Autonomous Mobile Robots
Automate Material Handling With Ease
Teradyne’s portfolio of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) automates material handling tasks with payloads from 100 kg (200 lbs) to 4,536 kg (10,000 lbs).
Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) and AutoGuide – subsidiaries of Teradyne – are two of the leading companies in this space. They offer high-performance, easy to deploy solutions that increase the efficiency of in-house transportation and logistics.
The Future of Inventory Management
Through collaborative, flexible technologies, MiR and AutoGuide enable enterprises – both large and small – to automate their material handling. These mobile robots are cost-effective and safe to work around people, offering rapid return on investment and freeing employees from dull, dangerous and dirty tasks.
MiR and AutoGuide offer a broad range of automation solutions, with MiR specializing in low- and mid-payload tasks and AutoGuide focusing on high-payload tasks. Together, they enable Teradyne to provide you with the automation that you need in a world on the move.
Transport Anything Anywhere with AMRs
Addressing a range of low to mid payload tasks, MiR’s autonomous mobile robots streamline material handling in industrial and warehouse operations
Benefits of Autonomous Mobile Robots
Transform Material Handling
AMRs autonomously move inventory quickly and efficiently. Unlike autonomous guided vehicles, which are expensive, rigid and complex to install, autonomous mobile robots are affordable, flexible and safe. AMRs deliver a sustainable solution for labor-intensive material handling tasks – enabling you to lower costs, improve productivity and optimize capacity.
Increase Safety and Improve Collaboration
From low- to high-payload transportation tasks, AMRs enable you to move materials, safely and collaboratively. Built with the top safety features and software on the market, Teradyne’s AMR solutions determine the optimal delivery paths in real-time and integrate easily alongside your people, driving new levels of human-machine collaboration and factory performance.
Work Faster and More Effectively
Autonomous mobile robots give manufacturers and distributors a quick and easy way to automate material handling tasks, increase the accuracy of intra-operational delivery and improve inventory management. Teradyne’s AMR brands offer winning solutions to streamline your operations and achiever a faster ROI.
Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR)
Autonomous Mobile Robots for Low- and Mid-Payload Tasks
A first mover in the AMR space, MiR specializes in low- and mid-payload tasks with solutions that easily transport payloads up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lbs). Its fleet of autonomous mobile robots are easy to install, able to determine optimal delivery paths in real-time and can be programmed for multiple tasks quickly.
Innovative technology and sophisticated software allow MiR robots to autonomously maneuver around obstacles. When the robot meets an obstacle, it automatically moves around it and redirects the route to avoid stopping or delaying the delivery of materials.
With easy programming and deployment, MiR robots lower the barrier for companies to automate their operations. Using an intuitive interface, MiR robots can be programmed without prior experience and are designed to be integrated into your existing ERP system without the need to redefine your workflow.
AutoGuide Mobile Robots
Autonomous Mobile Robots for High-Payload Tasks
AutoGuide designs, develops and manufactures high-payload tuggers and forklifts for assembly, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution operations across multiple industries. AutoGuide’s solutions are capable of transporting payloads of up to 4,356 kg (10,000 lbs.).
AutoGuide’s autonomous tuggers and forklifts are manufactured as standalone platforms – not retrofitted to an existing piece of equipment – resulting in shorter lead times and faster ROI. Uniquely modular architecture enables you to easily scale your logistical workflow, while offering easy deployment, improved safety and increased efficiency of your material handling operations.
Built from the Ground Up
AutoGuide creates the industry’s only complete solution for autonomously moving heavy payloads. This ensures that every part of your solution has been built to work together. Learn how you can improve your operations with autonomous mobile forklifts and tuggers.
Elevating Safety and Productivity
Achieving the perfect manufacturing equilibrium – peak worker safety and productivity – is no easy task. The very nature of manufacturing, which often includes heavy and fast-moving equipment and physical work, takes a toll on people and productivity.
Advanced automation solves this dilemma. Robotic innovation gives manufacturers of all sizes new ways to achieve the ideal state, where workers remain safe and productivity remains high:
- Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) can work alongside people and automate the repetitive, risky and dangerous work – increasing productivity and reducing injuries through automation
- AMRs free the team from monotonous work, positioning people to focus on critical productivity KPIs, including throughput, quality, innovation and overall performance
