Kollmorgen Automation is part of Kollmorgen, which in turn belongs to the NASDAQ-listed Altra Industrial Motion group. The company develops and sells products and services related to automation solutions for applications that include warehousing and manufacturing. Kollmorgen Automation has its roots in a Swedish family-owned company (NDC - Netzler & Dahlgren Co AB) that was founded in the 1960s. It has been developing AGV solutions since the 1970s.

The need for flexible automation for material handling has now moved from being an interesting technology project for enthusiasts to conscious decisions made in the board room of Fortune 500 companies as well as the private owned, small sized company. Why? one may ask. Because the business case is very reliable, and the savings can be predicted if you know what you do.

Many of us do not truly understand or appreciate the underlying foundations for how and why mankind has achieved such enormous success and prosperity. More commonly, we are taught about problems with the world and the challenges that we will face in the future.

Becoming a Kollmorgen partner means you get access to NDC Solutions – a complete automation kit in constant development.

Want to join the industry 4.0 revolution but don’t know where to start? Here is how AGVs can make a real difference at a modest investment.

Successful CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) is about action. An often overlooked action to improve CSR is industrial automation with AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles). Well-known for their quick efficiency gains in industries and warehouses, AGVs such as mobile robots and tuggers also contribute to improving your environmental and social performance.

Automated guided vehicles work repetitively, never get tired and are easy for staff to get used to. An excellent way forward for any company that wants to improve safety at work – and as a bonus increase their productivity.

Automated guided vehicles minimize the need for manual labor in dirty, dangerous and demanding environments. In most conditions, they are resistant to or can be shielded against everything from magnetism and radiation to temperature changes, dirt and dust.

Trending in the automation world these days is the merging of the collaborative robot and the AGV, creating a mobile Cobot with the navigational capabilities of today’s AGV’s. This opens new opportunities in warehouse logistics that improves the entire supply chain. With additional power demands created by this combination, innovative motor and drive solutions become paramount.
