At MoviĜo Robotics we offer robotized transport solutions for production environments and PSP,s. Together with HP Indigo we have integrated our software with HP Print OS. This allows our Ŝharko 5 Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) to collaborate directly with HP Indigo machines. It receives transportation tasks from the press to load and unload the feeders and stackers, pick up and drop off pallets in the warehouse and transport to finishers and cutters.
To support the total flow of materials we offer a variety of options to create transport tasks, and manage locations, using our vision and virtual button software. This allows you to fully control the flow of materials during the complete printing process.
