AGV Products Displays New Ergonomically Designed Laser Guided Unit Load Vehicle at ProMat 2002 - Booth 832
AGV Products, Inc., a manufacturer and integrator of Automated Guided Vehicle Systems (AGVS), will demonstrate a new ergonomically designed, laser guided Unit Load Vehicle during Promat 2003.
This enhanced vehicle design is equipped with conveyor and is specifically designed for variable height delivery, allowing for load transfers at a low 9-inch elevation. The design is ideal for stretch-wrapping and palletizing applications and for picking and replenishment applications where AGVs transport a pallet to the order picking station and product is manually selected and placed on the pallet for transport to a storage or shipping area.
The low platform, ergonomic AGV concept has shown previous success for AGV Products in other vehicle designs such as assembly type vehicles, installed at the John Deere plant in Augusta, GA. With the Unit Load vehicle, the conveyor can easily be removed when fork type vehicle applications are called for. Laser safety bumpers, which create an invisible area of protection around the vehicle, are standard equipment on all AGVP vehicles.
"Ergonomically designed AGVs integrate with manual applications which remain necessary and important in most AGV applications. Our goal is to continually improve the ease of use with our vehicles through enhanced vehicle designs and software advancements", states Debbie Bishop Marketing Manager for AGV Products, Inc.
AGV Products has been a supplier of automated guided vehicle systems used for robotic transport since 1988. Currently, over 1,100 AGVs built by AGVP operate throughout the world. AGV Products services a diverse group of industries, including aerospace, government, manufacturing, newspaper and printing, warehousing and automotive.
