Warehouse Automation

One-stop shop – everything you need from a single supplier


Autonomous vehicles are becoming increasingly important in intralogistics with no limits in sight for drive technology design of logistics solutions. The more intricate the product, the more intricate the components – including the motor solution. Dunkermotoren offers a complete package for AGVs/AGCs/AMRs consisting of motor, encoder, controller, and hub gearbox. Depending on customer requirements, this package is available with integrated or external controls solution with common fieldbus interfaces such PROFINET, EtherCAT, and Ethernet/IP as well as safety functions (STO). Due to their efficient design, the motor solutions are ideal for use in battery-power systems and their robust design allows for operation in harsh environments. The motor solutions from Dunkermotoren already offer a standard design for almost all challenges in material handling technologies.

Our Drive Components in use

  • Shuttle Systems
    Pallet or small container shuttle systems offer a wide range of opportunities for Dunkermotoren’s motor solutions. Be it in the traction drive, lifting mechanism, telescopic motors, finger motors, or belt drives, Dunkermotoren has the right motor solution for your every warehouse application.
  • Parcel Sorting
    When it comes to dividing, diverting, re-directing, or sorting items like letters, parcels, or pieces of luggage, our drives have already proven themselves over many years.
  • AGVs/AGCs/AMRs
    Automated Guided vehicles increase productivity and improve efficiency in warehousing. Dunkermotoren are used in combination with an integrated gearbox as traction drives, designed for high radial loads, and as lifting motors.
  • Palletizing Robots
    Robot palletizing systems from EGS Automation for fast and flexible palletizing. Shorter cycle times are achieved through optimized programming sequences. EGS Automation offers the user intuitive operation and handling of the robot system. Universal and modular gripping tools are suitable for a wide variety of workpieces. EGS robots communicate via a wide variety of bus systems or OPC UA. By means of sensor technology or image processing, the parts are identified.
  • Strapping
    For the field of strapping technology (both stand-alone and line-integrated), Dunkermotoren offers intelligent and controllable drives from strap unwinding to strap sealing solutions for all sub-steps of this packaging and load securing process.
  • Bots
    The importance of robots in small-parts warehouses is ever-growing. Motor systems from Dunkermotoren can be used to lift product bins in the warehouse or even the robot itself.
