MonFlex® Highly flexible assembly AGV system

MonFlex® is a highly flexible AGV system that enables flexible setup of order-picking and assembly areas and interlinking if required. The system is available in different configurations. For the version with AGVS host computer an active routing with traffic control is made via the host computer. The vehicles communicate in real-time with the AGVS host computer via a WLAN connection. In this way the direct implementation of the functions like block securing and electronic drawbar is possible. Interfaces to the integrated automated stations are directly implemented via the TCP/IP connection. Power transmission is made via a non-contact pickup system. Additionally, the AGV are equipped with a 24V battery pack, so that a supply via the pickup system does not have to be ensured completely. In connection with the optical tracking the circuit is adaptable to changed requirements very quickly and with very little effort.
