Logistics assistants for production and distribution logistics

  • Transportation vehicles in the factory hall

Automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) enable automated internal material flows. Our MAXOLUTION® AGVS system solutions consist of intelligent vehicles with contactless energy transfer and WLAN communication.

Our portfolio for transportation vehicles

Your benefits

  • Reduce complexity

    and use automated guided vehicle systems (AGVSs) for future logistics concepts
  • Reduce costs

    by using effective mobile transportation vehicles instead of stationary materials handling technology or manned transportation solutions
  • Implement new concepts easily

    with the ability to adjust your processes and paths yourself so that you can respond quickly to changing requirements
  • Reduce travel distances

    with the low minimum clearance of 25 cm on each side, which allows for narrow aisles in your plant layout
  • Take advantage of our global service

    with the SEW‑EURODRIVE service network, which is always available to help you with problems or optimizations

Travel time, navigation and load handling – precisely tailored to your needs

Have a 24/7 production area and want to automate the supply of materials? Or maybe you're looking for an automated guided vehicle system (AGVS) that can travel from one hall to another? Not possible to attach adhesive tracks to your floor? Regardless of your conditions on site, our mobile transportation vehicles make your logistics more efficient and your processes more reliable.

Various energy management systems are available in accordance with the "just right" concept. Depending on your energy needs and maximum permissible height, you can choose from various charging strategies and energy modules.

Also, the navigation depends on your on-site conditions: The track can either be adhered to the floor, installed in the floor as an induction loop or configured as an open-space solution with SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping). An RFID (radio-frequency identification) read/write head can also be used to optimize station approach and ensure precise positioning with a maximum tolerance of 10 mm.

Even the load handling is tailored to your process. Whether you're placing or depositing something on the vehicle manually, driving the vehicle under a carrier and raising it, or building a conveyor line – you decide the capabilities of your vehicles. Regardless of your transportation tasks, our mobile transportation vehicles will solve them reliably and cost effectively.
