Universal Carrier System AGV

The Universal Carrier System is a modular, scalable AGV platform (AGV – Autonomous Guided Vehicle). It is highly configurable and the ideal solution for industrial manufacturing environments. From small cobots to complex machines and logistics systems, Broetje-Automation offers AGVs based on the Universal Carrier System with a large variety of load capacity and high-precision positioning. The innovative SLAM navigation system is based on latest LIDAR technology.

Combined with the proprietary omnidirectional wheel technology the system offers highest flexibility, robustness and precision for your production environment. Proven standard components ensure low operating costs and easy maintenance. In combination with our state-of-the-art software, the universal carrier system is perfectly qualified for clean floor automation in industrial production.

Aircraft Production goes “GREEN” – Broetje-Automation Collaborates with Airbus Aerostructures to Promote Sustainable and Resource-Efficient Production

Broetje-Automation has successfully collaborated with a broad industry consortium to identify ways to reduce the environmental impact of today’s production facilities. The “GREEN” project, a joint initiative of a consortium of partners including OFFIS e.V., DLR e.V., ProIng and Broetje-Automation GmbH under the leadership of AIRBUS Aerostructures, developed measures to reduce the power consumption of old systems by up to 85% in certain areas of application. Overall, especially retrofitting older systems allows significant contributions towards a more sustainable industrial production.
