The OCF—an abbreviation for "Omnidirectional Counterbalanced Forklift"—is an autonomous, omnidirectional, counterbalanced forklift operating with swarm intelligence. The fleets operate without a central control system, meaning the vehicles navigate the production facility or warehouse in a truly autonomous fashion. 


The OCF enables classic intralogistics tasks in incoming and outgoing goods, order picking and storage, as well as in production—provided that the transport is pallet-bound. The forklift can pick up pallets, lattice boxes, and other load carriers with a maximum weight of 3,300 lb., transport them to the destination, and set them down at a height of up to 63 in.


Using an omnidirectional drive concept, it can drive sideways through narrow aisles, turn on the spot, and maneuver in the tightest of spaces. The same lithium-ion battery technology ensures short charging and long operating times—just three minutes of charging allows for up to one hour of operating time.


The IGV fleets can be connected to customer software systems (LVR, ERP, WMS, MES, etc.) via an open API interface. An optional IO box enables the integration of external infrastructures, such as rolling gates and stationary conveyor systems, in the intelligent control system. An analytics module provides the user with all relevant operating data and KPIs.
