Transmission solution for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics

The right part in the right place - optimized in terms of time and route - is already supported by the use of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and will continue to be so in the future. The use of these smart vehicles has become indispensable in many intralogistics systems. This smart and sustainable transport solution increases productivity in manufacturing and warehousing and supports sustainable and ecological goals in the company.

The automated guided vehicles, or AGVs, are in continuous use. Interruptions or long maintenance and repair times disrupt the logistics process and reduce productivity. This places high demands on the transmission. Maintenance-free and robust transmission solutions are required here.  This is what drives SPN - to develop worry-free and reliable gearbox solutions that optimize internal transport and keep it maintenance-free - with robust drives that require minimal installation space and score with a high load capacity. Our transmission solution is specially adapted to the requirements of AGVs and is designed together with you, as the manufacturer and developer of such transport systems, to meet your specific specifications. The design is based on proven standards and is manufactured precisely, customized and reliably.
SPN Schwaben Präzision Fritz Hopf GmbH has developed a compact drive and steering unit that takes up these requirements and implements them perfectly. The travel drive is designed with an optimally combined gearbox of different designs. The steering drive scores with a self-locking gear combination for energy-saving control. A 360° endlessly swiveling drive wheel for positionally accurate maneuvering ensures maximum mobility. Defined sensors are integrated into the system at the customer's request. This enables the transmission system to travel at speeds of up to 10 km/h. A drive load of up to 1.25t is possible without any problems. Customized solutions are our drive. Connection geometries to specified vehicle frames can be implemented specifically according to requirements, and the wheel connection geometry can be flexibly adapted.

Intralogistics will be characterized by further developments and automations in the future, new storage and internal transport concepts will increase the efficiency and productivity of companies. Manufacturing logistics will be rethought and put on a sustainable footing. With individual transmission solutions, which are adapted to the requirements and conditions of driverless transport systems, processes are being rethought and forward-looking logistics processes are being designed.Translated with (free version)
