Autonomous mobile robots: Improve manufacturing intralogistics

As EV manufacturers engineer and ramp up their production lines, intralogistics – moving materials from warehouse to storage to production – will benefit from the latest manufacturing automation technology. Bosch Rexroth’s expanding portfolio of autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) are designed to help improve material movement efficiency and worker safety in intralogistics applications, without additional infrastructure. Our MP1000R AMR includes:

  • A compact design ideal for tight turning spaces
  • A max payload of 1,000 kilograms
  • 360-degree obstacle detection and front-and-rear anti-collision bumpers
