ROUNDABOUT WAY TO THE TARGET
HE FUTURE IS AUTONOMOUS
With the revolutionary MTA drive technology and the complete product range of differential and omnidirectional drive units, unlimited possibilities are created for automated guided vehicles by MTA.
To control the AGVs and AMRs, MTA offers a novel control concept with integrated safety functionality. Ready-made drive-related software functions simplify programming and reduce commissioning times.
MTA is the right partner for all conceivable motion sequences in mobile conveyor technology.
MTA’s travel drives are at home in open spaces, winding alleys or on straight tracks. The diversity of applications requires individual drive concepts. Thanks to our know-how and our innovative drive technologies, we are equipped for every new challenge.
Omnidirectional or Differential
Wheel Drives in the differential drive version are integrated drive units for free-running transport systems (AGVs, AMRs) and for rail-bound vehicles (shuttles). Depending on the application, the differential drives are implemented with or without gears (as direct drives).
The motor controller for drive control can either be integrated in the drive or mounted separately. High-resolution encoder systems ensure precise positioning. The integrated brake can be designed as a holding brake. For emergency stop situations, a version with a service brake is available. With MTA motor controllers for two axes, Wheel Drives are the ideal drive solution for automated guided vehicles. Whether as direct drive or drive with gearbox from 50 kg to 2,000 kg, a universal drive portfolio of differential drives is available. In combination with Mecanum wheels, omnidirectional motion sequences are also possible.
Wheel Drives are used in mobile materials handling technology for internal material transport and are used in free-running driverless transport systems or in rail-bound vehicles.
