Automated overhead monorails have proven themselves indispensable as a rational, space-saving transport solution throughout many industries.
The AFT electric monorail system (EMS) is a top-suspended conveyor system effortlessly dealing with all kinds of transportation tasks within limited spaces inside your company. Usually anchored on 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 transport, but also sort, store, buffer, prepare and deliver goods and materials just on time in a highly efficient and nearly noiseless way. An always precise handling and positioning of goods is ensured by the EMS-Vehicles advanced goods recognition, tracking and sensing technologies. The EMS also masters raises and slopes at steep gradients to be a perfect link between workshops and assembly spots equipped with mounting aids as lift-or-dip stations, component jacks or building platforms, naturally also part of our solutions.
