The customer is a world-famous equipment manufacturer of office supplies. The history of the group headquarters in Japan is over 100 year, and its business is all over the world, which achieves the turnover of 631.8 billion yen per year.
However, like most manufacturers, it is facing the problem of automatic and digital production: how to maintain market competitiveness with flexible production ability.
In one of its world largest manufacturing factories, manual feed trolleys are used by the customer to transport materials between the production line side warehouse and each assembly line. The customer hopes to optimize productivity with automation and digitalization, and ensure the workers to be able to complete more value-added tasks at the same time.
The customer has deployed several EMMA AMRs of IPLUSMOBOT. Without manual intervention, AMRs can accurately receive and executive the tasks of material sending by full-load trolleys and regain of empty ones assigned by operators with call box, and feedback the information to MES system. In the process of identifying trolleys by the robot, the placement variance of ±15cm is tolerated. Stopping and bypassing the obstacle autonomously can be achieved by the integrated navigation technology, which combines laser SLAM and the fusion of vision and IMU。
The customer has raised the productivity and utilization efficiency of the production line side warehouses with ROI less than 2 years. At present, the customer has deployed more EMMA AMR based on the successful case.
