Connventional vs. state-of-the-art production

State-of-the-art material supply

Conventional production

Supply using forklift

In detail that means: 

• low transport capacity:
  usually 1 pallet or 1 large load carrier                               
• high traffic volume    

• numerous empty runs
• high accident risk
• high investment and maintenance costs   


State-of-the-art production

Supply using tugger trains with 4 trailers

In detail that means:

• high transport capacity: often 4-5 trailers
• high-level flexibility when production layout
  changes or requirements fluctutate
• no empty runs

• low investment and maintenance costs
• flexible compilation of the tugger trains 
  (all trailers are combinable)
• safe handling
