"An exceptional new development that has a wide range of applications and is child’s play to operate." That is how BITO-Lagertechnik Bittmann GmbH from Meisenheim is heralding the appearance of its LEO Locative at CeMAT - and it lives up to this promise. Unlike other AGVs, there’s no complex installation process involved, and the LEO Locative doesn't need any separate control system. To show how it works, this nifty AGV is appearing live at CeBIT 2016 in Hannover.
To operate the new LEO Locative, which can carry containers and boxes weighing up to 20 kilograms, all users have to do is lay out a visible track on the floor for the AGV to follow. Additional special markings ensure the system always knows where it is and thus guide it reliably to all targets. According to the designers of the simple LEO system, the visual tracks and markings are easy to change or even completely remove so that new tasks can be set up in no time. What’s more, LEO uses a patented transfer concept so that it can simply follow the track through a hand-over station, deposit its container and collect the next - all without any electronic aids or complex pneumatics.
