Cooperation on driverless transport systems for automated material flow
Bielefeld // Highlight at EMO Hanover: DMG MORI and Jungheinrich present their development partnership for driverless transport systems at the world’s largest trade fair for machine tools – and already a first product. The DMG MORI PH-AGV 50 heralds a new era of flexible automation solutions in intralogistics. The driverless transport system enables fully automated loading and unloading of workpiece pallets on machine tools.
“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 digitization,” says Christian Thönes, Chairman of the Executive Board of DMG MORI AKTIENGESELLSCHAFT.
“Two innovation leaders speed up the digital transformation: together we unite Jungheinrich’s expertise in the field of automated guided vehicles with DMG MORI’s integrated technology and automation solutions, thus creating significant added value for our customers,” says Dr. Lars Brzoska, Chairman of the Executive Board of Jungheinrich AG.
Automated transport systems can be used in an area-efficient manner and thus sustainably 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. With the DMG MORI Cell Controller LPS, all processes in the production and administration of pallets can be further optimized.
The jointly developed, autonomous pallet handling system can be ordered form EMO on. The PH-AGV 50 is modularly expandable, moves freely in the production halls with precise laser navigation technology and automatically aligns itself optimally to the machines. Free access and safety for the user are guaranteed at all times. DMG MORI is presenting this innovation for the first time at EMO Hanover from 16th to 21st September 2019.
