Movanis has been developing its AGV technologies since 2008. As a Belgian company, they offer smart driverless systems to automate all goods transportation fully autonomously and 24/7. This is leading to significant reductions in operational costs and eliminating personal safety risks. “Damaging goods or infrastructures, staff shortages and disruptions, human errors, … most negative effects of manual driving can be excluded.” Adds Bart Clymans. "Safety is a paramount advantage, achieved through our innovative laser technology, including obstacle avoidance, effectively eliminating accidents. Furthermore, our philosophy is to adapt AGV’s to the factory, eliminating the need for major infrastructural changes." We have a proven track record in applications such as connecting buildings, end-of-line handling, heavy industry, and outdoor transportation.
Movanis serves clients in Belgium and internationally, spanning diverse sectors. "We convert every serial warehousing equipment into a smart driverless system with features such as automatic pallet detection, multiple pallet transport, bulk warehousing possibilities, heavy lifting capabilities, dynamic route planning reducing surface rutting, …" explains Bart. "This includes (counterbalanced) forklifts, side loaders, and tuggers. Notably, our AGV’s successfully navigate indoor and outdoor, conquering typical weather challenges with exclusive algorithms. They prove their worth daily, seamlessly overcoming worn ground, uneven surfaces, and slopes.”
Movanis understands the unique demands of various business landscapes. The AGV systems are crafted with unparalleled flexibility and scalability, making them adaptable to businesses of all sizes and industries. The automation of manual equipment into our AGV makes the transition seamless and effortless, and most importantly adaptable for even unknown future expansions. The implementation of AGV’s in your product flows will optimize processes, minimize errors, and accelerate productivity. Our in-house designed lithium-ion battery systems are integrated into every build. This results in automatically fast charging within 12 minutes and even opportunity charging during idle times to restore batteries to full capacity.
As the anticipation builds for LogiMAT 2024, Movanis invites attendees to witness the future of logistics automation firsthand. They will be displaying their counterbalanced AGV’s and presenting proven reference project solutions. The Movanis Team works from engineering, mechanical, and electrical construction, over software development into installation and training on-site, and even support, maintenance, and customer service. The company’s commitment to innovation and dedication to safety and efficiency positions Movanis as a frontrunner in the evolving landscape of automated logistics.
