EK optimises customers' processes and delivers turnkey systems, from planning to implementation, for both existing and new plants. The focus is on systems and control systems with conveyor technology, warehouse technology, warehouse management systems and turn-key solutions. However, this is only one part of our offer. In addition, we offer you complete process automation from plant control to the MES level as well as process analysis and optimisation using KPI, OEE and HACCP. Our core competencies also include process automation with MES-CON OS as an integrated solution - whether manual forklifts, stationary conveyor technology, robots, storage systems or driverless transport systems. MES-CON OS integrates, controls and delivers the key performance indicators required to optimise the customer's processes, thus increasing effectiveness and reducing costs.
Perfect organization of the material flow with simulation
When using transport robotics and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in intralogistics, it is crucial to precisely analyse the respective task and then optimally plan and adapt the system - from the individual vehicle to the control of the entire system. In order to achieve the best possible result, we offer dynamic simulation of material flows. Complex intralogistics systems can thus be dimensioned to fit precisely. System boundaries, bottlenecks, correlations, plant modifications and alternative solutions can also be precisely mapped. Our dynamic simulation is suitable for the planning, representation and optimisation of material flows of AGVS based and AGVS independent systems.
Autonomous transport vehicles find their route by means of laser navigation (with reflectors), contour navigation (the laser explores the space contours), magnet point navigation as well as inductive or tape navigation. A combination of several types of navigation per AGV can also be used. Automatic transport systems have been around for over 50 years. They are actually a sub-category of the mobile transport robot, which in future will make decisions and carry out its work interactively and decentrally.
