For wider and higher payloads: the Ŝharko10 Wide Body

HAARLEM, Netherlands - Nov. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- Haarlem, The Netherlands - Pallets are standardized carriers, but some factories use odd-sized pallets because it suits their products better. A South African plastic injection molding company created their own plastic pallets that suited their process better. The problem arose when they wanted to automate internal transport because standard Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR) didn't fit under their pallets. Very few companies are capable and willing to build a custom AMR for a limited number of robots. But there is a company in the Netherlands that can. And the result is now here: the Ŝharko10 Wide Body. "We sell AMR solutions and the vehicles are only part of the solution. So if a customer needs some alterations to the vehicle because it benefits their process, we can do that."

The Ŝharko10 Wide Body's main difference is the bodywork. The forks of the vehicle are further apart, which enables it to lift non-standard loads. MoviĜo's Managing Director Paul van der Hulst: "From the day we started with the design of the vehicle, we've encountered several applications for the Wide Body. For example wide payloads like doors and larger sized heat pumps. But also payloads with a high center of gravity. The Ŝharko10 Wide Body enables us to transport a larger variety of carriers."

The new Ŝharko10 Wide Body is built on the MoviĜo platform, so the Wide Body has the same cleverness as all the other robots built by the Dutch manufacturer. It can be used as an industrial IoT device in factories, which means it can be fully integrated in the factory. It communicates with software systems like ERP and WMS, but also with third party hardware devices like doors, wrappers, palletisers, production lines etc. But it can be used as a stand-alone system as well. Then tasks are generated via virtual buttons or MoviĜo's revolutionary camera system. This camera system automatically generates a task when it detects a pallet on a certain location. It can even detect that a pallet is empty and automatically generate a replenishment task.
