More innovative technology from Lafert

26 April 2021

With the increasing employment of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicle) in factories and warehouses, there are great opportunities for companies that can supply compact, low-level, integrated motion control packages to manoeuvre them. An illustration of such technology is the ‘Smartris’ unit from Lafert. 

The Lafert Smartris is a compact, battery-powered unit comprising a Gear, Servo Motor, Drive and Wheel. It features a gear in-wheel design that provides low floor levels to help maximise an AGV’s space and load carrying potential. It is equally suitable for unit load carriers, tow vehicles, assembly line trucks and mobile robots.

Application flexibility for AGVs is offered thanks to various mounting options – including shaft rotation and frame rotation. Consequently, it is easier to incorporate into a vehicle’s design. In addition, there is a wide range of load capacity options to further extend the systems potential applications.

Another advantage of the Lafert Smartris is the fact all the major components - Gear, Servo Motor, Drive and Wheel - are produced by companies within the Sumitomo Group.

Smartris is another illustration of the innovative range of products from Lafert. Other examples include the company’s globally recognised high-efficiency, permanent magnet motors (offered with or without integral drive), and the ‘Marlin’ stainless steel motor range.  The IE4/IE5 permanent magnet synchronous motors can reduce motor size and weight by up to 50% whilst offering efficiencies exceeding the latest mandatory regulations, thereby future proofing your designs. The Marlin hygienic, wash-down motors offer IP69K/IP66 efficiencies and are complemented by stainless steel gearboxes and IP66 drives.
