Outline of the Case
Medical equipment manufacturer Company E had already introduced an autolator that connected two floors as part of a factory-wide automation project.
As their next step, they were considering automatically receiving the cargo coming out of the autolator using AGV (AMR) and transporting it to the assembly area.
Since there are a dozen or so types of parts, it was essential to determine each one’s type and construct a system that could automatically direct the AGV (AMR) to the corresponding destination.
Furthermore, they wanted to be able to easily change the layout themselves and wanted the AGV to be able to avoid potential obstacles.
We designed, manufactured, and introduced a conveyor-type top module on the autonomous running transport robot MiR200 which fulfilled the user's requests, such as the standards of the autolator and conveyor.
We constructed an AGV (AMR) system that automatically transports parts identified by QR code to multiple destinations in cooperation with the customer's host system.
- ● Automated parts transport between conveyors from the autolator to the assembly area
- ● Contributed to the efficiency of the entire factory by linking with the host system
