Warehouse Automation: Automatic Guided Vehicles & Autonomous Mobile Robots

The two may seem very similar, however, several key factors set an AGV and an AMR apart. The biggest difference between the two comes down to how they move through a facility.

Is RaaS the way to go?

Back in 2017, the International Data Corporation (IDC) predicted that 30 percent of commercial robotic applications will be in the form of Robots as a Service (RaaS) by 2019. Was this forecast accurate?

MiR200 Improves Safety, Quality, and Competitiveness at Metro Plastics

Using the robots built-in Wi-Fi interface, operators will use tablets installed at each press to call the robot to pick up finished products and take them directly to the quality department, optimizing the robots use.

What's Driving Assembly Line AGVs?

Were even seeing companies with millions of dollars in chain-based conveyance move to AGVs. As this trend continues to advance, we see manufacturers gaining unprecedented flexibility that will allow them to quickly respond to market changes in a way thats smart, cost-effective, and safe.

Big Picture Processes Impact Efficient Lineside Delivery

The self-driving vehicle (SDV) using an autonomous guidance system breaks free of magnetic strips and pre-programmed routes.

Why Industry 4.0 Will Leave AGVs Behind

Industry 4.0 capabilities enable flexible technologies to take the factory floor: self-driving vehicles offer flexibility, proactive planning, collaboration, and adaptive behaviours.
