As if by magic: precise hydraulic steering for containers

The Terex® Gottwald automated guided vehicles built by Terex Port Solutions move containers around the port area, transporting payloads of up to 70 tons between the quay and the storage areas – and entirely without a driver. The Düsseldorf-based manufacturer chose the scalable and programmable HNC100-3x axis control, made by Rexroth, to achieve precise hydraulic steering for the vehicles. Communications with the central PLC are quick and fault-free while the axles assume the specified steering angle without hesitation. Even in the rugged industrial setting of a marine port, like that at the HHLA Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA) in Hamburg, this technology easily masters all its tasks.
