In a recent article by SPS Magazine, editor-in-chief Mathis Bayerdörfer explores the utilization of mobiMS, STXI Motion’s wheel-drive system in Safelog’s AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) fleet.
As AGVs continue to play a crucial role in the automation of material handling processes, incorporating advanced drive systems can significantly enhance their performance, efficiency, and reliability.
Here are the top 5 reasons why Safelog chose mobiMS for their game-changing mobile robots:
- Enhanced Maneuverability
The mobiMS wheel-drive system offers exceptional maneuverability, allowing Safelog’s AGVs to navigate tight spaces and complex environments with ease. The system’s compact design and precise control enable AGVs to make quick and accurate turns, improving overall agility and optimizing the use of available space.
- Increased Power and Torque
By integrating the mobiMS system, Safelog’s AGV fleet gains access to increased power and torque capabilities. This enhancement allows AGVs to handle heavier loads, climb inclines, and overcome obstacles more effectively, thereby expanding the range of tasks they can perform efficiently.
- Improved Traction and Stability
The mobiMS system features advanced traction control mechanisms, ensuring optimal grip on various surfaces. This increased traction enhances AGV stability, even when operating on slippery or uneven terrains. It minimizes the risk of slippage, reducing the potential for accidents and ensuring the safe transportation of goods.
- Enhanced Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency is a critical factor in AGV operations, and the mobiMS system excels in this aspect. The drive system incorporates innovative energy recuperation techniques, capturing and reusing energy during braking or deceleration. This regenerative feature results in reduced power consumption and prolonged battery life, allowing AGVs to operate for longer durations before requiring recharging.
- Seamless Integration and Adaptability
The mobiMS wheel-drive system offers seamless integration with Safelog’s AGV fleet, allowing for easy implementation and compatibility with existing control systems. The system’s adaptability enables customization to specific AGV requirements, ensuring optimal performance in Safelog’s diverse material handling applications.
By harnessing the advantages of the STXI Motion’s mobiMS wheel-drive system, Safelog’s AGV fleet experiences enhanced maneuverability, increased power and torque, improved traction and stability, improved energy efficiency, and seamless integration.
By using STXI Motion’s complete wheel-drive system, advanced mobile robots manufacturers like Safelog benefit greater productivity, improved operational efficiency, and a higher level of reliability in their material handling processes, while gaining significant advantages for their AGVs in the highly competitive automation solutions market.
