ROEQ develops top conveyor module for MiR500 autonomous mobile robot
May 3, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
May 3, 2019 – ROEQ has developed a new conveyor top module for use on Mobile Industrial Robots’ (MiR) MiR500 autonomous mobile robot.
The TR500 Top Roller conveyor eliminates the manual loading and unloading of the robots at departure and delivery stations.
The TR500 accommodates standard North American pallets and can be delivered with a fully automated lifter functionality for pick-up and delivery of goods in heights ranging from 23.6 inches (600 mm) to 29.5 inches (750 mm).
The Top Roller integrates with MiR’s own user interface where all control functions are embedded; when the robot is called to deliver or pick up goods, the conveyor communicates with the pick-up and delivery stations and will automatically activate the loading or unloading upon arrival.
ROEQ is rapidly expanding its North American distributor network, with Shelley Automation as its partner in Canada.
ROEQ also recently launched the TR125 Top Roller that is designed for the MiR200 robot. The TR125 is a solution for carrying products packed in cardboard boxes, plastics containers, etc.
The company has also launched a host of other add-ons for MiR, including docking stations, lifts, and the ROEQ C300 cart, which robots can use to collect loaded carts, deliver them to the designated docking station and leave them there to be emptied or prepared for the next mission.
