In an article published in the Charleston Business Journal, titled, “Robotic forklift truck offers options for warehouses,”
“There are no wires, no lasers, no magnetic tape,” said David Noble, Seegrid’s director of sales and marketing. “You don’t need civil engineers to come into your facility and plot GPS coordinates.”
Seegrid’s robotic industrial truck, built on an off-the-shelf Class 1 forklift chassis, is equipped with Seegrid’s vision-guided autonomous navigation system. Robotic trucks can be set up in hours rather than weeks or months, with no IT integration required and no need to modify the facility.
The truck uses a visual guidance system to plot the warehouse layout and memorize routes. Noble said, “The market is demanding robotic trucks and autonomous vehicles. Whether manufacturers or distribution centers, companies are seeing immediate bottom-line impacts. The robotic industrial trucks allows for greater productivity, improved safety, and lower operating costs. Customers order today, ship next week, and start moving pallets the day the robots show up.”
The machine also can perform multiple routes for one shift and easily can be programmed for routes on second and third shifts. The software is easy to modify so that the machine can be adapted for new tasks.
Seegrid offers solutions that optimize workflow processes by increasing productivity and reducing costs, creating economic and operational advantages. Seegrid will be exhibiting at booth 1531 during ProMat2013 January 21st -24th. Seegrid invites readers (www.seegrid.com/
