"
While considering another company's AGV, "It is hard for the large AGV to press down on the work space and it is thought that the work efficiency will be lowered, and it will not be effective unless you buy more than a certain number.This is difficult and I want to respond for these problem more flexibly, "and CarriRo could solve these problems.
The reason for choosing CarriRo are "reasonable cost performance", "support for autonomous movement in version upgrading", "excellence in safety (area sensor, 4 speed adjustment function)", " Various modes can be selected according to the work application "," Can be operated continuously for 8 hours ".
"About half a year have passed since we introduced CarriRo, but we are currently reviewing the in-house operation rules and work routes with the aim of reducing the number of 2 cars per 2 CarriRo at all three work sites and also we are verifying the utilization for operation,"and is steadily improving the effectiveness.
Regarding future developments, we are planning to carry out transportation work, product transportation from finishing process to logistics process, etc, and we are considering to introduce an autonomous movement model as well, "I am motivated.
【Logistics Support Robot CarriRoⓇ】
CarriRo is a bogie type logistic support robot that has a drive mode that allows operation with a joystick and a karugamo mode that automatically tracks a beacon (transmitter), and is a product that began selling in August 2016. By utilizing CarriRo's function, it is possible to raise the productivity of transportation up to about 3 times at maximum. It is also possible to substitute a belt conveyor or AGV (automatic guided vehicle) by improving the efficiency of picking operations in warehouses and logistics centers, or by using them for inter-process conveyance in factories. Moreover, since the work load is greatly reduced, it becomes possible for women and elderly people to carry out the transportation work which was regarded as hard labor so far, so it can be used for expanding workers and promoting employment.
