Iconsys, one of the UK’s leading automation system integrators, has branched out into autonomous mobile solutions with the launch of its iAM-R (iconsys Autonomous Mobile Robot).
The iAM-R is an autonomous mobile robot (AMR), representing the first step for Telford-based iconsys in their journey towards providing autonomous robotic solutions to their customers.
The iAM-R takes automation to a new level and offers a combination of flexible robotic automation with autonomous navigation and delivers a very adaptive solution for manufacturing and logistical processes. Flexible route-planning, intelligent obstacle avoidance and network communication enable the iAM-R to perform tasks independently.
The iAM-R was launched in June at the Made in the Midlands Expo at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry. Showcased to an expectant audience, the robot demonstrated its collaborative machine tending capabilities, it’s flexibility to interface with vision systems and multi-layer technology platforms. A high volume of interest was generated on the day, which led to several requests for onsite demonstrations.
Managing director Nick Darrall, said: “We are delighted to finally launch the iAM-R. Because it is fully customisable, we believe there are all kinds of industrial manufacturers who could benefit from the integration of our mobile robot solutions. The iconsys team is looking forward to working with new customers – and developing further autonomous mobile solutions in the future.”
