Until recently, AGVs were the only option for automating internal transport tasks. Today, a more sophisticated technology is competing with them: Autonomous Mobile Robots AMR. Although both AGVs and AMRs allow materials to be moved from point A to point B, the comparison ends there.
There are three adaptations we are watching closely at Aethon since we believe they are a trend and may become more permanent. These adaptations will have a significant influence specifically on the use of automation and autonomous mobile robotics.
As this industry is growing more complex, it is important for us to contribute to the conversations around the trends and technologies needed to solve issues around labor shortages and increased demand. Booth #9807
Attendees looking to demonstrate ROI, increase operational excellence, or drive continuous improvement initiatives will see how actionable analytics provide real-time visibility into key performance metrics. Booth #10012
Deployment of an automation solution that takes into account the process needs, the people as well as the technology, ensures businesses can introduce automation that can augment the workers' experience whilst also transforming productivity.
Your AGVs cannot fail, and so the choice of their motorization is crucial. Here are 5 key points to bear in mind when motorizing an AGV.
Various technologies are available on the market for bringing an automated guided vehicle (AGV) to its destination. Let us first of all say: many roads lead to Rome. There is no right way and no wrong way.
Because of the very complex nature of automotive manufacturing AGV vehicles on the plant floor must feature a wide range of standard modules that are configurable to meet automotive customers' automation needs.
The flexibility and easy integration of AGVs with a Fleet Control System, coupled with a minimally invasive installation, mobile robot systems can provide a rapid return on investment and become a substantial contributor to reduced operating expenses.
We will showcase our latest autonomous mobile robot, the MiR500 which will have its American launch at IMTS. MiR500 is designed to automate the transportation of pallets and heavy loads across industries.
For commercial robotics-where hitting a wall or a person with an 800-pound machine would be catastrophic-being confident that the robot is safe, secure, and well supported is critical.
The warehouse robotics market is growing owing to the increased demand for automation, high competition in the e-commerce industry, and the advancement in technology.
Intelligent robots - to be powered by Sprint IoT and 5G - move autonomously to charge electric buses, cars and industrial vehicles
Affordable, highly accurate and extremely reliable sensing systems and controls are fueling the rise of AGV solutions for a wide range of material handling applications in warehouses, factories and industrial facilities.
