3 key benefits of using AMR robots

When improving internal logistics, you have different options where to invest your money. You can focus on static conveyor belts, or autonomous mobile robots (AMR) or invest in standard handling equipment and operators. Each option has its advantages. Take a look at the 3 main advantages of deploying AMR robots over other alternatives.

Ease of setting up new logistics tasks. In dynamic operations with constant changes in production batches, arrangement of equipment, etc. AMR robots can adapt to changes in the layout (disposition changes) and process flow (changes in the frequency of tasks, no regular production cycles are required). Maps are easily updated and setting up new logistics tasks does not require much effort. In a typical AMR deployment, few items are anchored to the floor and require shifting. Therefore, deploying AMR for different tasks in different areas is just a matter of simple programming.

The main goal of businesses is growth. A deployed AMR system is an investment that can grow with your system. As mentioned earlier, AMR technology can be redeployed and adapted as your business needs change. Increasing the capacity of an AMR system to handle increased demand is also relatively easy. It can be as simple as adding another car to the fleet – more AMR devices. Subsequently, you can leave the AMR control system (fleet management) to take care of the increased logistics requirements by distributing these tasks to several AMR robots. Modern AMR control systems even allow different types of AMR robots to be controlled within one system.

If you walk into any manufacturing facility, chances are you’ll find employee safety statements prominently displayed. AMR devices play a key role in achieving a higher level of employee safety. To complete the task, AMRs plan routes based on the created maps, which are combined with user information defining different “zones” (excluded zones, safe zones, etc.). AMRs also react to unexpected obstacles on routes. These responses (solutions to situations that arise) can be planned and thought through in advance with safety and productivity in mind, rather than in the moment when accidents often occur. This planning can involve all relevant stakeholders including representatives from production, the health and safety department and employees. Incorporating these collective decisions into the way AMR works (stop and wait, stop and bypass) can also help increase adoption and acceptance of this technology.

You too want to discover how AMR robots can contribute to the improvement of your production and logistics system. How they can adapt to changes in your business and grow with it, while contributing to improving overall security, which ultimately leads to better financial results.

AMR robots can handle even complicated production operations. Thanks to the 3D visualization of the logistics system with AMR robots, you can get a much better idea of your considerations. Thanks to the 3D display and simulation model with the possibility of controlling the simulation, changing the display, enlarging or shrinking, you will be able to present your thoughts to your colleagues much more effectively. 3D visualization can look, for example, as in the following example.
