The MiR 1000 was launched at the Automate 2019 Show and Conference. In demonstrations, its ability to automatically pick up, transport and deliver heavy loads up to 1000kg through complex, dynamic environments was displayed. It features all the collaborative (Cobot) and safety features that made the MiR 500 a flexible alternative to potentially dangerous, expensive forklifts on factory floors. But the increased payload is an attractive feature of the new model, and the new AI capabilities for all MiR AMRs will be superb for their navigation abilities.
The MiR 1000 joins the industry leader’s portfolio of intuitive, powerful and durable AMRs that handle both heavy and light transport. They are designed to optimise logistics across the production chain, from warehousing to goods delivery. The 100, 200 and 500 models are already in use in more than 45 countries, with large corporations like Airbus, Toyota and Hitachi taking advantage of their capabilities. The 1000 model comes in response to customer demand for machines that can handle heavier materials, as required in the automotive and aerospace industries.
