Mir500 builds a taxi like internal logistics automation

Kverneland group, the world's leading international supplier of agricultural machinery equipment and services, receives more than 100000 pallets loaded with materials and components every year. The materials and components in the pallet will be processed and assembled into finished agricultural machinery and equipment in the factory, and then transported out of the warehouse through containers. Gran group's production plant in Feiying Island, Denmark, covers an area of 55000 square meters and has about 500 employees. There are also a large number of power pallet trucks and lifters shuttling in the production workshop to transport materials. In order to improve the working environment and improve production efficiency, the factory is currently using Mir collaborative mobile robots to reduce internal logistics transportation vehicles

there are many ways to transport pallets between production areas within the factory. In the past, fixed roller conveyors and chain conveyors, manually operated pallet trucks or stackers, pallet lifters and forklifts were commonly used in the industry to carry materials through pallets between different departments

Glen group, the global supplier of agricultural machinery and equipment, chose to use quiet and modern robot technology without manual operation to complete this work. By deploying mir500 autonomous mobile robot to transport hard components, the workshop working environment can be significantly improved. Mikael Broberg, an operator of Gran factory in central Denmark, confirmed this to us. Mikael Broberg has worked in the Glen factory for 33 years. As a metal processing and robot welding workshop operator, he is happy that he no longer needs to be distracted by the stackers and pallet trucks shuttling back and forth in the workshop

save five more hours per week for equipment production

Michael Broberg said that mir500 robot saved me at least five hours of material delivery time per week, and now the workshop environment is quieter. I used to go 15000 to 17000 steps to update the technology of Jinan assay at work every day. I don't miss those days when I need to go to the pallet stacker to transport materials. Now, I can focus on planning and production work, which is obviously more valuable than taking the time to go to the materials department to transport components and collect empty pallets. This robot helps us reduce the workload, optimize the workflow, and improve work safety. I just need to press a key on the robot's control tablet, and it can work as planned

Michael witnessed how technology development can continuously improve the working environment of Glen factory. He was run over several times by a pallet truck and a stacker because the operator looked in the wrong direction, and his foot was stuck once. So he is very concerned about the safety of the workshop. If the grand factory can deploy 1020 mobile robots to replace pallet trucks, the safety of the workshop will be significantly improved, because robots can greatly reduce the risk of collision with people. Michael said

mir500 mobile robot is the same size as the pallet. It can lift and transport materials weighing up to 500 kg each time, and is responsible for transporting and collecting pallets between multiple stations in the Glen factory. It is also equipped with a tray lifter, which can automatically load and unload trays for the tray rack. Mir500 robot can shuttle safely between employees, shelves and pallet trucks 24 hours a day, and travel a large number of kilometers every week instead of employees

in the Glen factory, the planned route of mir500 is 500 meters, and it can go back and forth along the planned route at most four times per hour. It is responsible for transporting the processed components from the processing workshop to the warehouse material department with pallets, and then bringing back the empty pallets. Therefore, mir500 can drive 48 kilometers in the factory every 24 hours, and can automatically change the route when encountering obstacles, so as to avoid delaying the logistics process due to parking. The mir500 robot is also equipped with a 3D camera with a 360 degree scanning angle and the latest laser scanning technology to ensure optimal security

process and flexibility are crucial

the Gran plant produces thousands of machines every year. Before delivering finished machines to customers around the world, they need to deliver more than 2000 pallets a week. Due to frequent production changes, Glen must choose an internal logistics solution with high flexibility

jakob klokker is from the technical production department of Gran factory and is responsible for continuously optimizing the whole production process of Gran factory from receiving materials to warehousing of finished products. Minimizing the number of deliveries of each component and reducing intermediate inventory are important goals. At the same time, the factory is also committed to creating a healthy and highly safe working environment

jakob klokker said: in order to avoid delays in internal order planning, the factory must ensure that materials are delivered to the right location at the right time. We hope to eliminate pallet trucks, because they cost too much in maintenance and man hours, and affect the safety of the workshop. We hope to reduce the accidents of collisions and minor injuries caused by pallet trucks in the past

the benefits of using the robust cooperative robot made by Mir to create automated internal logistics for Glen factory are self-evident. Glen factory is planning to further adopt robot solutions to explore the ideal application scenarios of autonomous mobile robots

mobile robots can liberate production manpower from all cumbersome operations. At present, there are many links in the production process of Gran factory that require operators to transport components to the next process many times a day. Some employees need to drive pallet trucks for a long way during work. The idea of the factory is to make the parts arrive at the target position automatically, so as to avoid the staff near the assembly line spending time accessing the kit containing the required parts. Therefore, the factory will study how to efficiently transport components and where it is suitable to use mobile robots to create a fixed shuttle bus or taxi service to transport parts

pallet truck and robot make way for each other

before deploying mir500 to the production area of Gran factory, Jakob klokker, head of technology production department, told colleagues that a new colleague would be coming to take charge of some material handling work in the metal processing workshop, and stressed that everyone should respect this robot, do not block its moving route, and it will not rob anyone of their work. The factory hopes that everyone can focus on equipment production. Everyone soon accepted and got used to this robot. After understanding how to design the running route and task of the robot, the operation zigzag fatigue experiment can be divided into Rotating Zigzag fatigue experiment, circular zigzag fatigue experiment and plane zigzag fatigue experiment; It can also be divided into 3-point twists, 4-point twists, and cantilever twists. It is not difficult to make fatigue experiments. Mir500 can move around like human beings, and can perform various transportation tasks without setting up closed channels or laying magnetic strips on the floor

there was a pallet truck operator who was suspicious of this new road user in the factory area. He worried that mir500 would hit pedestrians during operation. But in fact, this kind of accident has never happened, because it will stop and wait when it finds a pallet truck coming, without hitting anything
