Motion Controls Robotics Joins Mobile Industrial Robots Certified System Integrator Program

Motion Controls Robotics designs, builds and integrates robotic automation systems for a variety of industries. Leveraging decades of experience, MCRI integrates robot systems to deliver complete end-of-line applications, fulfillment solutions and general material handling automation that offers the latest in Industry 4.0 connectivity options .

Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) develops and markets collaborative and safe autonomous mobile robots (AMR) that quickly, easily and cost-effectively manage internal logistics, freeing up employees for higher value-added activities.

Today’s business environment faces a myriad of operational and workforce challenges and companies are finding automation solutions, like AMRs, that give them the competitive edge they need. MCRI sought this partnership because MiR offers a variety of safe AMR models that meet the varied needs of industries and distribution centers. The models are designed to optimize logistics throughout the production chain, from warehouse to delivery of goods.

This partnership means that MCRI will be able to offer its customers safe, collaborative and autonomous mobile robots to increase the efficiency of operations and, at the same time, see a rapid return on investment. MiR’s certified system integrators have the knowledge to implement collaborative, autonomous mobile robots in facilities requiring anywhere from a small material handling solution to a full factory transport.

“Adding the mobile industrial robot product line to our existing end-of-line, fulfillment and distribution center solutions automation efforts, as well as our Industry 4.0 connectivity packages, gives us a unique advantage in the industry,” said Scott Lang, President and CEO of MCRI.

MCRI is developing a Customer Solutions Center at its headquarters in Fremont, Ohio to demonstrate the capabilities of the MiR AMR to customers interested in adding this type of automation to their systems.
