Creform Corp.    Greer, SC 29652-0830
Oct 29, 2009 With minimum turning radius of 17.5 in., Tite-Space BST AGV Tugger is suited for delivering to line-side assembly points where space is limited. Unit consists of drive motor, 24 Vdc power supply, and guidance sensors. AGV travels in single direction along magnetic tape guidepath at speeds of 4-50 m/min and glides under stationary pushcarts, engaging cart by extending catch pin into BST interface. Depending on floor conditions and caster selection, max towed weight/draw bar is 1,320 lb/57 lb.

Automatic Guided Vehicle incorporates 360° safety feature.

QComp Technologies, Inc.    Greenville, WI 54942
