At the Ligna in Hanover, the Zimmer Group presents a completely new and highly innovative category of automation components. The Modular Transport System is a modular, fully networked and scalable system of transport units for a wide range of requirements in automation and linked production.

Maximum productivity and flexibility

The individual modules move with very high dynamics and precision on a defined travel path which realizes the high-precision mechanical movement through a linear guide in combination with a rack and pinion drive and the transmission of bus signals or electrical energy via a concealed sliding contact transmission. Depending on the requirement profile, one or more shuttles can be autarkically or electronically coupled, synchronously on any length of travel with speeds of 0-2m/s and a positioning accuracy of 0.05mm. The maximum payload of the individual modules is 100kg. The continuous circulation and the modules on the track are achieved with a change of direction of travel through high-performance converters.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
