Your specialist for system solutions in the special machine engineering sector across the world

Since it was founded in 1976, the name STROTHMANN has stood for innovations in the transport and handling technology field. With its huge expertise in customer-specific adjustments, STROTHMANN is a reliable partner with an international sales and service network.

The RoundTrack® system enables the internal transport of heavy loads up to 200 tons and the changeover from time-consuming and inefficient stand assembly to new, productive flow and cycle assembly. This leads to an efficient value-added process and a rapid return on investment. Advantages of the RoundTrack system are:


  • Energy efficiency
  • No abrasion
  • Installed flush with the floor
  • Long service life
  • High repeat accuracy
  • Increase of effectiveness up to 30%

STROTHMANN supports you in planning in the fields of intralogistics and/or flow/cycle production and develops complete solutions for you, from simple manually movable carts to fully automated guided vehicles (ATGVs) with a corresponding safety concept. Especially for large and heavy loads, our customers rely on our track-guided driverless transport systems.

Big-name customers use our Automated Track Guided Vehicle systems (ATGVs) on the RoundTrack® installed in their production facilities. The track-guided transport carts use, for instance, an inductive energy supply to move through the production lines – fully automatically.


  • Flow assembly up to 100 tons
  • Variable chassis design
  • Precise positioning with repeatable accuracy
  • Maintenance-free system
  • High energy efficiency
  • System on floor level without any abrasion
  • Several energy supply concepts
  • Integration in operating control systems
  • High return on investment

Due to the very high repeat accuracy achieved with our ATGVs, interactions with other machines are also possible.


The Press Automation division covers the development and integration of complete new automation systems for press lines. We develop, build and supply customer-specific solutions for the following areas:



  • Front-of-Line for cold and hot forming lines
  • Feeder and transfer systems for hot forming lines
  • Feeder systems for interlinking press lines
  • End-Of-Line (shuttle, orientation robots, conveyor belts)
  • Automatic stacking of finished parts
  • Condition monitoring

For new plants as well as for the modernization of existing plants we have the adequate solution for an optimized, efficient production. With our extensive know-how and many years of experience, we can find the right solution even for unusual tasks.


The product and system portfolio of our handling systems covers the entire range of products and turnkey solutions for the automation and optimization of industrial handling processes. The branches or target industries include:

  • Wind power/power generation
  • Switchgears
  • Packaging
  • Machine Tools
  • Furniture/wood
  • Composite/plastic

Our customers benefit in particular from our many years of experience and process knowledge which leads significantly to productivity increases and energy savings in plant operation.
