With the addition of camera technology that uses 3D imaging and real-time data capture, the functionality of the supplier’s line of automatic guided vehicles has been enhanced, enabling them to more effectively interface with loads.
The vehicles can now locate pallets automatically, accurately pick them up and drop them off at more complex locations, and compensate for broken bottom boards or stretchwrapped pockets. By increasing the vehicles’ flexibility, the cameras ease the transition from manual trucks, reducing costs, increasing productivity and improving safety. Additionally, all vehicles are equipped with 360-degree obstacle detection to safely navigate by avoiding other vehicles and pedestrians.
They use laser triangulation for guidance, navigating without tape, stickers or magnets. Standard, fork-style units handle up to 5,500 pounds
and reach heights up to 20 feet.
One of the most common applications for automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), automated movement of pallets makes your operation run smoother. The standard design and uniformity of pallets make them a natural load for automation. Even though the exact dimensions and weights of the final pallet loads may vary, all standard sizes fall well within the capabilities of our standard forked and unit load AGVs. Many manufacturing and distribution facilities have automated their very routine, repetitive pallet movements.
