March 16, 2022 – Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) has been appointed to fast businessfrom the prestigious list of the world’s most innovative companies for 2022, ranking third out of 10 in the robotics category. Each year, the publication honors companies that thrive in today’s ever-changing world and have the greatest impact on their industries and culture. MiR, the global market leader in Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR), has been recognized for introducing more powerful and robust robots capable of safely transporting heavier materials in harsh manufacturing and warehouse environments.

“As many industries face ongoing labor shortages, productivity declines and disrupted supply chains, automating more mundane and potentially dangerous material-hauling tasks has become a key solution to stay competitive,” said Søren E. Nielsen, President of MiR. “These new, more powerful autonomous mobile robots offer what more and more companies have been asking for as they build their AMR fleets: the ability to autonomously and safely transport heavier materials in more of environments. We are excited to see how these robots are already increasing the efficiency of our customers. »

The MiR600 and MiR1350, the newest robots in AMR’s safe, reliable and easy-to-use MiR family, can autonomously transport and lift loads up to 600 kg (1322 lbs) and 1350 kg (2976 lbs) , respectively. The first Ingress Protection52 rated AMRs have components capable of handling dust and water droplets typical of manufacturing facilities and warehouses, and are equipped with multiple sensors, 3D cameras and lidar to avoid collisions with human colleagues.

These robots have been a major contributor to MiR’s success in 2021, where the company saw a 42% increase in robot sales compared to 2020. Last year, the company also launched the MiR250 hook, designed to streamline the towing of multiple types of transport carts. The MiR250 Hook, along with the MiR600 and MIR1350, can be integrated into a MIR AMR fleet via MiRFleet, MiR’s fleet management software.

“These technologies continue to play a pivotal role in advancing this young industry as we all learn new ways to deploy AMRs in different facilities, from warehouses and manufacturing plants to hospitals,” Nielsen added. “As we continue to innovate to meet the needs and challenges of our customers, we expect to see even more deploy full fleets of mobile robots in their organizations as they become more confident in the benefits they bring. and see the rapid return on investment.”
