As of September 1st, 2020, Mojin Robotics GmbH has become a subsidiary of Schiller Automatisierungstechnik GmbH and with that part of the SCIO Automation Group. Being a pioneer in the field of autonomous transport vehicles, Schiller has strengthened its intralogistics portfolio with the joining of Mojin. Mojin Robotics, based in Leinfelden-Echterdingen near Stuttgart, specializes in complex robotic solutions for a wide range of applications.
Schiller Automatisierungstechnik offers innovative automation solutions in the areas of automated conveyor and storage technology for industrial and clean room environments and is therefore an important pillar of the SCIO Automation platform. In the field of autonomous vehicles, Schiller already has successfully implemented solutions, which are well established on the market in the form of the Autonomous Tugger Train and the Smart Transportation Robot, which are now seamlessly complemented by Mojin's robot development "Luka".
"Mojin's expertise in mobile service robotics helps us cater to interfaces within our intralogistics portfolio with autonomous solutions," says Michael Goepfarth, CEO of SCIO Automation. "With Schiller's participation in Mojin, we are strengthening our position as an innovative and reliable partner for autonomous transport vehicle solutions for our customers."
Mojin Robotics GmbH was founded in 2015 and is a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA. The company initially focused on robot solutions in consumer-oriented environments ("Care-O-bot® 4"). The Luka solution is based on this technology and entails the step into the industrial environment. Luka, the autonomous logistics and picking assistant, fills gaps in internal supply chains, increases productivity and relieves the workload on technical and engineering staff. Mojin currently employs 11 people at its headquarters in Leinfelden-Echterdingen.
