Efficient intralogistics management essentially requires two things: quick picking and placing of goods and flow management controlled by simple and intuitive software applications. Mobile Industrial Robots and Modula have combined their know-how to create a solution capable of picking, placing, and storing materials without the need for operator intervention.

Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR) develops and markets the industry’s most advanced line of collaborative and safe autonomous mobile robots (AMRs), which can manage intralogistics quickly, easily, and cost-effectively, enabling the workforce to focus on higher-value activities. Around the world, hundreds of manufacturers, medium and large multinational logistics centers as well as various hospitals use MiR’s innovative robots.

MiR – Modula complete automation: How does it work?

The combination of MiR robots with Modula vertical storage systems enables the autonomous picking, placing, and handling of goods. Modula’s WMS (warehouse management software) and the MiR Fleet centralized control system interact with each other, thus providing accurate synchronization of all operations. The vertical storage system delivers the specific tray containing the goods to be picked to the picking/placing bay. The MiR robot, equipped with a special top module designed to handle the tray, autonomously removes the entire tray from the bay and takes it to its destination. This solution is modular and scalable: it can be adapted to any environment thanks also to its quick and easy installation procedure. In fact, the installation and commissioning of MiR robots and Modula storage solutions do not require any structural changes.

Massimiliano Gigli, CEO of Modula comments as follows: β€œWe are especially pleased with our partnership with MiR as it allows us to expand our range of applications and meet our customers’ needs. Our automatic storage systems combined with MiR robots represent the perfect solution for those looking to incorporate automation in their warehouses.”
