MC MiRs New AMR Maximizes Efficiency 1 400x275

Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. supplies autonomous mobile robots, or AMRs, manufactured by Mobile Intelligent Robots (MiR). The latest, most powerful AMR from this producer is the MiR1350, which offers a high payload that allows efficient transportation of pallets and heavy items. Its robust design ensures long life and easy serviceability.

Designed according to the latest safety standards, this unique solution by MiR navigates smoothly and efficiently within dynamic work environments.

Specially designed pallet lifters

The MiR1350 distinguishes itself with a payload of 1,350 kilograms, which helps users to maximize the efficiency of logistics operations. Its IP52 rating denotes a superior ability to withstand dust and liquid. Other key specifications: maximum speed of 1.2 meters per second; run time of nine hours and 50 minutes; length of 1.35 meters; and width of 91 centimeters.

The unit’s specially designed pallet lifters allow it to pick up, transport, and deliver pallets automatically. This makes the MiR1350 a safer alternative to standard pallet lifters and trucks, which often pose hazards in manufacturing plants. Unlike traditional pallet lifters, this AMR from Advanced Motion & Controls needs no operating crew, which optimizes pallet transport and allows workers to focus on more productive jobs.

The robot maneuvers around all kinds of obstacles, stopping immediately when an employee blocks its path. Its advanced technology and software enable autonomous navigation into the most efficient routes; the MiR1350 automatically redirects and reroutes when encountering obstacles, to prevent delays in material delivery.

MiR has equipped the device with the most up-to-date laser-scanner technology, and its 360-degree vision also improves safety. The two three-dimensional front cameras allow the MiR1350 to see from 30 millimeters to two meters above the floor, while two sensors in each corner enable views of pallets and obstacles that are extremely low.

This user-friendly AMR gives users full control from the start, operated by the intuitive MiR Robot Interface through a Smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Users can program the MiR1350 based on previous applications and integrate it into an ERP system, which enables the creation of fully automated solutions.

MC What to Consider When Choosing a New Motion Control Solution 1 400x275

When it’s time to consider a new motion control solution for your application, rule #1 is “Solve the problem, then worry about the design.”

This is easier said than done, but not if you apply a disciplined, time-tested framework. First, you must clearly understand the problem and the local environment. Failure to do so often results in a suboptimal motion control solution or complete failure.

Secondly, the designer should evaluate the application in light of proven existing motion control solutions. The engineer must also take stock of their skills and the expertise of the team in order to effectively choose the right options and to accurately anticipate development time and resources.

Before choosing any motion control products, the design engineer needs a set of principles to guide his or her selection. Long term experience and common sense has taught us seven important, but often overlooked, principles. 

These key learning have been encapsulated in a simple notion known as the SHAIRED paradigm:

  • •Simplicity of design to reduce problem-causing complexity and cost
  • Homework; calculate the required torque, inertia, duty cycle, etc.
  • Analysis of the application and alternatives must be thorough
  • Integration of the system into existing factory automation
  • Redundancy built in to a system to exceed performance expectations and deal with unexpected changed in load and operating parameters
  • Economical solution for the short and long term.
  • Development time must be accurately estimated

Using the above guidelines during motion control system design, evaluation of alternatives, and final product selection will help increase the odds of application success.
