More than just an AGV

Movement forms the basis of every transport task. So why design a transport vehicle based on the benefit required for an particular task rather than using individual transport platforms to carry the load? TORsten is a modular AGV that drives under its loads and can be used to move transport platforms, common industrial load carriers and individual components weighing up to 3 tonnes through your warehouse and production halls both safely and – on request – completely autonomously.


What TORsten can do


In spite of its compact size, TORsten is a powerhouse and can carry a lot of weight. On top of this, its omni-directional drive concept makes it extremely manoeuvrable, thus allowing ergonomic, 360-degree assembly. Its self-teaching, free navigation system is the icing on the cake, making TORsten the hardest worker in your in-house logistics team.

  • Omni-directional drive
  • Load-bearing capacity: 1,200 kg
  • Speed: 0.6 m/s
  • Self-teaching, autonomous navigation system
  • Compact dimensions
  • Suitable for 24/7 operation

IFOY Award 2019 Nominee


We have been nominated for the IFOY Award 2019 in the "AGV & Intralogistics Robot” category. We were very proud to receive the IFOY Award in 2017. This year we will be competing again, with our MANIPULA-TORsten. Thanks to its flexible modular system, TORsten can even be used as a combination of an autonomously navigating AGV and a robot. For the IFOY 2019 scenario, the AGV has been equipped with a manipulator, transforming it into the mobile picker robot known as MANIPULA-TORsten. As it is not tied to any one location, it improves process efficiency and reduces production costs. It also has a built-in, inductive charging system to improve system availability.
