The collaborative robot (cobot) market is booming with increasingly more companies trying to enhance productiveness, effectivity and drive enterprise progress. With cobots you’ll be able to automate most duties however whenever you add some wheels and pair a UR cobot with a cellular robotic, the probabilities are infinite.
Danish firm Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) makes a speciality of automating inner transport and logistics options and so they at present work with Common Robots to create efficient purposes and options for enterprise. Their MiR100 is designed to optimize workflows, enhance productiveness, and cut back prices.
The MiR100 and our UR3 took middle stage final yr when MiR was offered with the coveted DIRA Automation Award on the tradeshow hi-2015 by the Danish Prime Minister, Lars Løkke Rasmussen. Right here the Prime Minister is taking a stroll with the MiR100 our UR3.
CEO of MiR, Thomas Visti mentioned there are a lot of advantages accessible to corporations that undertake this sort of cellular know-how. The mixture of the MiR100 and the cobot optimizes manufacturing and permits groups and robots to work collectively.
‘As a substitute of getting a robotic arm that’s mounted to at least one place, producers can now combine a MiR100 with a Common Robots’ arm, which might transfer throughout the manufacturing flooring. An amazing possibility for choose and place purposes.
‘Cell robots considerably improve productiveness as a result of staff aren’t taking day out of their day to maneuver components across the manufacturing facility flooring. As a substitute, the components might be moved by cellular robots which is extra environment friendly. With a mix like this, staff can spend their time specializing in higher-value duties inside the enterprise.
‘We’re seeing this collaboration predominantly getting used within the manufacturing trade, nevertheless, there’s potential for it for use throughout a broad vary of industries sooner or later. Supermarkets for instance would profit significantly from this sort of know-how to maneuver merchandise across the retailer and to assist restock cabinets.
‘The MiR100 and the cobots help one another properly, they’re straightforward to make use of, arrange and so they use the identical batteries. The pliability, low price, and quick return on funding make this sort of automation very interesting to enterprise house owners’, Visti mentioned.
Taiwan’s largest photo voltaic vitality automation gear producer, CASTEC Worldwide Corp has developed i-Operator, a robotic additionally built-in with Common Robots UR5 and UR10 robotic arms.
