Timme Stapelautomanten GmbH`s vehicles consist of sturdy welded frames with built-in flange wheels that travel on rails recessed in the floor or screwed onto the floor. These vehicles are equipped with spur-wheel back-geared motors suitable to frequency-regulated or manual operation for soft starting, stopping and positioning. The drive motors of the wagons and mounted periphery are supplied with electricity through a electrical line that can be reeled in and out with a motor-driven motor line reel or conducted through energy chains depending upon the route length. The wagons may be designed for manual or completely automatic operation. The vehicle is equipped with safety sensors for completely automatic operation that immediately brake or stop if there is an obstacle in the travelling area.
