Hanover – Bosch Rexroth and AGILOX have entered into a partnership to open up the fast growing market for autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). This will provide AGILOX with easy access to additional markets around the world. The existing product portfolios of both companies complement each other very well and are being expanded all the time. The agreement was officially signed at the Hanover Trade Fair 2022.
“Through the partnership, we are combining a strong product and the agility of a scale-up with the global presence and scalability of a global player. The existing product portfolios complement each other really well,” stressed Enno Scharphuis, head of the Assembly Technology Business Unit at Bosch Rexroth. Autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) allow anything from small load carriers to pallets of any kind to be transported. At the moment, they can handle loads of up to 1.5 tons.
The global market for AMRs is growing very strongly. Customers expect a wide range of products, combined with an international presence in the areas of production, sales and service. Using mobile robotics, users can increase efficiency in intralogistics as well as transparency in the flow of materials.
“With Bosch Rexroth, we have a strong, internationally established partner at our side. Together, we will open up new markets,” said Franz Humer, co-founder of AGILOX.
Bosch Rexroth offers not only AMRs based on the swarm intelligence developed by AGILOX but also the ActiveShuttle, a VDA 5050-compliant solution for fleet management systems. “Both solutions play a key role in optimizing the flow of materials in intralogistics and fit seamlessly into digitally connected structures,” said Enno Scharphuis.
