Nord Modules announces company launch in the US

March 6, 2019 Nord Modules, launched by Bruno Hansen, a co-founder of Mobile Industrial Robots (MiR), announced its entry into the U.S. market with a series of flexible material-moving modules that connect production lines and internal logistics using autonomous mobile robots (AMR). The ready-to-use and industrial-quality modules are designed to enhance automated heavy-payload transportation between production lines and storage systems and safely increase the flexibility of production lines by enabling companies to use the same AMR for multiple tasks.

The Nord Modules product line includes the Top Mover that mounts on MiR100 and MiR200 robots to deliver material to and from Nord Modules’ gates installed at production lines, storage systems or conveyors. Integrated software and an intelligent touchscreen enable users to adapt the complete system for specialized work processes, forming an automation of internal transportation tasks. Nord Modules offers three types of gate modules, each with different key features:

  • Solid Gate (SG): Basic standard module that can receive or hold items and can serve as a pick-up point for autonomous mobile robots.
  • Wheel Gate (WG): Integrated stop function and manually controlled wheels enable the mobile robot to push items to a pick-up point or further into production.
  • Roll Gate (RG): Integrated motor creates a fully automated gate with rolls that can receive and deliver objects from a 90-degree angle.  

All modules offered by Nord Modules are available in either the Flex or new Basic series. The Nord Modules 5-finger Flex series offers maximum flexibility, making it ideal for customers to handle many different load sizes within their production or logistics environment. The 3-finger Basic series delivers a cost-effective option for consistently bigger load sizes.  

Nord Modules’ products comply with the safety requirements in the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/CE.

Hansen and Kenneth B. Henriksen, Nord Module’s new chief commercial officer, will attend Automate 2019 in Chicago April 8-11, showing off the customization its modules enable as MiR displays several Nord Modules’ products in its booth (7368).
