ROEQ autonomous mobile robot modulesClick image to enlarge

ROEQ has introduced two new modules to enhance the payloads and lifting capabilities of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) manufactured by Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR).

The new ROEQ TMS-C1500 allows MiR AMRs to transport up to 1500 kg for the first time. Combined with the new S-Cart1500W shelf cart, the TMS-C1500 greatly increases the payload capabilities of MiR’s MiR500, MiR600, MiR1000 and MiR1350 AMRs.

Using the TMS-C1500 top module, a MiR1000 or MiR1350 AMR can be deployed on applications with payloads of up to 1500kg, enabling MiR AMRs to be deployed in applications with heavier payloads than ever before. Similarly, the TMS-C1500 allows a MiR500 or MiR600 AMR to be deployed on applications with payloads of up to 800 kg, a massive increase on the 400 kg payload supported by other MRE systems for the two AMRs.  

ROEQ has also launched the top module TML200 with a stroke of 40mm that can lift loads carried by the MiR250 AMR. This addition to the ROEQ Top Module Lifter family can lift and transport crates as well as pallets, racks and ROEQ shelf carts. Additional accessories that support a wide range of applications—such as those incorporating pick up and drop off via bar marker (PR250 pallet rack), free space pick up and drop off (S-Cart300L Cart), and the pickup of uneven bottomed cargo, such as half Euro-pallets (TML200 Forks)—allow the MiR250 to be used across a wider range of application scenarios, often eliminating the need to add more expensive solutions such as conveyors. In addition, the TML200 comes with a pickup cargo sensor feature that prevents it from picking up additional cargo if the TML200 is already loaded.
