For Every Requirement the Proper Safety System


Protects you and your environment when you need it

Conventional industrial trucks moving on in-house routes must be safely controlled by the driver. In the case of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), the required safety must be provided by automatic, technical safety systems.

With the help of the latest safety systems in the vehicle, BeeWaTec´s industrial transport robots fulfil the relevant European safety provisions. Based on our experience the vehicles are equipped with additional safety features in order to not only protect human beings and machines in this crucial matter, but also to protect further material value, e.g. load, surrounding facilities as well as the Automated Guided Vehicle itself.
