In view of the ever-growing demand for autonomous material handling, Interroll has developed an innovation for this application: the new LCP AMR Top module. Two leading mobile robotics companies have already successfully tested this solution and declared it their preferred choice. This solution combines Interroll's proven Light Conveyor Platform (LCP) with an AMR.
The robotics market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 20 percent until 2027. The growth is also fed by the flourishing demand for collaborative robots and the integration of robotics in various areas of logistics.
With the LCP AMR Top Module technology, Interroll once again demonstrates its commitment to pushing boundaries and developing new robotics products - and thus also expanding the market for robotics applications.
The LCP AMR Top Module conveyor module enables the handling of light objects on the AMR and is part of Interroll's modular LCP platform. It provides a seamless physical interface, ensuring a smooth material flow when an AMR is integrated. The end user benefits from the advantages of a complete solution as well as the highest level of customer convenience and a simple integration process.
Setting new standards
AMRs are used in a wide range of applications in areas such as materia handling, production, manufacturing and goods transport. The robots themselves are used in repetitive tasks and can operate in a variety of environments. The new solutions can be integrated very quickly and easily installed at any location.
"The new AMR integration module illustrates our commitment to providing solutions to industry challenges and developing products for fast-growing market environments," says Jens Struewing, Executive Vice President Products & Technology at Interroll. "Undoubtedly, our new LCP AMR Top Module will set new standards for the robotics environment in which we operate."
"Product safety, standards and proven technologies are important building blocks of quality that ensures our customers can rely on our products. That's why we chose to work with Interroll on this project," adds Rasmus Smet Jensen, VP Marketing & Strategy, MiR.
Efficiency, versatility, productivity
The LCP AMR Top Module is a conveyor module that manages the flow of goods with a smooth "handshake" between mobile and stationary conveyor technology. Customers can expect fast response and delivery times when an expansion of their system is required. The LCP Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) consists of two elements and is part of a comprehensive modular light conveyor platform. The Interroll conveyor add-on module on the AMR has been developed based on many years of experience in unit load conveying and is part of Interroll's proven LCP solution.
"We are delighted to partner with Interroll in this area," says Daniel Rossek, EMEA System Integrator Manager OMRON Europe. "With its state-of-the-art technology and customisation capabilities, the LCP AMR Top module will help achieve new levels of efficiency, versatility and productivity."
Interroll looks forward to continuing to work with all robot manufacturers and system integrators working with such AMR solutions to further enhance customer success.
The Interroll Lifetime Service Team will support system integrators and end users during the initial installation of the LCP AMR Top module and throughout the lifetime of the solution. Production of the LCP AMR Top module will start in Europe this year, with other regions to follow.
