How will AMRs revolutionize the modern production?

Webinar on June 4, 2024, 4:30 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. (Central European Time)


From intralogistics to matrix production

Henry Ford revolutionized production in 1913. Since then, the assembly line has changed the way in which production is conceived and organized. The arrival of autonomous mobile robots (AMR) in production halls is a turning point in this development. Currently mainly mentioned in the context of intralogistics, AMRs are much more than self-propelled pallet trucks.

What is the true potential for companies utilizing autonomous mobile robots?

  • AMRs allow radical flexibility of production.
  • AMRs enable the replacement of purely linear and clocked production with island and matrix solutions.
  • AMRs increase the efficiency of the material flow and production process to establish maximum machine utilization and cost-effective production of individual parts and small batches.
  • AMRs fundamentally change the way we think about and organize production.

Make your company competitive and future-ready with AMR!

Your hosts:

Dr. Tobias Rainer Schäfle from Fraunhofer IPA will provide valuable insights on the future of production and the role that AMRs play in a dynamic operational environment. Matthias Buck, Managing Director of BEC GmbH, will shed light on the successful use of AMRs from the perspective of a versatile integrator using a practical example. Together with KUKA experts Michael Jürgens and Antonia Ritter, they will explain in a panel discussion how AMRs can be effortlessly integrated into production environments and what needs to be considered.
