The Client

A German manufacturer of injection moulds for the automotive sector located near Stuttgart.

The Job Challenge and Environment

 The client briefed us that they wanted to move large injection moulds, weighing up to 40 tons, from one production facility to another. This involved operating both indoors and outdoors, which requires the flexibiity of being able to operate in variable environmental conditions.

The indoors working environment was relatively clean. The outdoors was obviously subject to variable atmospheric conditions with both low and high temperatures at different times of the year.

Morello’s Customised Solution

 Morello designed an AGV die cart with a natural guidance system that works both indoors and outdoors, and can be exposed to variable atmospheric conditions.

In addition, the AGV can work both on resin-coated concrete (inside the plant) and on asphalt with some sloping ground (external courtyard).

Thanks to its driving technology (natural driving) there was no need to install any ground guidance equipment inside or outside. Navigation takes place thanks to laser scanners capable of recognizing reference points in the surrounding environment.
