Logistics capsules – self-driving, standardized vehicles for transporting goods – can facilitate uninterrupted supply chains for intralogistics. They can transport packaging units of goods both within a single plant and from one plant to another. Handling assistants are versatile, mobile, autonomous and cooperative robots. Thanks to their "Human Robot Cooperation" (HRC) functionality, they support human abilities and considerably reduce physical exertion required of your employees.

Winner at Parcel and Postal Technology Awards 2022
The innovative delivery robot - urban MAXOLUTON® logistics assistant - was developed for last-mile deliveries. Thanks to its numerous technical features, the delivery robot makes urban logistics in the last mile more economical and sustainable than current delivery traffic. This will greatly reduce traffic congestion in residential areas.
As part of the Postal Technology International Awards 2022 at the Parcel + Post Expo 2022 trade fair, SEW-EURODRIVE received the "Last Mile Delivery Innovation of the Year" award. The award went to the urban MAXOLUTON® logistics assistant - an innovative delivery robot for the last mile with MOVITRANS® contactless energy transmission and the innovative SAFS (Safe AC Field Stop) safety function.
Autonomous transport of goods in crates or on pallets
Wouldn't it be a huge relief in terms of work and costs for your manufacturing operation if you could just dispense with forklifts? Imagine instead having your materials picked up at the warehouse in crates or pallets and delivered to the production hall by intelligent, fully autonomous goods transport vehicles. Technologies that have hardly left the drawing board elsewhere have already become reality here at SEW‑EURODRIVE.
Our self-driving logistics capsules open and close using a roller shutter door. If necessary, the capsules can be loaded and unloaded manually by employees. Intelligent communications technology allows safe, unproblematic collaboration between humans and technology.
As a cyber-physical system (CPS), the logistics capsule is able to interact with any other assistance systems integrated into business processes. It always knows exactly what it currently has loaded, and it finds the best way to get the goods to the right place at the right time all by itself.
A robot arm assumes physically strenuous work
Mobile handling assistants with different robot gripper arms are used in the Smart Factory to relieve the workload of the staff. They can be used in production in a variety of ways. In the production area, for example, handling assistants with magnetic grippers can assume the physically stressful "reaching into the crate". They thereby remove unsorted unmachined parts and blanks from crates and place them on a feed belt. After machining, another handling assistant collects the finished parts and converts them for the next work step.
