Driverless transport systems
System solutions for flexibly controlled, driverless material transport
In the age of Industry 4.0 driverless transport systems - also known as Automated Guided Vehicles or AGV's - are enjoying increased demand, because they are suitable for transport and secure handling of goods of all types in virtually all branches. This is particularly true in branches, requiring transport or storage and retrieval of unit loads. The vehicles travel along established routes in storage facilities and are controlled by an independent master system or, in large plants, coordinated by a master WMS.
In consideration of the boom in E-commerce, it is essential to adapt AGV's to the changing requirements in production and logistics, by changing the route, for example, without expensive modifications to the floor or to increase the number of vehicles. Automation of intralogistic processes can increase value added for companies, because personnel costs, which add up particularly in multiple shift operation, can be reduced significantly through the use of AGV's.
AGV solutions from Stöcklin Logistics are based on low-lift transport vehicles, laid out to support weights up to 1,600 kg. These provide robust design and unique price-performance ratio over their entire life cycle.
Advantages at a glance:
- High user friendliness
