Mobile Industrial Robot (MiR) is Changing The Game

Although robots have been improving a wide variety of industries all over the country, many facilities have concerns regarding expenses and programming of the new technology.

Metro Plastics Technologies, Inc. felt that they should share how the MiR200 autonomous robot has impacted their business. The manufacturing company has been a provider of superior custom molding services since 1975. Since that time, the business has grown significantly and with that, they faced new challenges. One of those was how to transport material within the plant to different stages of production without delaying the delivery time of the project to the customer. It all changed when they were introduced to the MiR200 autonomous robot.

With its simplicity to program, durability and ability to work on its own, employees were free to focus on the tasks that will result in the best products. The company quickly realized that the autonomous robot is the most cost and time effective solution. Along with that, the robot has completely eliminated fork lift traffic and the plant has become a safer work environment for employees.

According to the manufacturing company's Project Coordinator Emma Morris, mapping the entire production floor only took 2-3 hours and changing the programming to adjust to the plant’s needs that come with time is extremely easy.

Metro Plastics Technologies, Inc. is one of the many businesses the MiR robot has impacted. If you would like to learn how the MiR autonomous robot can improve your facility, give us a call at (800) 228-2790.
