Autonomous mobile platforms are becoming a more common sight in manufacturing and supply chain operations, but as with any robot, businesses need the right tool for the job. Mobile Industrial Robots ApS has experienced strong growth, but it has not rested on its laurels. The company recently added the MiR500, a larger robot, to its product line.

The MiR500 has a payload capacity of 500kg (1102.31 lb.) and is designed to be easy to use, according to Odense, Denmark-based Mobile Industrial Robots, or MiR.

MiR recently announced that it had reached production capacity for the MiR500 in its first month. The company stated that U.S. manufacturers purchased 40% of its orders as of the end of last year.

Cabka North America, one of the largest manufacturers of plastic pallets, said that it plans to use the MiR500 for moving pallets and to “prepare outbound deliveries at night when there is no activity in the warehouse.”

Denmark-based Kvernland Group, which produces agricultural machinery, credits the MiR500 with helping increase safety and productivity in its 592,000 sq. ft. (55,000 square-meter) factory.
