Why AMRs Are More Sophisticated Than AGVs
AMR technology is simply more advanced than its AGV counterpart and in several ways too. The following factors are what earns AMR as the intelligent solution for the modern factory or warehouse:
Intelligent Recognition And Navigation
AMRs will navigate using their own internal maps. The robot can calculate the most linear path in order to pick-up and drop-off components, even if within the proximity of impediments. With intelligent learning and education capabilities, they will choose the optimal path required in even the most irregular of environments. Warehouse material flow can remain on schedule, so customer deadlines can be achieved.
Operational Scalability And Flexibility
Due to the advanced and intelligent navigation capabilities, AMR offers a high level of versatility and adaptability. AMRs are re-deployable, so you can move them to different areas depending on operational business requirements, and they can be simply configured and deployed within their new location. As your business expands and the physical, operational scope grows, scaling activities are simplified using AMRs.
AMRs are technologically superior, but they are nevertheless a cost-effective automated solution. Quick and straightforward to deploy, they do not require downtime throughout their setup and configuration. Warehouses have received a return on investment in as limited a time as six months, even less. Scaling upwards requires insignificant supplementary costs and with no excess additional infrastructure.
Future-Proofing For Agile Firms
All businesses within all sectors are expected to be agile to adequately respond to changing business requirements, and manufacturing businesses are no exception. Being agile is necessary in order to remain competitive. AMRs can be simply implemented and can adjust to alterations in distribution designs and production lines.
