AGILOX has announced a new autonomous omnidirectional dolly mover designed to be used by customers who need to carry small loads. The AMR has a payload capacity of 300 kg, or 661 lb., and can reach heights up to 250 mm, or 10 in.
AGLIOX’s other AMRs include the AGLOX One, which has a payload capacity of 750 kg (1,653.47 lb.) and the AGILOX OCF, which has a payload capacity of 1,500 kg (3,306.93 lb.). Like those models, the ODM features AGILOX’s X-Swarm technology, which allows it to share its precise coordinates with other AGILOX vehicles in a facility. It also features the company’s omnidirectional drive concept that enables it to maneuver tight spots.
“AGILOX is a company that has built a strong foundation with the AGILOX ONE and the AGILOX OCF. With the new AGILOX ODM, we remain true to our brand DNA while simultaneously targeting the transport of small load carriers to support our growth plan to become the world's leading AMR provider,” said Andreas Boedenauer, CEO of AGILOX North America, in a statement.
Robots communicate using swarm technology
The robot features autonomous route finding that allows it to avoid obstacles and recalculate on the fly. The company added that the robot does not to be monitored using a central fleet management system and coordinates with other AGLIOX robots using X-Swarm.
“This dramatically improves flexibility, letting the user expand the vehicle's area of operation within just a few minutes,” the company said. “It also means that it is very easy to move an AGILOX AMR to be used temporarily in other areas of the facility or even in subsidiaries.”
The robot can also be integrated into other technologies into a facility the company said.
“Since AGILOX vehicles can also communicate with other technologies installed in the building infrastructure using IO boxes, even rolling doors or multiple floors are no problem for the AMRs,” the company said.
AGLIOX will be at ProMat
AGLIOX will be at ProMat next month in Chicago and will be showcasing AGLIOX ODM in action. The company will be located at booth N7316.
