Grand opening event at Takeda Austria

Celebrating the start of swarm operation

Nov 26 2018

Grand opening of an IGV System at Takeda Austria in Linz. AGILOX has successfully implemented a IGV system at Takeda Austria in Linz with 2 vehicles in a very narrow area. It was a great honour to be part of the internal opening event with leaders from Takeda Europe. We are looking forward on many more successful projects together with our partner Takeda. Many thanks to Michael Blach, Thomas Braunreiter and the whole Takeda team.

Testimonial comment by Michael Blach, Director Supply Chain & Warehouse:

"Agilox IGV (intelligent guided vehicle) is an really impressive solution which positively inspires our key asset – people on the shop floor in the warehouse. A fast implementation timeline with almost no shut down times was vital for us. With a high professional can-do attitude on both sides we have successfully accomplished our 1st project milestone. Agilox has proven that also small presents (the famous “Linzer Torte”) can easily be lifted and transported during a Takeda Europe meeting/event at Linz plant in November 2018. We are looking forward to the next phase with Agilox to further roll out and next level system integration.”

360° agil and precise

Unrestricted freedom of movement

AGILOX is based on a surface movable drive concept. Operating space costs money. That's why it's better to use it for production than for logistics. 4 identical drive units, symmetrically arranged, cleverly operated with a lot of mathematics and control technology, enable movements in all directions - rotation at a standstill and parallel travel included. If a conventional AGV requires an aisle width of between 3 and 4 metres, AGILOX can cope with about half of it. And even better. Due to the freedom of movement, combined with the laser-based sensor technology, our IGV moves collision-free into any pallet that has not been precisely placed by hand.
