Modular Production


Since the early 1900's, production lines have been built to cater to the needs of standarisation. Living in the era of mass customisation, new requirements have appeared, and with them, the need for a new industrial revolution, the need for
Modular Production.

independent

Every station is an independent module. Line dependency is no longer a restriction. Modules can go on- and off-line whenever needed, without affecting eachother.

variable

Each product creates its own virtual variable process sequence, making the optimum decision of where to go next after every working station, thus balancing the system.

smart

All products and materials are transported across the shop floor on top of smart robots, going only where needed, minimising losses, and boosting efficiency.

flexible

Modularity makes every production system scalable and adaptable. Modular production can take any shape and size, adapting to your needs.

Our Offer


Our software brings Modular Production to life. It controls and operates factories and warehouses with real-time visualisation.

Key benefits:

  • Modular Production system;
  • Perfect traceability of products and materials;
  • Just-in-sequence logistics;
  • Simultaneous operation and simulation of different scenarios;
  • AGV swarm smart management.

Our software comes with different modules:
  • Simulation;
  • Planning;
  • Operation;
  • Production and/ or Logistics.

measure

First step is always getting to know the current system. With our software, you can have an accurate picture of the current situation, focusing on chosen Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). You can strip down the whole system, and analyse what is going on in detail.

create

Once bottle necks and efficiency drains have been identified, you can easily alter the input variables and see how they affect production. With a tool this powerful, you can create as many scenarios as needed, and compare results instantly.

run

Our core product is an innovative solution for capacity, flexibility, and saturation problems that cannot be properly addressed in a production-line approach. We offer a real time commander for Modular Production, with full integration of logistics, and end-to-end communication.

predict

With full implementation of our system, the commander allows to simulate production, and being ahead of any possible capacity problems that may be encountered in the near future. Being flexible has never been easier.


Meet arculee: the most compact and versatile AGV in the market.

The arculee product family is arculus’ ambassador in-situ. They become a part of our customer’s staff, performing tasks in factories and logistics centres, in the most reliable and economic fashion.

They play a decisive role: it falls upon them to deliver and bring to reality the benefits of Modular Production.

navigation

With both wireless and marker-based navigation, arculees are capable of exploring every bit of your factory plant. Just set the limits, and let them do the rest.

safety

arculees know how to behave around people. With incorporated SICK scanners, our AGVs will avoid any obstacles in their way, ensuring the safest operation.

energy management

All arculees are aware of their energy levels, and incorporate an energy run as one of their tasks. After finishing on-going tasks, they set out for some more power.

smart fleet

With a centralised communication, arculees manage their tasks as a whole. Helping is their nature, and whenever needed, they will relieve a fellow AGV from a specific task.

About Us


These are our team's values. We work everyday to make sure we offer the best work environment possible.

reach for the stars. Our company relies on new and innovative ideas. We value curiosity, creativity, and especially ambition.

the round table. Each and every one of us has his/ her own experience, both academic and professional. Discussions are to be approached with humility and an open mind. Every opinion counts, and every idea is to be weighted.

transparency. Communication is key for success. Everyone deserves to know what is going on in our company, and we intend to make it happen. We are all together in the same journey, we are all part of the same team.

a clear mind is more productive. We want teammates with a good work/ life balance. Family and friends, healthy lifestyle, and a generous sleep schedule are the three major factors to a productive mind.

trust. We are confident that all teammates are diligently applying themselves to the problems at hand. Not everyone works at the same pace, and not everyone needs the same time. We trust in our colleagues' ability to manage their own times, while holding themselves accountable to the same high standard.

do it right, do it better. At arculus, we insist on building high quality, technically sound solutions. Years of experience in high demanding work environments and different industries have given us a singular appreciation for doing things the right way. We are embracing the challenge of creating a new solution to address new and future problems in producing highly customised products.
