Mobile Industrial Robots and AutoGuide Mobile Robots Merge to Simplify Automation of Customers' Internal Logistics with Full Portfolio of Safe, Collaborative AMRs
Under the Mobile Industrial Robot (MiR) name and led by Walter Vahey, the two Teradyne companies become a single supplier of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), accelerating technology development and market leadership worldwide
As companies continue to integrate more automation into their warehouses and DCs, the need for intelligent sensors to monitor and guide that equipment in a very safe, efficient, and productive manner will also increase.
AGV's and AMR's address a number of key manufacturing process and facility-related concerns as well as key cost-related metrics in the migration towards continuous improvement philosophies such as lean manufacturing and six sigma.
Now, G2P is evolving. The latest tote-to-person AMR (T2P AMR) solutions enable robots to bring individual totes to pickers, instead of whole racks.
Because there is such a shortage of fork truck drivers for the foreseeable future, automation has become an imperative. The only alternative is to automate bringing loads of finish goods (or sub-assembly) from docks to warehouses and warehouse to docks.
We have been hearing a lot about AGVs and AMRs in warehouses and fulfillment centers. But do you understand the differences between these two? Let's find out from the experts.
The project features multi-floor robot collaboration, as well as fully integrated digital operations for the first time, setting a new benchmark in terms of scale and complexity.
As the labor pool continually changes and work environment standards become higher, it is becoming more difficult to attract and retain employees that are willing to perform repeatable, monotonous tasks.
The INVATABOTICS fleet will provide enhanced automation processing capabilities to Invata customers in the areas of order fulfillment, returns processing, mobile storage and retrieval, sortation and transportation, and pallet, case, tote, and unit picking.
Downtime is particularly costly in an operation that relies on carefully coordinated logistics, so optimizing charging times and speeds based on operational needs is very advantageous.
Can you be assured that each AMR in your fleet will position itself consistently to reliably pick up or deliver goods from your conveyor systems, exchange a pallet, or perform any number of automation tasks?
In the age of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0, intralogistics plays an increasingly important role. The precise transport of goods and materials will become a key factor in efficient production.
Advanced 3D lidar sensors emit pulsed light waves into the surrounding environment. These pulses bounce off surrounding objects and return to the sensor. The sensor uses the time it took for each pulse to return to the sensor to calculate the distance it traveled.
In 2022 logistics will overtake manufacturing as the largest user of mobile robots. But this disguises a key trend: AMRs are making major inroads into factories.

Simpler, stronger, and more precise. ATI Industrial Automation has developed a series of Manual Tool Changers that provides a cost-effective solution for quickly changing tools by hand. They feature a unique design that combines high strength, excellent repeatability, and a patent-pending screw-cam locking mechanism with multiple fail-safe features, which resists vibration and prevents loosening. These robust and compact Manual Tool Changers can handle payloads up to 80 pounds (36 kg) and pass pneumatics and electrical signals.
