BoDo II - The SAHM BobbinDoffer

In its latest generation, the mobile, fully automatic doffing and transport system BoDo II is once again setting new standards in bobbin and tube handling. The pick-up of bobbins at the winding machine as well as the set-up with empty tubes is performed entirely automatically – just like the transport of bobbins and their delivery to freely defined locations in the production workflow.

Working with centralized fleet management software, BoDo II robots operate as genuine team players and enable continuous 24/7 operation with an outstanding level of efficiency.

Bobbin handling. 24/7. Fully automatic.

Bodo II is the innovative solution for fully automatic bobbin and tube handling. It can be flexibly integrated into existing processes and enables round-the-clock operation. Physical strain on operators is reduced, processes are optimized – all with increased speed, efficiency, cost-effectiveness and ergonomic optimization.

Full flexibility

Freely definable radius of movement

Whether defining driving routes or pick-up and delivery points for bobbins and tubes - BoDo II is freely programmable and can be adapted to any production environment. With identical plant design, BoDo II units can even be exchanged between plants for cross-plant use.

Leading the way

Exact positioning

Leading the way

Exact positioning

With its integrated sensors and cameras, BoDo II perceives its surroundings and independently selects the most efficient route. Obstructions in the floor surface or areas that cannot be properly navigated can be easily defined in the software and will be by-passed by BoDo II.

Network integration

Intelligent fleet management

Network integration

Intelligent fleet management

BoDo II robots communicate with SAHM winding machines and are linked via intelligent fleet management software. This net-working enables fully optimized logistic and process workflows for the realization of a Smart Factory environment.

Safe and secure

360° environment detection

Safe and secure

360° environment detection

As a collaborative system, BoDo II ensures safe operation in conjunction with people, vehicles and machines. Two integrated safety laser scanners continuously monitor the surroundings and provide BoDo II with all safety-relevant information. When an  obstacle is detected, BoDo II reacts on the basis of the actual  real-time situation. Not being bound to a track, BoDo II can sim-ply drive around the obstacle, search for an alternative route or stop immediately, if required in an emergency situation. And all of this is done fully autonomously - without operator involvement.

Scalable

Solutions for any production capacity

Scalable

Solutions for any production capacity

BoDo II is a flexible, scalable system which offers a suitable solution for every production operation and for any output. Whether operating singly or with multiple networked BoDo II units – the system can be individually adjusted to all customer requirements and process details. And can be modified as required – making BoDo II the perfect future-proof choice.
