Automated overhead monorails have proven indispensable as a rational, space-saving conveying solution across many industries.
The AFT electric monorail system (EMS) is a suspended conveyor system which effortlessly deals with all kinds of conveyance tasks within limited spaces inside your company.
Usually anchored to parts of the buildings’ steelwork at otherwise inaccessible levels (e.g. below the ceiling), an EMS keeps floor space available for work and production.
By use of intelligently acting, autonomous vehicles on a monorail, the EMS can not only convey, but also sort, store, buffer, prepare and deliver goods and materials timeously and in a highly efficient and near noiseless way.
The EMS vehicles’ advanced goods recognition, tracking and sensor technologies ensure the constantly precise handling and positioning of goods.
The EMS can master elevations and slopes at steep gradients to form the perfect link between workshops and assembly locations.
Speed up to 120 m/min
High load capacity up to 5000 kg
Climb/descent up to 60º without assistance
Prime features of the suspended monorail system:
- Compact and space saving
- Intelligent and highly flexible solution for complex intra-plant logistics
- High availability and reliability, easy to maintain
- Highly efficient material flow, optimally manageable and cost-effective
- Compatible with all usual conveyor systems
- Optimally adaptable to any kind of warehouse, production, and assembly installations
Our AFTeco drive concept revolutionizes your EMS.
The AFTeco drive for the light EMS 200-2 consists of a gearless permanent magnet synchronous motor combined with a specially adapted control. This new drive technology generates energy savings of up to 50% compared to conventional drive technology and its compactness makes maintenance work much easier.
Thanks to the large number of systems AFT has installed in various industries, we have a wealth if experience to apply.
Electric monorail systems for the automotive sector, heavy-duty electric monorail systems for industry, special electric monorail systems for logistics, and many more.
