MAX, the first autonomous vehicle for heavy loads transportation integrated in industrial environment
MAX is a safe and environment-friendly transportation solution aiming at optimizing aluminium production operations. Its name refers to its key robotic features: M for Modular, A for Autonomous and X (cross) for its capability to operate between the different parts of the plant
Connected to the LISA-FM (Logistic Integrated Solution for Aluminium – Fleet Management) intelligent workflow system, MAX can continuously and autonomously circulate within the plant, whether indoor or outdoor, safely operating and transporting heavy loads up to 12T.
Thanks to its guidance technology, MAX can be integrated to existing operations without any additional equipment. Its effective implementation is scheduled for the first quarter 2020.
