🚀 Keep your finger on the pulse of robotics - in just 90 seconds!

Welcome to another exciting case study! Today we are talking about the autonomous mobile robots we installed at our customer Dormakaba, a specialist for access control solution. The aim was to ensure that the flow of goods between the production machines and the warehouse can be carried out flexibly and without fixed installations such as conveyor belts. 

Modern AMRs are used for this purpose. These are floor-mounted conveyors that are used to optimize intralogistics and production processes.

But what are the actual mobile robots? There are quite a few different models. Depending on what requirements need to be met. In our experience, the most common robots are those that can transport a payload of 90 to 250 kilos. Increasingly, solutions are now being offered that combine a collaborative robot with a mobile robot. The idea here is that the mobile robot arms can independently load and unload the materials before distributing the goods to different stations. 

In the meantime, there is a wide range of offers. In order to be able to guarantee good quality with our solutions, we obtain our mobile robots from the Japanese company Omron, which offers top service worldwide. 

Often you hear the abbreviations AMR or AGV when talking about mobile robots. These abbreviations are called "Autonomous Mobile Robots" and "Autonomous Guided Vehicle". The difference is that Autonomous Mobile Robots are autonomous in their driving because they do not require fixed tracks or magnetic stripes. Autonomous Guided Vehicles transport goods and commodities along fixed tracks or routes.

Which technology fits better also depends entirely on the environment in which these smart helpers operate. They are particularly well suited to the medical technology sector, for example, where there are specific hygiene regulations, the electronics industry, food and watchmaking. However, it is important for the solution with the busy helpers that the floor is even and clean and accessible without steps. 

If the choice then falls on a mobile robot, it needs a head that coordinates the little helpers. Here, an intelligent master control is necessary with the so-called MES or also called production control system. This system collects and analyzes large amounts of data during the entire production process. In this way, commands are routed from the company level, to the plant level, to the order level and on to the control level. And can thus be executed in a structured manner. At the control level with the fleet manager, the robots can detect obstacles and thus calculate the optimal path to flexibly ensure the most efficient material transport. 

The advantages of mobile robots are increased efficiency through the automation of production processes. The flexibility of networked production allows the solution to quickly adapt to market conditions, customer requirements and technological developments. An additional important advantage is the cost reduction through better utilization of machines and equipment. This also results in lower energy consumption.

Whether for material transport, inspection tasks or special industry requirements such as hygiene or precision - the variety of possibilities with robots results in customized solutions for almost every company. By selecting the right robot, efficiency can be increased, costs reduced and specific requirements met.
