Product Portfolio
  • Automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS)

  • Automated guided vehicles (AGV)
    MLR is among the world's leading manufacturers of automated guided vehicles (AGV) for material flow systems, automation of production processes, and internal logistics. The vehicles automated by MLR include high-lift fork trucks, stackers and narrow-aisle stackers, high-rack stackers, platform trucks, tractors, and drive-under tractors.
  • Stackers, forklifts, fork trucks

    • Spreader stackers

    • The PHOENIX series automated guided spreader stacker is particularly well suited for heavy loads. Because the side arms surround the load during the lifting and lowering process, the center of gravity of the load is always within the wheelbase, which increases stability. The fork can be extended a very short distance, which makes the spreader stacker ideal for use in tight storage areas and alleys.
       
    • Drawbar stackers

    • The ISI-S series automated guided drawbar stacker is based on a standard high-lift fork truck. When picking up, it can switch from manual operation using the drawbar to automatic mode using sensors on the lift mast. In drawbar mode, the machine functions like a conventional fork truck. The advantages, such as a wide view mast, multifunction drawbar, and energy recovery remain entirely intact.
    • Side shift stackers

    • The ISI-S series automated guided side shift stacker is particularly well suited for picking and placing loads in tight alleys on side roller conveyors or a chain conveyor. With the telescoping fork that can be extended sideways, loads can also be removed from or placed on a shelf.
    • Telescoping mast stackers

    • The automated guided telescoping mast stacker is particularly well suited for picking and placing pallets and lattice boxes in shelf and storage locations. The hydraulically driven telescoping mast deploys for picking up. For transport, the mast is retracted to a lower travel position. This improves travel stability and less counterweight is required.
    • High-lift fork trucks
       

    • With PHOENIX series automated guided high-lift fork trucks, pallets, lattice boxes, and other containers can be picked and placed at floor level or in elevated storage locations. The lifting forks are lowered directly above the stabilizing arms in the freely navigating vehicle. Its small turning radius allows load handling under limited space conditions.
    • High shift stacker
       

    • On the PHOENIX series automated guided high shift stacker, the lifting forks are lowered directly above the stabilizing arms. This gives the freely navigating vehicle a smaller turning radius and is ideally suited for tight spaces.
    • Lift stackers
       

    • The PHOENIX series automated guided lift stacker is used for picking up, transporting, and lifting load carriers such as pallets, lattice boxes, and other containers. Because the load is picked up and transported within the wheelbase, the vehicle is particularly lightweight and nimble.
    • Telescoping fork stackers

    • The PHOENIX series automated guided telescoping fork stacker is particularly well suited for picking and placing loads in tight alleys on side roller conveyors or a chain conveyor. With the telescoping fork that can be extended sideways, loads can also be removed from or placed on a shelf.
    • Narrow-aisle stackers
       

    • The MAYESTO series automated guided narrow-aisle stacker is equipped with a telescopic table with forks that extend to the left and right, like a shelf picker, to load and unload units. Alternatively, it can also be equipped with a pivoting fork.
  • Other Vehicles

    • Care and service robots

    • The CASERO care and service robot will be used in residential care facilities and hospitals, as well as hotels, public entities, and offices for internal transportation.
      The transport vehicle can navigate freely and supplies patients in hospitals and residential care facilities with beverages and meals, and transports laundry, medications, and patient files between stations
      In hotels, the automatic vehicle can be used as a service robot and bring beverages and food to guests in their rooms, as well as suitcases and laundry.
      The basic vehicle has a platform that can be equipped with a customer-specific superstructure.
    • Motormouse

    • The MOTORMOUSE series is characterized by a high level of functionality at a vehicle cost that is well below that of traditional systems.
      The vehicles can be provided with various load handling devices and thus equipped for nearly any transport task in any industry.
      Its modular construction and the use of robust components make this type of vehicle particularly service and maintenance-friendly.
    • Drive-under tractors

    • The CAESAR series automated guided drive-under tractor drives under the loading rack, then carrier pins move upward and pick up the rack to transport it. Drive-under tractors are particularly well suited for transporting containers that are supported on rollers and have access beneath them.
    • Heavy-duty transporters

    • The CAESAR series automated guided heavy-duty vehicle transports large and heavy loads of up to 63 tonnes. The vehicle, weighing 12 tonnes and seven meters in length, has an integrated prism-shaped recess, so that coils of up to two meters in diameter can also be accepted. The automated guided vehicle (AGV) is loaded by means of a portal crane or stacker.
    • Platform trucks with roller conveyor

    • The CAESAR series automated guided platform truck is equipped with two roller conveyors mounted transversely, so they can accept two pallets at once and load them to a conveyor after transport. The very compact design makes the CAESAR series of automatic transporters only a little taller than the attached roller conveyors, with a transfer height of just 500 mm.
    • Platform trucks with belt conveyor

    • The CAESAR series automated guided platform truck is equipped with two belt conveyors, each of which can accept two stacks with containers. The transfer height to the materials handling systems is 700 mm.
  • Specialized vehicles

    • Vehicles made of stainless steel

    • Vehicles made of stainless steel
      Clinics and hospitals, as well as food production facilities, have special requirements for hygiene and safety.
      Upon request, the specialists at MLR can manufacture the automated guided vehicle (AGV) in stainless steel, and seal off all covers and lifting devices to meet protection class IP54. This allows the vehicles to be disinfected with hot steam on all sides—including from below.
    • Vehicles for outdoor use

    • If automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) are used in outdoor areas, they must be designed to withstand all types of weather. The components for protection of personnel must function reliably under conditions of ice, snow, and rain.
      The CAESAR P-14 Mr transport vehicle can navigate freely and was developed by MLR as a specialized outdoor vehicle. It can be used at temperatures as low as -20 °C.
      To protect the sensitive material being transported, the vehicle is completely designed to meet protection class IP54 and has an automatic sliding cover. The two halves of the cover are opened and closed by means of a hydraulic motor.
    • Vehicles for pharmaceutical production

    • The automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) used in pharmaceutical production are designed to conform to GMP and FDA requirements upon request.
      They can also be converted for various cleanliness classes and thus may be used in clean rooms as well. A sealing system ensures that they do not emit any gases or dust particles into the environment.

       
    • Vehicles for the paper industry

    • Paper rolls, which often weigh several tonnes, are particularly sensitive materials for transport. They require especially precise and gentle handling when being picked, placed, and transported.
      Because the forks on the PHOENIX series vehicles can be adjusted continuously, the vehicles can accept rolls of different diameters. To this end, the roll diameter is measured by a specialized sensor. The paper rolls can also be picked up from floor level using the lift equipment on PHOENIX vehicles.
    • Vehicles for paper rolls

    • The CAESAR model vehicle can travel freely and is equipped with prismatic forks that can be adjusted continuously in the horizontal direction. This enables rolls of different diameters to be picked. A special sensor measures the rolls and determines the roll diameter in each case.
      Two roller conveyors in parallel can also be installed above the prismatic forks of the automatic vehicle. The vehicle can then also be used to transport pallets
    • Vehicles for clinics and hospitals

    • There are automated guided vehicles (AGV) in stainless steel as well for clinics and hospitals. All covers and lift devices are sealed to meet protection class IP54. The automatic vehicles are protected against splash water and can be disinfected with hot steam on all sides—including from below.
      The use of AC makes the encapsulated drive particularly quiet.

       
    • Vehicles for clean rooms

    • The automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) from MLR can be converted to meet various cleanliness classes. A sealing system and gas-free batteries ensure that they do not emit any gases or dust particles into the environment.
