Energy efficiency is an increasingly prominent concern as electronics adoption and environmental consciousness both rise. Robotics must consume less energy to sustain their growth in the future.
Automation in the supply chain isn't a new phenomenon, but it carries new urgency now. What was once a competitive edge is now a necessity. Robotics will power the logistics industry this year, and here's how.
By collating all the robots onto one platform, we can enable the robots to operate collectively rather than individually. If all the robots are on one platform and under one traffic control, they will be able to share their location and become very efficient.
The Schneider Electric Polska plant deals with the production of low voltage apparatus switches and accessories for these products. They have implemented an autonomous mobile robot MiR500 that transports finished products between the production line and the warehouse.
While AMRs can be deployed in existing warehouse and distribution centers, some considerations should be considered to ensure they navigate and perform at their peak. Specifically, the durability and condition of the flooring upon which they travel.
An AMR without a top module is like a robotic arm without an end-effector tool such as a gripper-it lacks functionality. The benefits of AMRs are only realized-and maximized-with top modules and high-quality gates and carts that transfer the transported materials.
As barriers between human activities and robotic capabilities diminish - moving beyond the fenced activities of last-generation industrial robots - new collaboration and workflow models are bringing humans and robots together in industry.
Mobile robots in warehouses help companies increase their output and meet customer demands, allowing the companies to maintain a competitive advantage. Specific characteristics make warehouse environments particularly well-suited to these mobile machines.
To manage growth in eCommerce and its associated challenges retail companies will need to embrace automation. Smart logistics provider Geek+ and market research firm Interact Analysis cooperated to create a whitepaper to discuss the future for smart logistics automation.
When your clients face unique challenges using AMRs in their processes, a conveyor attachment may help their process to be more efficient. Here are seven important questions to ask before selecting a manufacturer for your AMR multi-strand conveyors.
When your clients are working with you to integrate lightweight autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), they're looking for the biggest bang for their buck.
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.
Brain Corp, an AI company creating transformative core technology in the robotics industry, today announced it has raised $36 million in Series D funding to help meet the growing demand for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) now on the front lines of the COVID-19 health crisis.
Given the proliferation of warehouses, distribution centers, direct to consumer (D2C) business models, fleets of AMRs, questioning the validity of innovation is worthy of examination.
Using a myriad of technology including sensors, lidar, infrared and machine vision, mobile robots are now able to operate in less stable environments. This means that mobile robots are no longer simple, guided machines.

The FAULHABER stepper motor AM3248 raises the bar in terms of performance and dimensions. Offering up to 10,000 rpm, it achieves five times the speed of comparable stepper motors. Combined with a gearhead reduction of 100:1, it supplies a torque of 5 Nm. With a diameter of just 32 mm, it is suited for a wide range of applications in areas such as aerospace, laboratory automation, the semiconductor industry, robotics and 3D printing. Learn more!
