Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), provider of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), launched two powerful robots for transporting pallets and other heavy items around manufacturing facilities, warehouses and logistics centers. The MiR600 and MiR1350 robots, which can lift up to 600 kg (1322 pounds) and 1350 kg (2976 pounds), respectively, are designed to safely and efficiently perform material handling tasks in challenging industrial environments.
The industrial and protected MiR600 and MiR1350 are Ingress Protection52-rated autonomous mobile robots, which means their components are protected and can tolerate dust and water drops.
Like MiR’s other AMRs (MiR100, MiR200, MiR250, MiR500 and MiR1000), the MIR600 and MIR1350 navigate among people and other transport equipment in dynamic surroundings. Sensors, 3D cameras and the latest laser scanning technology ensure 360-degree vision for precise and safe navigation and operations. The new AMRs are designed to comply with the industry’s latest safety standards, including ISO 3691-4 and ANSI/RIA R15.08-1-2020.
“Customers testing AMRs within their facilities have learned that they want to transport heavier loads, and that successfully investing in large fleets for core production demands ever greater levels of reliability, safety and quality,” said Søren E. Nielsen, president, Mobile Industrial Robots. ”Our new industrial and robust robots meet these requirements, making them an easy choice to integrate directly into companies’ workflows.”
“With AMRs increasingly integrated into core productions, downtime is not an option,” Nielsen said. “Our new AMRs are industry grade and constructed for a long lifetime with easy serviceability thanks to components and cables that are industrial and easy to access.”
“Many companies now integrate our mobile robots as an alternative to manned forklifts, which can be expensive to staff and dangerous to operate,” Neilsen said. “The streamlined transport provided by AMRs frees employees to carry out more value-creating activities and support processes in production while they increase shop floor safety.”
