MiR 500

MiR 500

Automate your internal transportation of heavy loads and pallets easily and cost-effectively.



Safe and efficient maneuvering

The collaborative MIR500 safely maneuvers around people and physical obstacles. With its advanced technology and sophisticated software, the robot autonomously navigates to find the most efficient path to its destination. When it meets obstacles, it will automatically re-route to avoid costly lags in logistics processes.

MiR500 is equipped with the latest laser-scanning technology that delivers a 360-degree visual for optimal safety. 3D cameras have a range of 30-2,000 mm above floor level to detect pallets.

Optimize pallet transportation without changing facility layout

With the MiR500 Pallet Lift, the MiR500 picks up, transports and unloads pallets autonomously, freeing up employees for more valuable tasks. There is no need to change the facility layout when operating the MiR500 as the function of wires, magnets or QR codes is replaced by sophisticated navigation software. Simply download CAD files of the facility to the robot or use its laser scanners to create a map – that’s all it takes to ensure a fast and cost-efficient implementation.

A robust robot for the industry

MiR500 is compliant with ISO/EN 13849 and fulfills the EMC requirement for industrial use. The rugged MiR500 is designed for industry use with robust exterior that can withstand dropped cargo and can easily navigate up and down ramps and even through shallow water puddles.

Highly user friendly and flexible

The user-friendly MiR500 gives you full control of the robot from the very start. MiR500 is controlled with the intuitive MiR Robot Interface via smartphone, tablet or PC, and can be programmed without any prior experience. The robot can also be integrated into your ERP system for a fully automated solution.

With the ability to quickly and easily integrate different top modules, the MiR500 can be equipped with pallet forks, conveyors, a robot arm or other options to support a wide range of applications.
