Logistics capsule (MAXO-MS-CA) / Concept study

  • Logistics capsule with its door open and holding crates, set in a manufacturing environment (trade fair booth demonstration)

Logistics capsules – self-driving, standardized vehicles for transporting goods – can facilitate uninterrupted supply chains for intralogistics. They can transport packaging units of goods both within a single plant and from one plant to another.

Your benefits

  • Strain relief for employees

    Its robotic gripper arms take over the physically strenuous parts of the procedure
  • Smooth-running process sequences

    Integrates cutting-edge technology for location, navigation, and communications
  • Fast, wear-free transport

    MOVITRANS® contactless energy transfer system operates by induction and can be used as a line cable and for intermittent point charging

Autonomous transport of goods in crates or on pallets

Wouldn't it be a huge relief in terms of work and costs for your manufacturing operation if you could just dispense with forklifts? Imagine instead having your materials picked up at the warehouse in crates or pallets and delivered to the production hall by intelligent, fully autonomous goods transport vehicles. Technologies that have hardly left the drawing board elsewhere have already become reality here at SEW‑EURODRIVE.

Our self-driving logistics capsules open and close using a roller shutter door. If necessary, the capsules can be loaded and unloaded manually by employees. Intelligent communications technology allows safe, unproblematic collaboration between humans and technology.

As a cyber-physical system (CPS), the logistics capsule is able to interact with any other assistance systems integrated into business processes. It always knows exactly what it currently has loaded, and it finds the best way to get the goods to the right place at the right time all by itself.
