Automated Tugger Trains
The youngest member of the STILL iGo family
Automated Tugger Trains
Targeting to make logistics processes more efficient by automation, STILL deploys automated Tugger Train solutions. These solutions allow to fully automate the flow of materials right up to the production line and make clocked supply to production facilities even smarter and more economic.
Advantages of fully or partially automated systems at a glance:
- Loads can be moved ergonomically in the factory regardless of the physical condition of the employees
- In automated tugger trailers, all loads can be loaded and unloaded simultaneously
- Substantial traffic calming compared to material supply by forklift truck
- Reduction in space requirements and greater safety in handling the load carriers or trolleys.

Solutions for heavy loads
For companies mainly moving heavy loads or that want to relieve their workforce from excessive physical strain, the automated Tugger Train solutions from STILL are a genuine option. The automated E frame in combination with the transfer station, as well as an automated C frame, can also be operated with a manual tractor allowing to load and unload particularly heavy loads at the different stations along the production line.
With the automated E frame and the transfer station, STILL opens its customers new opportunities. Now, it is possible to move up to 1.5 tons per trailer to the production in routed operation.
To allow loading and unloading of a Tugger Train with oversized load carriers, the C frames are fitted with two electrically powered telescopic forks providing a load capacity of up to 1 000 kg to automate loading and unloading. The adjustable forks are controlled on a touch screen panel on the tractor allowing the driver to operate the Tugger Train intuitively.
Future of tuggertrains
A visionary concept that combines automation and autonomy clearly illustrates vividly that SIILL has a very concrete idea about the future of the Tugger Train. Autonomously networked automated guided vehicles and Tugger Trains are a perfect combination that makes a crucial contribution to production supply revolutionising speed, safety and cost efficiency.
