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.”

Efficient Energy Management

The energy system in the AGILOX is exceptional - we rely on the LiFePO4 technology, with integrated charging concept. The advantage is that the battery copes well with short charges and high currents. This means that we automatically use every logistic break without a transport order for charging, even if it is only a few seconds. If these slots are not given, no problem: charging for 4-5 hours of operation takes less than 15 minutes. The energy transfer is contact-based via a small charging plate at 48 VDC / 80A. On the primary side, 3-phase 400V are required with 16A fuse protection, easily plugged in via a CEE socket. The rechargeable battery Pacḱ and the charge are completely monitored by the integrated battery management system (BMS). The complete system of the new generation is certified according to UN38.3.
