Global automotive parts manufacturer Musashi Seimitsu has ordered 200 autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) from Israeli start-up 634AI.

The robots will be deployed across the company’s 35 manufacturing facilities worldwide over the next four years.

“We have been heavily investing in automation and AI capabilities over the past few years, with a vision to create a more humane workplace where people no longer carry out tedious, repetitive, unrewarding tasks,” says Isaku Takeshi, managing executive officer of Musashi.

“We believe 634AI’s distinct approach for industrial floor management and control allows, for the first time, people and machines to effectively work side by side in a much safer environment.”

Oren Levy, CEO of 634AI, calls the new partnership “a mark of trust and confidence in our ability to deliver an effective logistic automation solution in a real, busy industrial environment”.

634AI is part of the SixAI group, which is based in the tech incubator outside Jerusalem.

Musashi Seimitsu has manufacturing sites in 14 countries including Japan, Germany, the U.S.A., Canada, India, China, Brazil, Mexico, Hungary, Spain, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam.
