The origin of ASTI team relies on the company where they all work and develop new solutions for the internal logistics. In this entrepreneurial environment, specialists from different areas work together to provide global solutions for the intra‐logistics improvement.
With this goal in mind their work starts with understanding the customers’ problems to come to the best solution after a precise team‐work design.
Their youth is linked to a spirited hearted attitude that encourages them to always think that everything can be done what implemented with their technical capacity it mostly is or at least will be. Their different aptitudes complement each other perfectly giving as result a complete young team highly qualified.
As ASTI employees they have had to face multiple challenges in terms of mechanical design and technology development or improvement. The company supports R&D policies, contributing to invest in the study of new technologies.
For example, in 2008 they got the award “innovative product” for its dual guided AGV (laser and magnetic). This was only the beginning, a few years later they developed an AGV system that implemented up to three guiding systems: magnetic for directing the vehicle, shapes to move along an autoclave and laser pointer to control and correct the distance to the autoclave walls.
The company patented in 2010 an omni‐directional wheel that permits their AGVs move 360°. Once the mechanical part was on duty the IT part of the system had to be redesigned in order to configure the vehicles with all‐sense movements in automatic mode.
A year later, in 2011 they got a new “innovative product” award, this time for the EasyBot range, a system formed by small vehicles perfect to tow small loads in assembly chains. They are always trying to offer new solutions, currently they are working on the implementation of AGVs with different handling systems on board. This way the handling operations can take place at the same time that the transport ones, saving time and improving efficiency. They have been able to add to an AGV a handling system to pick load from different stations and different conveying systems that work as a buffer letting the machine pick several items along a route.
This can be possible for their high control on mechanics, IT, communications, electronics … the perfect complete team to face new challenges.
