MiRHook™ Automated Pallet Fork Transport

May 24, 2018

 

MiRHook videoWithin logistics applications, the MirHook™ mobile industrial robot is often used to tow a pallet with a pallet fork. The mobile robot can locate the pallet fork and transport it to it’s destination autonomously. In this way the employees only have to load and unload the pallet from the pallet fork, saving valuable time by not needing to do the transportation themselves.

The MiRHook supports the transport of loads up to 500 kg (1100 lbs) , providing exciting new internal logistics options for weighty or unwieldy cargos. The MiRHook robot identifies carts by QR markers and autonomously transports them as you define.

IXA SCARA Robot from IAI – Fastest in the Industry

Intelligent Actuator Rotating 2-Axis Wrist Unit

September 5, 2017

Ideal for reducing costs when 6-axis robot is not necessary

Wrist Units with logoIAI’s Unique WU Series Wrist Unit design makes it light weight and compact in size.  
Equipped with a battery-less absolute encoder as standard, the WU Series is a low cost alternative, compared to 6-axis articulated robots making it ideal for reducing the cost of equipment.

Diagonal approaches and tip swiveling can now be performed with minimum required axis configuration which until now required a vertically articulated robot.

MiRFleet Centralized Robot Control

July 31, 2017

Easily program robots for multiple tasks

MiRFLeet with logoMiRFleet™ gives you centralized control of robots throughout your facility from a single, user-friendly, web-based interface.

You can easily program and control a fleet of robots, including managing robots with different top modules, hooks or other accessories. Once programmed, the system automatically prioritizes and selects the robot best-suited for a job based on position and availability. SMS or email notifications keep you informed of obstacles or other issues that might prevent the robot from completing a task.
