Automated tugs

12 April 2021

AS A newly confirmed distribution partner for AutoGuide Mobile Robots, RARUK Automation can now supply modular, high payload industrial autonomous mobile robots (AMR) that can tug or lift high payloads.

The trucks are designed to work alongside any established human and automation workforce; with built-in collaborative safety features.

“Our high payload AutoGuide Mobile Robots are cost-effective workhorses that require no magnetic or RFID infrastructure, making installation and upgrade easy processes,” says mobile robot product manager Ross Lacy. “The AMR can fit seamlessly into any facility and be integrated easily with existing WMS, order management and inventory management applications.”

Central to the new AutoGuide Mobile Robot range from RARUK Automation is the MAX-N Base AMR with tugger and forked vehicle adapters. Developed for manufacturing and logistics, and proven within the automotive sector, the MAX-N Tugger can haul loads up to 6,800kg, while the MAX-N Pallet Stacker can lift payloads up to 1200kg.

In one example a fleet of eight AutoGuide Mobile Robots travel up to 60km per day, transporting around 90 tons of goods and replacing 320 kms of forklift traffic, with ROI achieved in less than two years.
