As the manufacturer of ResinDek® panels, we have been at the forefront of testing and innovating flooring panels for the Material Handling Industry since 1994. In 2007, we began providing ResinDek panels for automated warehouse distribution robots. Much of our initial research and development occurred with Automated Guided Vehicles. In the last decade, we have provided a variety of ResinDek engineered flooring products to numerous Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) manufacturers for their testing labs. As a result, millions of square feet of ResinDek panels are in service worldwide with robotic traffic in distribution centers, warehouses, microfulfillment centers, and retail environments.

We know that the durability and condition of floors are important for optimal performance of AGV's and AMR's. Coefficient of friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak performance. That's why we go to great lengths to extensively test internally and send our products to be evaluated by independent laboratories as well as the robotic manufacturers. In addition, we can customize the finish for any specification required.

+ Stand-Up Screwdriver for Engineered Fasteners

Designed specifically for panels that are secured from their top surface, Cornerstone's stand-up screwdriver works with collated strips of ResinDek® engineered fasteners. Together, the system cuts fastening costs by up to 40%, while its ergonomic design significantly reduces fatigue during installation.

Other stand-up screwdriver advantages include:

  • Greater control over settings to achieve more consistent screw depth
  • Easy setup and assembly
  • Collated strips of fasteners are easy to load
  • Bit tip replacements are fast and simple to install
  • Intuitive operation cuts training time
  • Includes case for safe transport and storage when not in use
  • Warrantied for 1-year by manufacturer

+ Collated Screws for Corrugated Metal Deck

Designed for applications in which ResinDek® panels are installed over structural metal B-Deck decking, Cornerstone's engineered fasteners work best with roll form beams and structural steel less than 3/16" thick. B-Deck valley widths less than 2-1/2" may not accommodate Cornerstone's stand-up screwdriver. Contact Cornerstone Specialty Wood Products for more guidance and recommendations.

Notes:

  • The fastening systems detailed above are intended for ResinDek® LD, MD and HD.
  • Other fastening systems are offered. Contact Cornerstone for details.

How Do Autonomous Mobile Robots Work?

Autonomous mobile robots work using a laser light to bounce off the surrounding environment so that it can detect any obstacles in the robot's physical space. This allows the robot to have a map of the surrounding area and its work environment. Large obstacles are easy for the robot to avoid but cracks in a concrete floor may not be as easy to detect and could cause damage to your autonomous mobile robot and potentially delay productivity ResinDek warehouse decking panels help to reduce the risk of these potential hazards by providing a flat, level flooring surface with long lasting durability.

What Are The Different Types of Autonomous Mobile Robots?

AMRs are used for a variety of different tasks and applications. AMRs can be used for the following applications:

  • AMRs that assist with the order picking process in a warehouse
  • AMRs that transport inventory and products within a facility.
  • AMRs that assist with sortation, such as high speed parcel sortation, Ecommerce order fulfillment and short-term sortation
