New MiR500 Collaborative Industrial Robot

A bigger, stronger and faster MiR

Developed to meet the needs of your customers
The MiR500 is what you have been waiting for. It is an extremely robust robot designed perfectly industrial environments. With a payload of up to 500 kg, the robot autonomously transports pallets using the MIR500 Pallet Lift.  You can also choose to design you own top modules to serve your specific needs, all with the same user-friendly interface as other MiR robots.

The MiR500 will be ready for shipment starting October 1st.

With the MiR500 we once again are setting new standards for how companies can use autonomous mobile robots. As you know, we continuously invest in product development to maintain our status as the leading global supplier of mobile robots. Please welcome our latest innovation and get ready to boost your business.

We are ready – I really hope you are too.

Best regards,
Thomas Visti

Meet MiR500 

The new MiR500 joins the MiR100 and MiR200 to form a complete fleet of flexible and easy-to-program MiR robots for both heavy and light transport that can optimize logistics throughout the entire production chain, from the warehouse to the delivery of goods.

With a lifting capacity of 500 kg (1102 lbs) it can automatically collect, transport and deliver pallets with speeds of nearly 7.2 kilometers (4.5 miles) per hour. The high speed of the MiR500 streamlines pallet transport in all types of companies and frees up employees so they can carry out more valuable activities.

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 0-3.5 meters above floor level to detect pallets as well as identify and avoid floor openings such as stairwells.

Optimize Euro-pallet transportation without changing facility layout
There is no need to change facility layout for 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 and light industrial use. The rugged MiR500 is designed for industry use with a 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.

The user interface matches that used in the MiR100 and MiR200, which already optimize production processes in many of the world’s biggest multinational companies such as Airbus, Flex, Honeywell, Hitachi and Danone. The difference is the MiR500’s size, lifting capacity and areas of application.
