The arculee brings self-driving vehicle technologies to factory floors, enabling completely new production processes. The mobile robot is available in various sizes and with transport capacities of up to a ton.
It is hard to imagine modern intralogistics and manufacturing processes without robots. However, while individual production steps are highly automated, there is often a lack of intelligent networking of the same. This is the focus of the portfolio of arculus - a Jungheinrich company. The Munich-based company develops solutions for modular production and automated intralogistics. The core component of the modular production solutions is the arculee, an autonomous mobile robot (AMR). It brings self-driving vehicle technologies to factory floors, enabling completely new production processes. Available in various sizes and with transport capacities of up to one ton, the robot is proving its worth in the automotive production of a leading German car manufacturer, among others.
The advantage of AMRs: While production processes on linear production lines and assembly lines often come to a standstill if material is missing at a station, a machine has to be serviced or the production step is otherwise delayed, AMRs enable flexible production at decentralized sstations and thus ensure a smooth and efficient process. If a production step comes to a standstill at one station, the product's path is adjusted in seconds and the AMR moves to the next free production platform. In the same way, required material is always transported by the AMRs to exactly where it is needed at the moment. The heart of the arculee is a central control unit - the Robot Control Unit (RCU).
