‘Namla’ is designed and made in the UAE
As part of its commitment to the UAE’s ‘Operation 300bn Strategy’ to develop the country’s industrial sector and encourage production of ‘Made in the UAE’ brands, prominent warehouse automation solutions provider Acme Intralog recently launched a locally manufactured Radio Shuttle system named ‘Namla’.
Meaning ‘ant’ in Arabic, Namla is inspired by the natural intelligent system employed by nature’s tiny creatures–ants, who diligently carry items from one place to another, a press communique noted.
“Namla is hundred percent made in the UAE by Acme. It is the only robotic Radio Shuttle that is locally manufactured in the country, and I am proud of this pioneering initiative by our team. Our new generation Radio Shuttle can drastically improve pallet storage density for standard pallets of up to 1,500 kg,” affirmed Navin Narayan, CEO, Acme Intralog.
“Customised options for specific needs and higher load requirements are available on request. Namla improves productivity as well as safety of operations in a high-density distribution centre,” he continued.
The semi-automated system can be handled by forklift in a customised rack. Namla can be operated remotely with an industrial grade touch panel that allows for quick task management. The Li-ion battery is designed to last through a typical shift operation of a distribution center for a minimum of eight hours. The batteries are easily interchangeable for continuous operation.
Acme also offers a Namla polar edition, which operates safely in harsh temperatures and can be deployed by the cold storage industry, operating safely between -30 to + 40 degrees, the press statement continued.
“We have had a great response for Namla from our clients and we are currently looking for regional distributors and integrators for our Radio Shuttle,” concluded Narayan.
