MiR Launches Two Powerful Autonomous Mobile Robots to Optimize All Logistics

Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), the global market leader in autonomous
mobile robots (AMRs), launched its most powerful robots for transporting
pallets and other heavy items around manufacturing facilities, warehouses
and logistics centers. The MiR600 and MiR1350 robots, which can lift up to
600 kg (1322 pounds) and 1350 kg (2976 pounds), respectively, are designed
to safely and efficiently perform material handling tasks in challenging
industrial environments.

“Customers testing AMRs within their facilities have learned that they want
to transport heavier loads, and that successfully investing in large fleets
for core production demands ever greater levels of reliability, safety and
quality,” said Søren E. Nielsen, president, Mobile Industrial Robots. ”Our
new industrial and robust robots meet these requirements, making them an
easy choice to integrate directly into companies’ workflows.”

First IP52-rated AMRs to tolerate common environmental challenges The
industrial and protected MiR600 and MiR1350 are the market’s first Ingress
Protection52-rated autonomous mobile robots, which means their components
are protected and can tolerate dust and water drops.

“With AMRs increasingly integrated into core productions, downtime is not an
option,” Nielsen said. “Our new AMRs are industry grade and constructed for
a long lifetime with easy serviceability thanks to components and cables
that are industrial and easy to access.”

New AMRs optimize all logistics—inbound, production and outbound The larger
MiR600 and MiR1350 are ideal for autonomously transporting heavy loads of
materials and goods in:

loading bays
production and assembly areas
warehouses
material delivery areas
Like MiR’s other AMRs (MiR100, MiR200, MiR250, MiR500 and MiR1000), the
MIR600 and MIR1350 navigate smoothly and safely among people and other
transport equipment in dynamic surroundings. Sensors, 3D cameras and the
latest laser scanning technology ensure 360-degree vision for precise and
safe navigation and operations. The new AMRs are designed to comply with the
industry’s latest safety standards, including ISO 3691-4 and ANSI/RIA
R15.08-1-2020.

“Many companies now integrate our mobile robots as an alternative to manned
forklifts, which can be expensive to staff and dangerous to operate,”
Neilsen said. “The streamlined transport provided by AMRs frees employees to
carry out more value-creating activities and support processes in production
while they increase shop floor safety.”

Out-of-box solutions to meet demand for scalability and adaptability
Future-proof logistics solutions must fit seamlessly into operational
processes and adapt flexibly to new workflows and environments. The AMRs
from MiR are highly flexible and can be deployed with different top modules
for customized applications.

While many companies ask for adaptable robot platforms, others request
out-of-the-box solutions that can be used in multiple types of workflows or
diverse customer sites. To ease implementation, MiR offers a number of lift
top modules for the MiR600 and MiR1350. These top modules enable the AMRs to
pick up and drop off pallets and carts for easy integration and scalability
throughout the entire value chain.
