Businesses of nearly any size and in nearly every industry are looking at automation to help improve competitiveness and employee safety. Manufacturing processes were early targets for automation, and advances in cost-effective, safe, and easy-to-deploy collaborative robots quickly made this type of automation accessible even for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). After seeing fast and substantial return on investment from these technologies, business leaders are now looking to automate other wasteful processes within their organizations.
A prime target is material transportation where there are many possibilities of optimizing processes and workflows significantly with AMRs. AMRs constitute a safe, flexible and efficient alternative to other internal logistics solutions such as AGVs, forklifts and conveyors. MiR is dedicated to help you find the right solution for handling and optimizing your inhouse transportations.
Bossard Shanghai Logistics Centre is focusing on optimizing its internal logistics and has deployed 2 MiR100 robots due to the robots' features as safety, flexibility and user-friendliness. The mobile robots are used to transport materials between the warehouse, lab, and workstations, adding new values for the internal logistics by improving "Last Mile Management".
The adaptability of the MiR robots ensure that the robots can be deployed in existing environments without any changes of the facility layout, and this resulted in a fast and smooth integration period: "from the recommendation of MiR robots, to the completion of installation, debugging and personnel training, the whole application process took only a week, which shows the strong adaptability to different systems of the MiR robots," said Ellick Qin, Smart Factory Logistics Manager at Bossard Fastening Solutions
