RMT Robotics Announces New ADAM Autonomous Mobile Robot Sales Agent Agreement in Italy

RMT Robotics adds MIBA as an official partner in the sale and promotion of ADAM robots

Grimsby, Ontario, Canada (June 12, 2012) - RMT Robotics® (www.rmtrobotics.com), a Cimcorp Oy company and the manufacturer and integrator of ADAM™ autonomous mobile robot (AMR) (www.adamrobot.com), has entered into a sales representative agreement with MIBA for the promotion and sale of its ADAM mobile robots in Italy.


MIBA, through its eepos Italy division, will work with RMT to promote and sell the AMR solutions to end users throughout Italy and southern Europe with a strategic focus on applications in manufacturing industries such as original equipment (OE) as well as tier 1 and 2 automotive, electronics, plastics and aerospace.

"We are thrilled to work with MIBA, through its eepos Italy division, to bring the ADAM system to manufacturers in southern Europe," said Bill Torrens, director of ADAM Systems Group, RMT Robotics. "Their experience and connections in the Italian industrial marketplace make MIBA an ideal addition to ADAM's growing global network of promotional partners."

"The ADAM AMR system is a unique and innovative solution that has great potential to transform the way materials are transported in Italian factories," said Adolfo Lorenzi, principal, MIBA. "We are eager to work with RMT to introduce ADAM and promote the many benefits to our customers."

ADAM Autonomous Mobile Robots
ADAM is an AMR that independently performs random origin to random destination transport of work-in-process materials and finished goods in lean manufacturing and assembly applications. ADAM is designed to perform missions autonomously, navigating around fixed and moving objects, free of guide wires, reflectors or transponders.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
