The industry has experienced an enormous boom in recent years. Automated guided vehicles can be used to efficiently plan tasks in warehouses or production environments, and they are excellent for repetitive tasks and transports that occur at a high rate. Safe stopping and holding of autonomous vehicles requires brakes that are built into the drive unit to ensure workplace safety during operation. For industrial trucks, Kendrion INTORQ is already the market leader in Europe for spring-applied brakes. "This applies to vehicle classes 2 and 3, which is actually all electrically driven industrial trucks except counterbalanced trucks," explains Frederik Mönks, Key Account Manager at Kendrion INTORQ. This experience, combined with modern, agile working methods and a broad, tailored product portfolio are used to meet all the requirements of this young industry.
