The intralogistics industry is once again meeting at the LogiMAT trade show in Stuttgart in March. New technologies, products, systems, and solutions intended for rationalizing, optimizing, and reducing the costs of internal logistics processes will be presented from the March 19 – 21, 2024. ebm‑papst will be showcasing tried-and-tested new drive solutions at Booth 6F31 in Hall 6.
Another highlight at this year's trade show booth in Stuttgart is the ArgoDrive. This compact driving/steering system from ebm‑papst was officially launched in 2021 and is currently the benchmark when it comes to drives for free-range vehicles. Manufacturers of automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) can therefore rely on a safe, tested, and adapted drive unit for use in their vehicles. In combination with drive controllers from various manufacturers, the ArgoDrive driving/steering system forms a functioning drive system that enables free-range mobility for driverless transport vehicles. The effort required for implementation is reduced to a minimum, meaning that it can be put into practice quickly in the field. The trade show booth will show examples of how the ArgoDrive can work with vehicle and safety control systems from different manufacturers.
Shuttle applications that pose high requirements of drives
In addition to the ArgoDrive, ebm‑papst will also be showcasing its constantly growing modular drive system. Alongside the established ECI 42 and ECI 63 sizes with various integrated electronics and interfaces, the ECI 80 size is now also available. BLDC drives with safety extra-low voltage have a rated output of up to 750 watts. These powerful yet compact drives impress with a robust aluminum housing and satisfy the requirements for the IP54 degree of protection as standard. The modular drive system includes various planetary gears with different reduction ratios as well as encoder and brake modules. In intralogistics, ECI 80 size ECI drives are used in combination with robust Optimax planetary gears, primarily in shuttle applications, but also in conveyor, storage, and sorting systems.
