Material handling (warehouse technology and conveyor technology) and automation are terms that generally go hand in hand now. The transitions are fluid. Constantly high quality and functional safety are the main requirements of an industry that has made it its business to provide for the safe, smooth and efficient flow of all kinds of products. The tools range from simple lifting devices, conveyor belts, cranes, lifting platforms and industrial trucks to automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) and highly complex, fully automated intralogistics systems. Particularly in the area of controlling the flow of goods and information, a constant and dynamic transformation is occurring thanks to state-of-the-art distribution centers and new order picking concepts in the age of Industry 4.0.
Framo Morat has been supplying this industry with drive components for many years. A small fraction of these includes rotor shafts for electric motors of industrial trucks, drive systems for automated guided vehicle systems or scissors lifts, standardized or customized planetary gears for drum motors, drives for conveyor belts or lifting spindle drive for handling systems.
