Operation series

The YOUIBOT AMRs from the Operation series represent a perfect combination of a mobile platform with robotic arm with a vision module, clamping jaw, and other integrated technologies available. They are designed to carry out a wide range of transfer operations, such as loading and unloading of various materials, packages, jigs, CNC machined parts, etc. between different manufacturing stages.

Currently, the company provides three operational models differing in terms of outer dimensions, speed, and storage positions — OW–8, OW–12, and OT–T12. They provide remarkable positioning accuracy of up to ±5 mm and ±1°, great working radius of 1300 mm, and decent manipulator load from 10 to 12 kg. Furthermore, the machines boast high battery capacity allowing them to operate for up to 10 hours with only 2 hours required for complete recharging.

Lifting series

The L-100 AMR from the Lifting series by YOUIBOT.

To optimize internal transportation and logistics of indoor industrial facilities, YOUIBOT offers AMRs from the advanced Lifting series. All the L robots are equipped with a rotating lifting module enabling automated transfer of heavy loads and pallets between line-side stations or from warehouses to workshops.

The series also includes three models — L300, L500, and L1000. Apart from the payload capacity stated in the name, the robots slightly vary in lifting and rotation speed determined by their weight and dimensions. They otherwise feature the same multi-level security protection, smart laser hybrid navigation algorithms, and enhanced Battery Management System that supports automatic charging and quick battery replacement.

The lightest and most compact model from the L series, the L300 AMR, nevertheless boasts rugged structural design and brand positioning accuracy. Despite its lower lifting speed compared to the series counterparts, it is ideal for warehouses or manufacturing sites with narrow passageways.

With a higher load capacity yet slower rotation speed, the L500 model is perfect for a wide scope of transportation tasks requiring more power or larger platform size. It is still great in terms of positioning accuracy (up to ±10 mm and ±1° for the entire series) and 8 hours of run-time with a full payload making for a smooth non-stop workflow.

Being the largest robot in the L series, the L1000 provides an impressive 1000 kg payload, which allows it to efficiently perform transfer, delivery, palletizing, and order processing at the largest and most demanding assembly stations, clean rooms, loading docks, stock rooms, etc. Due to its intelligent obstacles overcoming abilities, the AMR will prove useful in the majority of modern industrial challenges.

 

Platform series

The P-200 AMR from the YOUIBOT Platform series.

The YOUIBOT P series introduces autonomous mobile platforms able to deal with complex material handling tasks in the production sites. They come with an industrial-grade laser/QR code navigation system making for efficient optimization and automation.

With four available models covering payload needs from 200 to 1000 kg, the YOUIBOT Platform series features advanced compatibility with over 10 types of operational modules suitable for various transportation objectives arising during manufacturing processes, warehouse logistics, and security inspection. Moreover, all the P series AMRs are equipped with built-in power supply for the top module to support a remarkable standalone run-time of up to 15 hours with fast automatic charging.

Display panel industry

When it comes to display panel production, some serious challenges arise, like strict safety requirements, fragility of products which affects their transportation, time constraints, and complexity of the whole process. Still, a mobile robot system helps to manage the production line and warehouse operations at the whole new level.

YOUIBOT solutions for the display panel industry.

YOUIBOT provides roller-type and forklift robots that in combination with the YOUIFLeet and YOUITMS systems ensure effective material handling without human personnel involved. This makes for better inventory record as well as smooth production automation.

Electronic semiconductor industry

Not all tasks can be safely performed by people. So in the case of semiconductor manufacturing, there is a problem with efficiency of manual error-prone objectives due to high vibration, contamination, discontinuous operation, and low accuracy. Furthermore, there are some strict requirements to working conditions, such as dust-free, antistatic ability as well as vibration standards.

YOUIBOT AMRs enable well-organized loading, unloading and transportation of necessary materials for intelligent and flexible operation of semiconductor production workshops.

IDC inspection

Manual inspections require a high level of expertise, responsibility and traceability, which can be provided by the YOUIBOT automated inspection robots. They are capable of 24/7 operation while offering one-stop IDC and maintenance management.

Equipped with a vertical lifting and lowering module, YOUIBOT IDC robots provide sufficient inspection height compared to other machines as well as precise real-time calculations and thorough feedback on their activity. With all inspection standards determined in advance, the identification accuracy of these AMRs meets 99%.

Order fulfillment strategy

YOUIBOT automated trolley series designed for efficient order fulfillment.

The company’s automated trolley series presents perfect smart assistants able to effectively fulfill sorting and picking tasks. These AMRs are specifically designed to minimize human labor and optimize accuracy and efficiency of retrieving multiple orders from the assigned location (batch picking).

The idea is presented in the YOUIBOT official video on the matter:

Warehouse inventory management

With thousands of square meters of warehouses and 15-meter high shelves, it is necessary to obtain, filter and check cargo information quickly and accurately, not to mention real-time feedback on processing and automatic generation of inventory reports.

YOUIBOT decided to deploy AMRs in large warehouses to ensure intelligent cargo location identification and database management. By filtering and automatically generating task reports, the robots digitized enormous amounts of information on the provided inventory in a streamlined and cost-effective way.

Check out the realization of this project in the video below:

 

ARIS-K2 anti-epidemic robot

In 2020, the world faced a coronavirus pandemic that determined a corresponding vector of development. YOUIBOT promptly introduced an indoor mobile multi-point ultraviolet disinfection robot with infrared body temperature monitoring, temperature deviation detection, and decontamination functionality — ARIS-K2. With laser SLAM navigation algorithms and reliable construction, it was a find for hospitals, airports, shopping malls, stations, offices, production sites, etc.
