Celluveyor

A highly flexible modular conveying and positioning system

Specifications

Wheelsomnidirectional
Patentyes
Object size15 x 15 cm
Maximum weight90 kg

Overview

The system consists several small hexagonal modules. These modules contain omnidirectional wheels, which are individually and selectively controlled by an electric motor. The special arrangement of the wheels as well as the selective control of the drives enables the logistics operator to move and to position several objects simultaneously and independently on any track. The Celluveyor covers complex material handling tasks in a minimum of space.

If a conveyor module fails during operation, this is detected by the controller. It will be disabled and bypassed by the packages. Thus, a complete failure of the system is prevented. The logistician can replace the defective module in a few minutes and send it for repair.

The intelligent control system automatically recognizes the layout of the system and configures itself. A change in the layout is automatically detected by the control software. It self reconfigures accordingly, which minimizes downtime. The celluveyor can parallelize and even reverse conveying processes.
