, a drive and automation specialist based in Nuremberg, has announced a cooperation with SESTO Robotics
in Singapore. As a result, Baumüller will strengthen its system and solution business through Baumüller Anlagen-Systemtechnik GmbH & Co. KG with autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).
AMRs are flexible transportation solutions for many different application areas, including intralogistics, machine tending, test and diagnostics technology and the pharmaceutical and health care sector.
The AMRs can be equipped with different payloads up to 300kg and increase productivity in production and logistics through shortened walkways, faster transportation times and flexibility in the use of materials and tools. As an experienced systems supplier, Baumüller can contribute its know-how for successful and smooth integration of SMRs into existing production environments.
AMRs can be supplied with collaborative robots (cobots) from various manufacturers, UV and ozone disinfection equipment, scissor lift tables, intelligent racking systems and other individually implementable payloads. They are also suitable for use in clean rooms to Class 100 and come with a rechargeable battery that can power an AMR for up to 10h hours. If the battery charge level falls below a configurable level, the AMR automatically drives to the charging station and requires a maximum of 3hr for a full charge.
Baumüller sells the self-propelled, autonomously navigating vehicles all around Europe. In future the AMRs will take on a large share of in-house tasks and become an important part of networked, automated and intelligent production as Industry 4.0 becomes mainstream.
Furthermore, AMRs with mobile superstructures enable flexibility and agility in the design of work processes that were previously unavailable in the automation market.
