The fourth industrial revolution and rapid development of new technologies define the modern industry. One of the main directions here remains in-house material handling within modern industrial areas with limited spaces, complex movement of carts, extreme operating conditions and industrial robotization.
The main trend in this niche is the use of self-moving trolleys and advanced customization of material handling equipment to individual requirements for moving a specific load. Few companies in the world produce self-propelled platforms in accordance with modern standards of quality, automation, and customization. One of them is an Italian company, Morello.
For more than 70 years, Morello has been manufacturing tailored industrial vehicles for metal, fuel and energy sectors, automotive, aircraft and shipbuilding, port and airport logistics, industrial parks, and oil and gas companies. Today this company of Giovanni Morello is one of the world leaders in the production of individual and AGV solutions for specific applications in material handling and industrial logistics: self-propelled battery and diesel carts, platforms and conveyors on a wheeled and rail track, tilters, tippers, special handling and lifting equipment for a variety of industries.
The key expertise of Morello company is the design and manufacturing of unique motorized carts and platforms according to individual projects and specific operating requirements. ISO 9001 and 3834-2 certificates ensure product quality and use of wear-resistant elements by the company to increase operational reliability.
Among the company's flagship products are customized battery-powered trolleys SGAI and OMNI. In terms of technical characteristics, the SGAI model is a universal fully electric solution for precise material handling, while OMNI offers improved payload and maneuverability thanks to Omni-directional steering. Both specifications offer plenty of customization opportunities including remote control systems and AGV option, traction control using electronics, possibility to combine carts, as well as a full range of scanners and sensors.
Another Morello expertise is to ensure safe operation in explosive environments with high safety standards for material handling equipment. ATEX-IECEx trolleys and platforms nowadays serve oil and gas locations around the world.
Morello AGV robotic trolleys are smart cars that can deliver large and heavy loads to their destination without driver assistance. This solution ensures full automation of on-site transportation and provides key features in automated logistics in open and closed industrial spaces. Morello stand-alone solutions come with software for any kind of navigation from inductive to dGPS.
Product quality and flexibility of individual orders define the direction of the modern machine-building market working with in-plant logistics. And this is the way of forward-looking companies to determine where the complex mechanism of in-plant logistics will turn tomorrow.
