Thira Robotics will showcase its latest autonomous mobile robot technology at the Automate Show, where it will demonstrate how the company “guided global manufacturing, healthcare, and construction leaders in augmenting 24/7 staff services”.
Thira says demand from the market has been “strong” following its US launch in March and says it plans to show how triple safety systems overcome obstacles of first-generation AMRs.
Demos of real-life-ready logistics AMRs with the capability to navigate settings with highly complex human traffic, sloped floors, liquid spills, elevators, narrow hallways, and more are 0also planned.
Thira, a South Korean AMR developer and a subsidiary of smart factory solutions leader Thira UTech, launched in the US market says it wants to provide AMRs to navigate facility conditions previously not fit for automation.
The comp0any currently offers solutions to healthcare, manufacturing, and supply chain industries to overcome physical barriers to technology adoption.
Peter Kim, CEO of Thira Robotics, says: “Some plants with poor conditions struggle to integrate AMR successfully. Now, older manufacturers don’t need to remodel to integrate. With Thira Robotics, robotization is possible for facilities not fit for automation.
“Our next-generation technology improves existing solutions by offering real-life-ready logistics AMRs to handle imperfect floors and high traffic for US industries to solve labor shortages and other market gaps.”
Unlike current AMR market offerings, Thira Robotics AMR can operate on damaged floors, changing surroundings, high traffic, liquid spills, slopes, narrow spaces, and elevators.
Accelerating AMR innovation in South Korea’s competitive market, which has the world’ highest number of robots per worker in the industrial sector, allowed Thira to “win all bids against established AMR makers”.
Kim says: “At the National Cancer Center, the #1 clinical research center in Korea, our AMRs augmented hospital staff and piloted 24/7 patient and nurse-assistance services.
“We streamlined factory processes for cosmetics conglomerate AmorePacific, where split warehousing and manufacturing facilities with complex traffic and high order volume slowed production.”
