Major automaton player snaps up high-payload AMR firm

14 January 2020

Teradyne has completed the acquisition of AutoGuide Mobile Robots, a leading supplier of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs).

Mark Jagiela, President and CEO of Teradyne says: “AutoGuide’s safe, high-payload AMRs for the global forklift market provide a powerful, additional growth engine to Teradyne’s Industrial Automation group. We are happy to welcome AutoGuide to Teradyne and look forward to helping expand their product lineup and accelerate their global growth plans.”

Rob Sullivan, President and CEO of AutoGuide, said: “Joining Teradyne gives us the resources and support to both strengthen our capabilities in North America and expand our reach globally to assist customers who need safe, productive and high-payload material-handling products. Since announcing the acquisition in October, we’ve heard from many potential customers who recognise the flexibility, ease of deployment and superior ROI of our AMRs compared with other options and are eager to engage with AutoGuide to learn more.”

AutoGuide’s Max N10 modular mobile robot platform deploys a ‘reliable and affordable’ natural feature guidance platform with a growing number of application-specific configurations, including tugger, conveyor deck, car mover and pallet stacker.
