With this innovation, ek robotics is the first manufacturer worldwide to bundle the decisive advantages of both technology worlds in just one transport platform. The X MOVE can be used either as an AGV or as an AMR. It can be equipped with various load handling devices – depending on customer requirements and the transport solution. The compact transport robot also supports the VDA 5050 interface and thus meets the standards of the future. The X MOVE is available in three different variants: 300, 600 and 1200 - the numbers here indicate the maximum payload in kilograms. At LogiMAT (Hall 2, B05), ek robotics will be presenting its latest development to the public for the first time.
Perspectives and insights with SARA - Smart Analytics Reporting Application
Another highlight at the ek robotics booth (Hall 2, C07) is the new analysis tool SARA. The application records all relevant data of the plant and vehicles, evaluates them in various statistics in real time and provides a reliable overview of the system. In addition, SARA provides action tips for the best possible optimization of plant performance. The standard package of the app includes the four basic modules Dashboard, Transport Analysis, Fleet Analysis and Energy Balance. SARA is easy to start and operate via a standard browser. To make it easier to start processing and evaluating event data, ek robotics offers the reporting tool SARA as a cloud-based service, as Software as a Service (SaaS). This means that users do not need any special hardware or software other than a device with an Internet connection.
VARIO MOVE - the variably configurable transport robot
In 2020, ek robotics launched the VARIO MOVE series – a transport robot that can be variably configured from standardized components. This year, the VARIO MOVE was awarded the coveted Red Dot Award for its successful industrial design.
As an AGV, VARIO MOVE helps customers to achieve greater efficiency in the automated flow of materials and goods. The vehicles each consist of a drive unit with a module interface and can be equipped with different chassis, various load handling devices and all major navigation technologies available on the market – depending on the transport task. At LogiMAT, ek robotics will present two of the many possible variants: the fully automatic high-lift transport robot VARIO MOVE L for load cycles at heights of up to 5 meters and the counterbalance truck VARIO MOVE CB. This one has a load module graduated for different payloads and is suitable for loads of up to 1,600 kg.
FAST MOVE - flexible autonomous scalable transport platform
With an overall height starting at 140 millimeters, the FAST MOVE offers a wide range of applications in the field of intralogistics. The vehicle can be equipped with various load handling devices such as roller conveyor, lifting table or traction pin. With the ek robotics hybrid navigation system, the AGV navigates over the contours of its surroundings and reaches its destinations with maximum precision using personal protection scanners and reflectors. In addition, the FAST MOVE is individually scalable in its dimensions and can be designed as an omnidirectional transport platform in lengths of up to two meters.
For all information as well as expert advice on the topics of transport robotics, AGVs, AMR, intralogistics, simulation and analysis, the ek robotics experts will be happy to assist you at LogiMAT 2022 in Hall 2, Stand B05 and C07.
