Safe mobile platforms: Speed up your processes

Today’s production and logistics environments are characterized by mobile platforms, which means more flexibility and efficiency are required. If you want to make your processes fit for the future, then you are definitely on the safe side with us. With our modular, scalable safety solutions we ensure smooth processes – both for indoor and outdoor applications.   

Mobile platforms are only profitable if they are actually mobile. The simple solution is: high productivity by avoiding collisions and downtimes. We support you with rugged sensors and intelligent software to ensure your automated guided vehicles and carts are operating safely, autonomously, and cost-efficiently. An important component of this is the situation-specific adjustment of the driving speed so that your mobile platforms remain in motion.  

The data provided by the sensor can also be used for localization and furthermore, for navigation purposes by our customers: an additional use that makes the deployment of mobile platforms even more efficient. From intelligent sensors for collision avoidance right through to complete safety solutions with integrated localization – we are your partner!

Safety solutions for AGVs from SICK: Reliable, efficient, modularly extensible

Production and intralogistics complement each other perfectly and are merging together. What were once two completely separate areas are now undergoing mutual growth due to advances in automation and digitalization. Mobile platforms, AGVs, and mobile robots are playing an important role in this. Our longstanding partner, the technology expert Asseco CEIT, is relying on the sensor solutions from SICK. CEIT is again placing its trust in the safety expertise from SICK for its new AGVs.

No slowing down even in tight curves

More efficiency in the warehouse through automation: This is one of the requirements of customers on Jungheinrich. Using safety components from SICK, the intralogistics specialist Jungheinrich is transforming more and more of its vehicles into automated guided vehicle (AGVs). Working in collaboration, they developed an especially maneuverable electric high lift truck – true to the motto: moving more together.

Jungheinrich automates lift trucks making them agile through corners and safe for higher throughputs 

Automated workflows for safe entry into Industry 4.0

“Compared to a conveyor system, the costs are significantly reduced and flexibility in production is significantly increased. As staff can be taken off activities which do not add value, and because heavier loads can be hauled by individual automated guided vehicles, return on investment is expected to be rapid.
