Mini-AGVs make a big impression with our technology

Automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems in miniature – BeeWaTec GmbH is treading new paths with this novel idea. The drive unit is based on WITTENSTEIN motion control's traction drive system (TDS).

 

AGVs get things moving in intralogistics

 

AGV systems are used by companies to move goods and materials from A to B. They appear to be able to find their own way: they avoid obstacles and can move forwards, backwards and even sideways. The total weight of each vehicle is between around 300 kilograms and 25 tons. These innovative AGVs are moved by electric drives.
