Making material flow systems faster
As e-commerce grows, the digitisation of the industry allows for faster, more flexible and more efficient manufacturing. Still, material flow systems are lagging behind. The EU-funded Celluveyor project is developing a multi-functional software-driven conveying and positioning system that makes material flow systems faster, completely flexible and more efficient. The system's core consists of hexagonal cells with several individually driven omnidirectional wheels. These cells form a flat surface, in a 'Lego'-like structure, with the moving wheels uppermost. Objects sit on these wheels and can be moved freely. The main objectives of this project are to slash cell costs, expand the current functionality to include other types of objects as well as increase the overall hardware and software usability.
