The power of creative solutions

System Solution

The WorkflowLiner™ is a modular transport system and at the same time a mobile workstation system. This means that the FTF can be optimally integrated into any type of production environment. The WorkflowLiner™ software can also be individually adapted to different control systems.

The vehicle is suitable for use in assembly and production for products weighing up to one ton. The stepless, electrically driven lifting and rotating adjustment enables optimum accessibility with programmable holding positions.

Especially when handling very large and heavy components, the WorkflowLiner™ shows its ergonomic strengths and ensures effective and flexible production.

Automation technology advantages

The WorkflowLiner™ is designed for robust use on the shop floor and can be flexibly expanded with many functions.

  • Seamless integration into intralogistics systems
  • Load capacity up to 1 ton possible
  • HMI for worker guidance optionally on board
  • Versions for products in different sizes
  • Free space navigation with LIDAR environment sensors (optional)
  • Variant-controlled, autonomous approach of work stations
  • Lifting and rotating axes for optimum ergonomics

Easy integration into running systems

Reduction in manual load handling

Economic transportation

The WorkflowLiner™ enables versatile transport of components and materials. As part of our Flexible Assembly Solution, the WorkflowLiner™ can independently approach free cells in assembly and production environments and reduce possible waiting times. The WorkflowLiner™ is suitable for manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic processes.

Our system optionally uses work plans in list form (e.g. Excel), eliminating the need for direct PLC intervention. Battery charging can be done with cable connection or during operation via charging stations.

In combination with our control system, station operation and worker information can be provided directly via the HMI on the WorkflowLiner™.
