EDITORIAL About the perspectives of automated guided systems Asked about the future of intralogistics, consumers responded with their consumption needs, filled in on their computers at home. This is part of the answer. Given the steady increase in online shopping sales, the contemporary trend towards smaller packaging units down to a batch size of 1 will continue. It follows that intralogistics will incorporate more separation into individual units and picking output will increase correspondingly. In this context, according to expert opinion, one area with a high future potential is small automated transport vehicles that support picking. The trend towards automation – as you can read in the article on page 12 – is also in full swing in China. In the transformation that is underway from low-wage country to high-tech nation, both Chinese companies and the government of China are committed to promoting the automation of production and logistics processes, to cut costs and also to become more competitive. Automation solutions include robots used for handling tasks as well as automated guided systems, for which scientist are also forecasting a high future potential. So it should come as no surprise that CeMAT Asia, the international trade fair held in Shanghai from October 27 to 30, is dedicating a special exhibit to the topic in the “International AGV Pavilion” in building W2. Automated guided systems have undergone enormous technical development in recent years and reached a state of the art able to meet operator demands for easy installation and flexible use. The progressive miniaturization of control units and use of improved sensor systems on the technical side, plus easier integration into the existing company-internal infrastructure with much simpler setup on the software level makes it significantly easier to place these vehicles in operation. That makes automated guided systems reliable and easy to handle so they can support the implementation of fully or semi-automated intralogistics processes, offering a solution that is at once cost-effective and flexible. Automated guided systems are expanding their application potential The best doors www.efaflex.com Unbeatably fast, safe and reliable: Doors from EFAFLEX stand out for world-leading, patented technology and technical superiority.
