Flexible. Economic. Dependable.
Increasing product individualisation and the resulting smaller lot sizes in assembly systems place high requirements on the flexibility and reliability of intralogistic supply processes. Many companies are presented with the challenge of selecting the best solution from the many diverse supply and transport systems on the market. In contrast to lighthouse projects in the media, the cost-effectiveness of each option is a deciding factor in a manufacturing environment.
The presented whitepaper describes the systematic evaluation of supply concepts for an facility with 40 assembly cells. Every hour, over 80 pallets and kitted carts are required to supply the assembly cells with parts and packaging materials. At first sight it appears to be a classic case for tugger trains… but does it have to be?
In our whitepaper we highlight four alternatives: manual tugger trains, automated tugger trains, forklift AGVs, and carrier AGVs.
