Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2019201798A1] A conveyor system (10) has a conveyor section (12), at least one first moving trolley (14, 14'), which carries along a dedicated drive (44) and is movable with the latter along the conveyor section (12) and which has a first trolley parameter (BL), and a controller (30, 46) which, taking into consideration the first trolley parameter (BL), triggers various actions with the aid of waypoints (60, 62, 66, 68) along the conveyor section (12). For more flexible use of the conveyor system, at least one second moving trolley (14, 14") having a second trolley parameter (NL) differing from the first trolley parameter (BL) is provided, and the controller (30, 46) is designed to place at least one waypoint (66, 68) along the conveyor section (12), at which waypoint a certain action is triggered, for the second moving trolley (14, 14") at a different position along the conveyor section (12) than for the first moving trolley (14, 14').
