The installation of the automated guided vehicle system at Dinex in Middelfart (Denmark) has been successfully completed last April. Dinex manufactures exhaust systems for trucks, busses, industrial machines, etc. Due to the enormous expansion of its activities Dinex decided to invest in extending its storage capacity and optimizing its production. Dinex engaged Danish Langebaek Logistik as logistic consultant for the entire project. Langebaek chose for Egemin to take care of the internal transport in the production plant by means of automated guided vehicles.
The AGV system installed at Dinex transports exhaust components from the warehouse to the various production stations. The pallets with finished goods are either transported back to the warehouse or directly brought to the despatch zone. The system consists of four laser guided Fork Lift Vehicle (FLV) AGVs that receive commands from the E’tricc system through the plant’s wireless network. In turn, E’tricc (Egemin Transport Intelligent Control Center) continuously communicates with the Dinex host system.
