Effective. Flexible. Universal.
Design your individual intralogistics solution to suit your needs and ensure your success in the long term. Thanks to the SERVUS logistics modular assembly kit, Industry 4.0 is no longer just a buzzword. SERVUS combines the principles of “lean culture” with the benefits of Industry 4.0 in your company. The system ensures a high level of process assurance, is easily scalable and allows for optimum cooperation between logistics and production. An optimised material flow reduces unnecessary interim storage and thus frees up your “working capital”.

Servus ARC3 Transport Robot
The key element of the SERVUS system is the intelligent and autonomous SERVUS ARC3 (Autonomous Robotic Carrier Generation 3) transport robot, which can transport anything weighing up to 50kg. The ARC3 is not just an ordinary shuttle that runs back and forth in the warehouse. As a self-sufficient swarm robot, it travels out of the warehouse and always supplies its stored goods to the desired location in the company via the shortest route, at the right time (just-in-time).
And your SERVUS transport robots are individually adapted to your customer needs, in terms of length, width and performance. Depending on the equipment level, size or load handling device, everything from simple cartons or boxes, to bulk goods, or customer-specific parts can be transported.
Automated Storage and Retrieval System (ASRS)
Since the SERVUS transport robots travel out of the warehouse, the Servus ASRS is fully integrated with the flow process. Depending on the requirements, a SERVUS ASRS is suitable for slow movers or highly dynamic storage and removal, for single or double-depth storage, and for central or localised storage.
The combination of exceptional storage density and the highest storage capacity utilisation with direct access ensures maximum flexibility with low space requirements. Capacity and performance can be increased and adjusted at any time by adding more swarm robots.
Track and Assistants System
The guide elements are simple carrier sections without wiring and sliding contacts. The allows for a flexible route guidance and ideal adaptation to the current or a new infrastructure. The SERVUS track is predominantly overhead. This frees up valuable space for production purposes.
Assistance systems such as lifts or switches, are integrated into the route system and enable easy integration of local storage locations, assembly or picking stations on different floors and in different buildings. Lifts and switches help SERVUS during its journey. This is why we call them assistance systems. The SERVUS ARC communicates directly with the lifts and switches without a central control. This keeps the system scalable, fast and flexible.
Load Handling Device
Depending on the requirements, different load handling devices are integrated into SERVUS ARC3 for automatic loading and unloading of individual goods. The various load handling devices guarantee gentle and efficient handling of boxes, cartons, trays, bulk materials, or customer-specific workpieces at top speeds.
Software & Communication
The SERVUS system does not require a central control and works in a similar way to a taxi company. The ARC3 (taxi) receives its orders via various options. One of these options is the taxi centre. The taxi centre is directly connected to the Warehouse Management System (WMS), either to WMS by SERVUS or to any storage management system (Microsoft, SAP, etc.). However, with the WMS from SERVUS, the processes can be synchronised and efficiency increases in a superior way.
Connections and Stations
Individual system components, such as storage and removal stations, stations, assembly and picking stations or breathing buffers make the delivery and collection of goods possible at any location in the company. Due to Just-in-Time delivery, work-in-progress stock can be reduced and unnecessary storage between processes avoided.
Whether fully automated or manual workstations – you can connect all value-adding processes directly to your logistics.
