When your clients are working with you to integrate lightweight autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), they’re looking for the biggest bang for their buck. 

Nimble solutions that overcome challenges are a top priority for your customer. That’s why we’ve built incredibly flexible AMR conveyor applications that are designed to use minimal battery power while  transferring small loads smoothly, straight to the destination.

Our customizable conveyors for Autonomous Mobile Robots are perfect for moving small loads of materials and product. With simple mounting, our conveyors are easily added to the AMR and can be programmed to work precisely for your integration. Whether your end users are moving small items like electronic components, or small completed products such as insulin pumps, we have a customizable, project-specific solution.


Why Does an AMR Need a Conveyor?

Your client is on board with the AMR revolution. They are using the devices to automate their factory or warehouse floor. So why do they need conveyors on their AMR’s?

AMR conveyors enhance the benefits of employing Autonomous Mobile Robots. The conveyor addition can perform some of the remaining manual labor, including transferring the product from vehicles to workstations and vice versa. This conveyor add-on to an AMR  is a cost-effective automation option with a high ROI. 

Replacing additional manual operations with automation using flexible, reliable and smooth-operating conveyors as part of the AMR they’re already adding is a simple way to reduce cost and enhance productivity.


Glide-Line Conveyors for AMRs are ​Highly Customizable

At Glide-Line, our foundation is built on flexible, innovative conveyor solutions. So when you’re looking for conveyors built to mount on an AGV or AMR to solve a unique challenge, we’re here for you. We offer a full suite of options and add-ons, even on our more compact solutions. Say your client requires open-center conveyor design for their AGV. We have you covered! Lift and rotate options built directly on their AMR? Covered. Multi-strand and multi-drive? Ditto. 

By offering accessories to complement the AMR solutions you’re providing your clients, you save important time and development costs while bringing innovative solutions to your clients’ processes.  Glide-Line offers many flexible options when you’re customizing Autonomous Mobile Robots using conveyors.


We Can Configure You The Right Solution

At Glide-Line, our AMR conveyor applications are highly configurable. This level of customization goes down to the millimeter. We can place conveyors on AMRs as short as seven inches long.

We can quickly configure a solution for you, with lead times half that of our competitors. And if you know exactly what you need, you can quickly configure it yourself using our IMPACT! configuration software. This makes Glide-Line a solid choice for AMR conveyor solutions.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
