Automate tugger trains with STILL
Expertise from a single source
What’s vaguely referred to as ‘Industry 4.0’ in the sector often starts with individual automation solutions, such as driverless transport systems (DTS) and, specifically, automated tugger trains.
But what does the path to an automated tugger train look like in your company? Each tugger train automation is individual and depends on various factors, such as the floor, aisle widths, traffic situation, range of containers and the IT landscape. Initially this also involves the automation of individual routes or sub-areas in the process, such as driving or loading and unloading.
What level of automation is of interest to you?
We use our expertise to help you analyse your processes and identify automation potentials in order to set your company up for the future.
The tugger train covers the route automatically – loading and unloading are carried out manually.
