TUCKER GmbH, headquartered in Giessen, was founded in 1959 and is part of the Black & Decker Corporation. Over 1,100 employees develop and produce innovative, high-quality fastening and joining technology for distribution around the globe. The manual transport of small parts from the warehouse was automated using KNAPP’s Open Shuttles – autonomous mobile robots. The Open Shuttles move on the shared travel paths and supply two workstations near the dispatch sorters with small parts. While on the move, they have to dodge obstacles such as other transport vehicles (forklift trucks, pallet trucks, etc.), persons in the warehouse and any pallets that have been left in the way.
