At last month’s EMO
show in Hanover — the world’s largest trade fair for machine tools — DMG Mori AG and Jungheinrich AG presented their development partnership for driverless transport systems — and their first product.
The DMG Mori PH-AGV 50 is a driverless transport system that enables the fully automated loading and unloading
of workpiece pallets on machine tools.
Christian Thönes, chairman of DMG Mori AG, said: “The Automated Guided Vehicles — AGVs for short — are another important innovation element for the Digital Factory of the future.
“With automated transport systems, we offer our customers a further product for automation and digitalisation.
“Automated transport systems can be used in an area-efficient manner and thus reduce transport times, as well as assembly and logistics costs.
“The flexible automation solution DMG Mori PH-AGV accelerates the material flow and thus ensures more flexible and productive processes in production; and with the DMG Mori Cell Controller LPS, all processes in the production and administration of pallets can be further optimised.”
The PH-AGV 50 is modularly expandable and moves freely in production halls via precise laser navigation technology; it also automatically aligns itself to the machines.
Free access and safety for the user are guaranteed at all times.
