Benefits of Forklift Free Automated Tugger Solutions Profiled by Seegrid

Benefits of Forklift Free Automated Tugger Solutions Profiled by Seegrid

 
PRLog - Jul. 9, 2014 - Beyond safety and lean manufacturing, automated tugger solutions drive down cost normally incurred from labor wages, medical costs, and training expenses. Dori Kozak, Marketing Manager for Seegrid explained in the company’s latest blog, “Tugger solutions reduce costs associated with expenditures suffered from facility, equipment, and unsaleable product damage due to forklifts.”

Kozak spoke with Trilogiq's National Sales Director, Randy Blaylock regarding factors of forklift-free environments besides safety. Blaylock shared, “Complexity and efficiency are two key factors driving the current urgency for forklift-free environments. Virtually all manufactured products are becoming more complex as consumers demand more specialized features, color choices, and power options. This requires more part density in the line side assembly area, which in turn requires more forklift traffic to move the parts to the line with higher frequency.”

Automated guided vehicles provide benefits that make sense for companies suited for a forklift-free environment in terms of both reducing employee injuries and deaths, to reducing production costs through lean manufacturing. Given these additional cost burdens, safety considerations, and lean manufacturing initiatives, there is pressure to seeking alternatives to forklifts, especially where automated tugger solutions can accomplish the same job (material flow and movement) as they prove to be safer, more productive, and efficient than traditional forklifts.
