Microtecna Engineering Via Roncaglia, 5 CH-6883 Novazzano

AUTOMATED GUIDED VEHICLES (AGV)

Microtecna interdisciplinary team-skills show here the best benefits for OEM companies or for End Users that need AGV based solutions.


We are able to create (in collaboration with your technical departments) uniques and innovative logistics architectures in order to reach new and challenging goals.


Our vast experience in different industrial sectors gives a boost in the choose of the best technological and mathematical approach for each engineering problem.


Once an AGV architecture is set, our team is able to design, develop and release the prototype for you.
On the other hand, if you don’t need this kind of service, we can help you with the mechatronics and software development only.


Once a prototype is deployed, we are also specialized in following you with all the required maintenance and with the management of the industrialization process of the new logistic solution.

A vast platform design and produced in order to manage complex AGV-based logistics processes.

Microtecna Logistic Platform (MLP)

Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL

Using the powerful Microtecna’s MLP Platform, we created special automated guided vehicles able to load and unload beamlets from/to production looms and warehouses. These AGVs have omni-directional capabilities and can operate safely with people around it. Our Natural Navigation System allows simple plant deployments with minimum impact on the industrial environment where it will be used. It is very accurate (vehicles are approx. 3.5 m long, 0.6 m wide and can operate inside loom-corridors 0.9 m wide). The system is controlled by a single Control Station that automatically manages process flows, missions, traffic issues and ERP integration. The plant is also integrated with an external warehouse control system that manages the beamlets’ I/O. The system is integrated with an external ERP for process data synchronizations. Operators make request to the system using rugged mobile devices provided by Microtecna.

Industrial AGVs for Automatic Looms Management

Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV, TRACEABILITY, PROCESS CONTROL, TRAFFIC CONTROL , ERP/MES INTEGRATION, PDA

Using the powerful Microtecna’s MLP Platform, we created compact automated guided vehicles able to transport production materials on proper (and customizable) rollers. These AGVs have omni-directional capabilities and can operate safely with people around it. Our Natural Navigation System allows simple plant deployments with minimum impact on the industrial environment where it will be used. The system is controlled by a single Control Station that automatically manages process flows, missions, traffic issues and ERP integration. The plant is also integrated with a built-in roller control system that manages the production lines’ rollers using PLCs and Inverters provided by Microtecna. The system can be integrated with external MESs and ERPs.

AGVs for Hospitals Beds Transporting

Keywords: LOGISTICS, AGV

Using our expertise in AGVs, we have been able to completely upgrade the automation and IT technologies used in existing AGV-based solutions for beam transport. 
Normally these AGVs are based on custom electornics and it’s difficult to find replacement parts on the market. We removed all of these parts and retrofitted all the electronics and motion control technologies with industrial-grade ones. At the same time we created a custom Control Station that automatically manages process flows, missions, and ERP integration. The system has been integrated with an external ERP for process data synchronizations.
