictable future.

Your Warehouse is Complex, Your Automated Solutions Don’t Need to Be
