ROEQ, a Danish developer of mobile robotic equipment for fully automated internal logistics, has announced the launch of two products to be used in conjunction with MiR autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
Designed to transport heavy loads in manufacturing settings, such as automotive or furniture industries, ROEQ’s new TMS-C1500 top module combined with company’s new S-Cart1500W shelf cart increases the payload capabilities of MiR’s MiR500, MiR600, MiR1000 and MiR1350 AMRs.
Using the TMS-C1500 top module, a MiR1000 or MiR1350 AMR can be deployed on applications with payloads of up to 1,500kg, enabling MiR AMRs to be deployed in applications with heavier payloads than before.
Similarly, the TMS-C1500 allows a MiR500 or MiR600 AMR to be deployed on applications with payloads of up to 800kg, an increase on the 400kg payload supported by other MRE systems for the two AMRs.
According to ROEQ, the TMS-C1500 can pick up and drop off the shelf cart in free space and with precision, eliminating the need for a docking station and ensuring that the AMR is not left idling as it can drop off the cart and immediately pick a new one up.
What’s more, the TMS-C1500 comes with the ROEQ Assist software tool, which is fully compatible with MiR’s software, thereby reducing integration time. Designed to simplify integration, enhance productivity, and streamline the setup, ROEQ Assist software loads pre-coded missions into the MiR robot, which can then be modified in the MiR interface, resulting in quick and consistent application deployments for robust AMR setups throughout your facility.
“ROEQ standardised mobile robotic equipment solutions are designed to unleash the full power and potential of AMRs for companies of all sizes and the latest additions to our product family is a testament to that,” said Michael Ejstrup Hansen, managing director of ROEQ.
“The TMS-C1500 provides a powerful boost for an AMR’s payload capabilities, enabling end users to repurpose compact AMRs for applications involving the transport of larger and heavier items, ensuring substantial cost savings, faster ROI and reduced total cost of ownership compared to alternative solutions.”
The TMS-C1500 plus S-Cart1500W enables the AMR to handle different sizes and types of payloads and with a cargo area larger than a US pallet, the cart has increased tilt stability with wheels placed further apart, enabling safe deployments.
