Robotics company iFollow will be showcasing its autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) at the co-located IntraLogisteX 2023 and Robotics and Automation exhibitions, which will take place in Hall 6 at the NEC Birmingham on 28-29 March 2023.
“This is the first time that IntraLogisteX and the Robotics and Automation events will be held together, in addition to the shows making their debut at the National Exhibition Centre,” said Frazer Watson, country manager for UK and Ireland, iFollow.
“This gives the iFollow team an exciting opportunity to discuss and demonstrate the latest agile intralogistics techniques involving robots, which are essential for picking duties and a broad range of applications in different sectors including retail, manufacturing and logistics.
“We will also be able to inform visitors of the benefits of a new turntable solution for iFollow’s AMRs.
“The AMR solutions that we will be showcasing are beneficial for picking and internal transport within warehouses and distribution centres.
“Mobile robots act as a picker’s right hand for collaborative and autonomous order picking in logistics and industrial environments.
“From a health and safety perspective, they carry the weight that might otherwise lead to risk of musculoskeletal disorder in personnel.
“This will not only result in better working conditions for staff, but also higher productivity.
“We look forward to meeting you on Stand i312.”
Designed and made in France, iFollow’s AMR range is capable of transporting a range of different storage units, including pallets, trolleys and roll cages, and are able to carry two roll cages at once in cold stores and ambient warehouses.
According to iFollow, this makes them an ideal productivity boosting solution for food, grocery and retail logistics.
For those in attendance hoping to upgrade their cold room machinery, iFollow’s robots are designed to operate in temperatures from -25°C to 40°C without degradation of battery life. They are also designed to navigate rough floors without damage.
In addition to this, the company has said it can ensure the absence of condensation, even when the machines move from a very cold environment to a temperate space.
What’s more, at 17cm (6.6in) high – approximately half the height of other AMRs – the robots have the added feature of reduced height, which can be beneficial when carrying roll cages.
