Loading trucks autonomously in three steps

The focus for TRAPO at this years LogiMAT, taking place from May 31 to June 2 in Stuttgart, Germany will be on the upgrade of the autonomously moving TRAPO Loading System (TLS series) – with its new pioneering features. Slimmer and with optimised sensor technology, the loading system is picked up by the TRAPO Loading Mover (TLM Series) and moved by rail or wheel drive with the benefit that just one TLS can serve several loading bays in a highly efficient way.

At the show, a production-ready system with components of the industry standard will be presented. Hardware and software come from a single source, and the customer has a single point of contact for all matters. Another plus: The TLS, which will go into series production, will also be presented electrically in a modular design. The compact, autonomous loading and unloading system eliminates the hectic danger zone between warehouse and truck. In combination with automated guided vehicles, it replaces the usual forklift transports between production, warehouse and loading zone.

Visitors willl see the TLS 3600 with its hub in partial function; in addition, exciting, cinematic insights into the ongoing production of the TLS development partner, JERMI Käsewerk GmbH, will be provided for the first time. More than 12,000 tons of processed and fresh cheese and around 28,000 tons of packaged cheese leave the plant there every year. A new hall was planned and automated together with the TRAPO team especially for logistical processes: with high-performance layer palletisers, warehouse logistics, a swarm of automated guided vehicles and autonomous loading with the TRAPO loading system.

Said Jonas Tenkamp, Development Engineer Research & Development, TRAPO: “We thank our development partner, Managing Director Gerhard Jerg and the JERMI team for their innovative spirit and passionate support of the TLS implementation. They are pioneers for this future-oriented, completely autonomous solution.”  For more visit trapo.de/en or Hall 5, stand #D35
