Automatic guided carts (AGCs) and vision guided vehicles (VGVs) both represent the next generation in flexible material handling technology. Both of these material handling options integrate well with custom designed delivery carts to support material delivery in production, assembly, and distribution operations. Implementing an AGC or VGV system typically results in rapid return on investment along with an increase in productivity, safety, and quality.
Low Cost Automation
Low cost automation can be applied to any scenario where machines can support material flow and material presentation to create flexible material handling solutions.
Below is a video showing how an elevator system is used to move totes.
Small Train Delivery
Deliver totes from carts to line side racks without any human transfer effort. This can be done with tuggers, automatic guided carts (AGCs), or vision guided vehicles (VGVs).
Tote Transfer Systems
Tote transfer systems help you deliver totes from carts to line side racks without any human transfer effort. This can be done with tuggers, automatic guided carts (AGCs), or vision guided vehicles (VGVs).
The video below shows a demo of a Seegrid VGV transferring totes from a cart to a rack without human intervention.
Customised solutions can really benefit companies who aim to practice continuous improvement in Lean Manufacturing, because they are built to fit the available space and the workforce. For example workbenches, trolleys and flow-racks, customised to fit the needs of individuals will result in more efficient working, reduced repetitive strain injuries and increased productivity. Traditional … Continued
Automated Guided Vehicles* are transforming manufacturing as production methods get SMART and we move into the 4th Industrial revolution. Industry 4.0 takes LEAN manufacturing into the next generation by using smart technology and real-time data to increase productivity, eliminate errors and reduce costs. Objects recognition technology can detect sensors embedded within workflow and storage … Continued
