With Smart Move we offer cost-efficient transport solutions for all industries.


Series floor conveyor vehicles as driverless transport systems

For more than 20 years EK AUTOMATION has been automating production vehicles of well-known manufacturers of industrial trucks. We equip these production vehicles with navigation and control systems and adapt the entire system to customer requirements. Since these systems work with prepared modules, we can offer a cost-effective entry into the technology of automated guided vehicle systems for many applications in different industries. Other advantages of series production vehicles include short design and commissioning times, fast deliveries and flexible adaptation options. In addition, the vehicles can still be operated manually - e.g. for special tasks. We offer EK series equipment as tractors, low-lift trucks or high-lift trucks.

What distinguishes the SMART MOVE:

Large selection of navigation systems, suitable for every application. Driving routes can be easily set via entries at the operating terminal.

Service friendliness
Easy access to all electrical and control parts due to centralised arrangement of the front control cabinet. Operation via the user-friendly touch-screen terminal.

Safety and security
Optional side safety edges and non-contact obstacle detection round off the package.

The LINDE P30C with our BC315 on-board computer quickly pays for itself with low engineering costs and short commissioning times.

The LINDE P30C can be recharged with the on-board charger during transport breaks at any 230 V socket. This means that it is ready for operation for a long time thanks to its large battery capacity.

Manual operation
All manual functions of the production vehicle can still be used.

Use of components suitable for industrial use.

Quick installation
Direct benefit for production.
