MiR 500

Safe and efficient maneuvering

The collaborative MiR500 safely maneuvers around people and physical obstacles. With its advanced technology and sophisticated software, the robot autonomously navigates to find the most efficient path to its destination. When it meets obstacles, it will automatically re-route to avoid costly lags in logistics processes.

MiR500 is equipped with the latest laser-scanning technology that delivers a 360-degree visual for optimal safety. 3D cameras have a range of 30-2,000 mm above floor level to detect pallets.

✓  Efficient transportation of payloads up to 500 kg with high speed

✓  Optimizes your internal transportation of heavy loads and pallets and allows employees to focus on higher value activities

✓  Eliminates material flow bottlenecks to increase productivity

✓  Maneuvers safely and efficiently around people and obstacles in even highly dynamic environments

✓  Requires no changes to existing facility

✓  Extremely flexible and can be redeployed for different tasks with customized top modules

✓  User-friendly interface that can be programmed without prior experience

Optimize pallet transportation without changing facility layout

With the MiR500 Pallet Lift, the MiR500 picks up, transports and unloads pallets autonomously, freeing up employees for more valuable tasks. There is no need to change the facility layout when operating the MiR500 as the function of wires, magnets or QR codes is replaced by sophisticated navigation software. Simply download CAD files of the facility to the robot or use its laser scanners to create a map - that’s all it takes to ensure a fast and cost-efficient implementation.

A robust robot for the industry

MiR500 is compliant with ISO/EN 13849 and fulfills the EMC requirement for industrial use. The rugged MiR500 is designed for industry use with robust exterior that can withstand dropped cargo and can easily navigate up and down ramps and even through shallow water puddles.
