The challenges of transferring a variety of materials on a demanding timeline are growing rapidly across all industries. This ever-increasing demand is creating stress in manual material handling situations, which leads to worker fatigue and, eventually, quality and throughput issues.
Technological advancements are finally providing a solution to this problem in the form of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), which can transport materials throughout dynamic environments on a 24/7 timetable. However, not all AMRs are created equal.
Investing in AMRs can lead to significant gains in productivity and throughput. But before making the investment, it is crucial to consider the payload capacity and process needs of the application. You should also find out about a particular AMR technology's speed, whether it can work in dynamic environments and around people, and whether there is an effective means of coordinating multiple robots in a fleet.
Take a closer look at these 5 Keys.
