Automated Guided Vehicles WEASEL®
Automated Guided Vehicles WEASEL®

A small yet powerful vehicle

The new Weasel® can transport boxes, totes or a variety of other goods through your premises flexibly and easily without a conventional conveying system. It masters almost all transport tasks – goods are transported to the intended destination safely and without access restrictions. What's more, this is achieved with low purchase and operating costs. The automated guided vehicles navigate along an optical track that can be installed quickly, easily and in a flexible manner.

With the Weasel automated guided vehicle (AGV), SSI Schaefer offers an innovative solution that is equally impressive in terms of its flexibility and scalability. Changing customer requirements and fluctuations in demand can be managed at any time, both cost-effectively and at short notice.

Weasel® – quick and flexible

Standardised control software permits use regardless of the customer – there is no need for any complex installation and customisation work. As a result, short-term scaling of the system presents no problems.

The transport orders are generated by your in-house material flow system. A fleet controller manages the orders and assigns them to the relevant vehicles following release. The Weasel vehicles are equipped with a control system that executes the orders based on specified way points.

  • TU pickup of a variety of loads using the Weasel®

 

Integration and combination with an existing conveying system

By deploying small vehicles, even inaccessible zones can be put to good use. The Weasel transports bins, boxes or small parts of varying dimensions, and can be combined with a conventional conveying system. Special handling systems are used to load the Weasel and then deposit its cargo via docking rails back onto the conveying system.
