Whereas the aerospace industry is transforming to keep up with the increasing production rate and intense competition, industries must adapt to the continuously changing environment, be more and more flexible and match the needs of tomorrow’s Industry 4.0. Therefore, in the aviation industry, many aspects of aircraft manufacturing will be highly automated, aiming at radically reducing production times and costs. Thus, ECA Group's AGV offer addresses the requirements of aircraft manufacturers and their supppliers of logistic equipment.
Logistics operations in production sites are also subject to these requirements. Designs for constantly innovative solutions will need to be developed to respond to these new challenges.
ECA Group has recently developed an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)robotic technology dedicated for airspace industry logistics applications in order to make these processes more cost efficient and safer.
ECA Group has already a renowned expertise in the field of navigation and automated vehicles operating autonomously in industrial and highly demanding environments such as smelters or nuclear plants... Sharing the same objectives, today's industry seek for new generation technologies able to increase the safety of industrial plants, optimize the productivity and reduce support costs as well as the footprint of the manufacturing process. To meet these requirements and bring a ECA Group On the latter, ECA Group has been focusing its efforts to improve the hybridisation of its AGVs and offer greener, electricity powered vehicles in the near future.
ECA Group’s knowledge and experience of aircraft programs associated to reliable and innovative technological Automated Guided Vehicles solutions allow now aviation industrials to automate their logistics for complex operations inside or outside their premises.
Another innovation developed by ECA Group experts is the system approach for AGV technology: Thanks to a dedicated software, industrials will be able to easily manage a whole fleet of AGVs for simultaneous handling while each one of them autonomously fulfills his mission.
Highly specialized in robotics, automated systems and industrial processes, ECA Group is actively involved in innovative industrial projects. Throughout several projects for major industry players, ECA Group has been designing and manufacturing complex Manually Guided Vehicles (MGV) and engineering Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV), with its technological expertise in the field of navigation and self-guided vehicle Technology.
Among the projects integrating this technology ECA Group worked in partnership with ;
