The navigation of the automated guided vehicles is optical and based on magnets, triangulation and SLAM, guaranteeing you 100% reliability and personal safety by using state-of-the-art technologies. The fleet controller or manager handles the control and optimization of all transport orders. He can receive the orders from any warehouse management system or ERP system. With our software solutions, you remain in control over your logistics. In addition, the integration of Industry 4.0 functionalities offers the possibility of controlling processes centrally and thus in a coordinated manner.
The portfolio of AGV solutions from SSI SCHAEFER includes a wide range of innovative solutions for small load carriers (SSI Compact Load AGVs) and large load carriers (SSI Heavy Load AGVs) and guarantees reliable material flows around the clock.
The range of applications for AGVs extends from production and assembly to goods and warehouse logistics and is possible with mixed traffic consisting of automated vehicles and people across various branches. The seamless integration of holistic AGV solutions into the corporate, production and merchandise management control system allows, for example, many production and warehouse processes to be synchronized more closely and reliably. A large number of sources and kinds of lowering can be combined. Users benefit from short payback periods.
A partnership with the Austrian AGV specialist DS AUTOMOTION has allowed SSI SCHAEFER to extend its AGV portfolio. For more than 30 years, DS AUTOMOTION has specialized in the development and production of highly dynamic AGVs and has become one of the world’s leading manufacturers in this industry sector.
The cooperation has impacted solution expertise in the area of customer-specific device configurations. This allows for customized AGV solutions for various industries.
