High-lift transport robot with narrow straddle support. 

As a fully automatic high-lift transport robot with straddle support, the VARIO MOVE L can transfer loads at heights up to 4,500 mm. Modern laser scanners and an optimised chassis ensure stability, enable high positioning accuracy and guarantee safe load collection and delivery, even at great heights.


Counterbalance transport robot with cantilevered forks.

The VARIO MOVE CB counterbalance robot is characterised by high flexibility with its cantilevered forks. It is ideally equipped for transporting special load carriers and closed pallets. Due to its very compact design, with a high load capacity of 1,600 kg, the VARIO MOVE CB is the optimum solution for many tasks.


Omni-directional mobile transport robot with conveyors.

Specially designed for high-performance systems, the VARIO MOVE CTO has 1 to n conveyors and can operate omni-directionally. Due to its high manoeuvrability, it can also be used efficiently in tight production environments. A wide range of additional safety devices and equipment options are available for the VARIO MOVE CTO to optimise your task.


Transport robots with automatic conveyor technology.

Connected to the drive module via a universal interface, the VARIO MOVE CT is adapted to your specific task. One or more roller or chain conveyors can be combined with the VARIO MOVE drive module. Additional functions such as load hold-down devices can be provided. The VARIO MOVE CT is particularly powerful and reaches speeds of up to 2m/s.


High-lift transport robot with external straddles.

With its external straddles, the VARIO MOVE AS can be used to transport special load carriers and closed pallets. Its short wheelbase enables the VARIO MOVE AS to drive a very small turning circle and to be available for fully automatic transport even in narrow production areas and racking systems. The VARIO MOVE AS has lifting masts for lifting up to 4,500 mm and with a load capacity of up to 1,600 kg.
