Ready to use!
Predefined function grouping for components, software modules, and function blocks to reduce the amount of engineering, design, and production work required.

Simple!
Quick, problem-free integration and startup.

Verified!
All bundles are coordinated with the applications, approved, and type-tested in advance.

Automated guided vehicle systems Modular technology system
Kick-start your own AGVS production operation

Each bundle is based on perfectly coordinated components and modules from the modular technology system. The automation bundles have standardized mechanical and electrical interfaces. Functions can be implemented quickly thanks to predefined software function blocks. You can select individual bundles from various function groups or combine these.
