The story of the AUCOS system                            Naar de nederlandse versie van AUCOS

The revolutionary AUCOS system is the world first and only automatic coupling system which allows a turn-key connection between the kingpin and the fifth wheel using the patented AUCOS solution.

The revolutionary AUCOS system is the world first and only automatic coupling system which allows a turn-key connection between the kingpin and the fifth wheel using the patented AUCOS solution.

The AUCOS system allows tractor operators to remain in the cab, and automatically connects all air, electric and data between the tractor and the trailer.The system also provides an option to control the twistlocks and electric legs. In 2018 the system will acquire the following certificates: R10, R13 and R55. 
The AUCOS system improves safety as well as production efficiency. Less trips, slips and falls, and quicker turnaround times than traditional manual operations, which requires personal to connect and disconnect tractors from trailers by hand.

The AUCOS system is perfectly suited for applications and operations like container terminals, forwarding agencies, ocean ports, inland ports and distribution centers. In 2018 the systems gets a add-on that will send the weight data to the cabin using a CAN cylinder.

Currently ,the AUCOS system is operating in high volume and critical sites in Europe, The United States and Canada. AUCOS customers have experienced dramatic reductions in operator injuries and up to 30% increase of throughput after commissioning the AUCOS solution using the same fleet. Using AUCOS, our customers have also reworked their previous operational processes and optimized their operation taking advantage of the efficiencies deliverd by using AUCOS, providing these operations with advantages while competing in a global market. So far, over a million coupling and uncoupling processes have been done and that numbers is growing.

Each AUCOS system is completely “Made in Germany” and every AUCOS system undergoes specific and complex final tests prior to serving our AUCOS clients. Users of AUCOS go through detailed training for operation and service of the solution to ensure they receive maximum benefits and smooth trouble-free operations. RMM and Middelbos BV are with you all the way through the process; 100% quality; 100% service dedication.

Applications
Container terminals, forwarding agencies, ocean ports, inland ports and distribution centers; operations which have high numbers of coupling and uncoupling. Perfect for yard tractors using bomb carts, hazardous industrial applications, or large dedicated fleets of tractors and trailers where safety of personnel is key and throughput to the market is important.

Advantages
Increase safety by allowing the operator to remain in the cab during the entire coupling process Automatically connects all the critical components between the tractor and trailer Increase productivity with a quick return on investment by throughput improvements with the same fleet. Opportunity to increase throughput in your operation without increasing equipment. Easy operation and uptake for your team. Safer, faster and smoother processes contribute to a safer and more productive operation.

Technical details
Automatic connection of the air, electric and the data in a fraction of a second with the AUCOS system Integrated self-testing of the system for 100% safety and functionality Trailers equipped with the AUCOS system can also be operated manually by any tractor unit downstream in the delivery Optional: Transfer of trailer data for condition monitoring.
