This paper describes the problem and the technical solutions involved with integrating different handling axles with conventional overhead electric running gear. In addition, possible fields of application will be described, the individual influences of which have considerable effects on the design of the handling components. Beside simple handling operations, such as storage and retrieval, complex applications, such as multi-machine operation and order picking are included. In conlusion, the realization of an experimental installation and the results obained will be presented.
