Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) Conveyors for Small Loads & Applications

Posted by Kevin Mauger | Tuesday, November 26, 2019

When your clients are working with you to integrate lightweight autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), they’re looking for the biggest bang for their buck. 

Nimble solutions that overcome challenges are a top priority for your customer. That’s why we’ve built incredibly flexible AMR conveyor applications that are designed to use minimal battery power while  transferring small loads smoothly, straight to the destination.

Our customizable conveyors for Autonomous Mobile Robots are perfect for moving small loads of materials and product. With simple mounting, our conveyors are easily added to the AMR and can be programmed to work precisely for your integration. Whether your end users are moving small items like electronic components, or small completed products such as insulin pumps, we have a customizable, project-specific solution.



 

Why Does an AMR Need a Conveyor?

 

The  conveyor  add-on to  an AMR is  a cost- effective automation option with a high ROIYour client is on board with the AMR revolution. They are using the devices to automate their factory or warehouse floor. So why do they need conveyors on their AMR’s?

AMR conveyors enhance the benefits of employing Autonomous Mobile Robots. The conveyor addition can perform some of the remaining manual labor, including transferring the product from vehicles to workstations and vice versa. This conveyor add-on to an AMR  is a cost-effective automation option with a high ROI. 

Replacing additional manual operations with automation using flexible, reliable and smooth-operating conveyors as part of the AMR they’re already adding is a simple way to reduce cost and enhance productivity.
