Tennant, Brain Corp’s OEM partner, released T7AMR and T380AMR smaller robotic cleaning machines for narrow aisles, built on its advanced AI tech platform
Tennant Company, Brain Corp’s OEM partner that designs, manufactures and markets solutions to reinvent cleaning tools, today announced the launch of its newest autonomous floor cleaning machine, the T380AMR Robotic Floor Scrubber. The automated robot’s smaller size allows increased maneuverability for narrow areas and responsive navigation leading to maximum productivity. The new robotic floor scrubber is ideal for customers with narrow spaces or layouts that may have previously challenged other robotic machines. T380AMR units began shipping to North America customers in September and will begin shipping globally in November.
The T380AMR robotic cleaning machine powered by Brain Corp’s BrainOS® AI is the latest in Tennant’s world-class AMR line that operates in complex, real-world environments without direct operator control. This frees up employees to focus on other tasks, like cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces. Cleaning has never been more important, as custodial crews put in additional time, effort and materials to thoroughly clean surfaces from top to bottom.
Tennant launched its first autonomous solution in 2018, with the introduction of the T7AMR Scrubber. Both the T7AMR and T380AMR are powered by BrainOS®, an advanced artificial intelligence and robotic technology platform, from Tennant partner Brain Corp.
Phil Duffy, Brain Corp’s VP of Product, Program, & UX Design said, “The pandemic has made retailers and other businesses recognize the immense value that robots provide in alleviating demands on workers, smoothing variability in day-to-day operations, increasing productivity, and helping complete mission-critical tasks. As a result, we’ve seen strong demand and an increase of 24% in usage of BrainOS-powered robots in Q2. The new T380AMR from our partner Tennant is smaller, more agile, and better suited for narrower, tighter spaces, giving customers an additional choice at a time when cleaning has never been more important.”
David Strohsack, Vice President of Marketing, Tennant Company said, “With the introduction of the new T380AMR, Tennant is adding to its lineup of high-performing autonomous floor care machines that help meet the needs of our customers. During this critical time when our clients are seeking ways to clean their facilities more efficiently and effectively than ever before, it’s important that we provide cleaning solutions for varying footprints.”
Reid Rabon, Senior Global Product Manager, Tennant Company, said, “The T380AMR’s smaller footprint allows for cleaning narrow aisles, making tighter turns and smaller U-turns. This pays off in maximum productivity as the smaller, more maneuverable machine goes where larger machines may not fit.”
The T380AMR has the same proven reliability and performance of Tennant’s larger T7AMR, using the same drive system, user interface and sensors and powered by Brain Corp’s BrainOS® platform. It also includes unmatched support with Tennant’s AMR Customer Success and Service Team, available to assist customers nationwide.
Minneapolis-headquartered Tennant’s products include equipment for maintaining surfaces in industrial, commercial and outdoor environments.
