An Introduction to AMRs and IMRs Industrial Mobile Robots



Across all manufacturing sectors there is a growth in automation as systems are introduced to increase efficiencies. While robotics manufacturing quickly grows, so do the safety standards and regulations required to ensure safety.

This webinar is an introduction to the sort of tasks that are performed by Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) and by the combination of an AMR and an industrial robot that creates an Industrial Mobile Robot (IMR), including robots used in collaborative applications (Cobots).

We will also introduce the measures that are typically used to ensure safety.

This Webinar Will Tackle these points

  • Growth in automation
  • Examples of AMRs
  • Safety for AMRs - Protective devices and measures used on AMRs
  • Safety for Robots in Collaborative Applications (Cobots)
  • Task based Risk Assessments
  • Protective devices and measures used on Cobots
