Global AGV was recently featured in Robotics Tomorrow magazine. Nic Temple, VP of U.S. Sales discussed the key advantages of autonomous forklifts with manufacturing journalist, TR Cutler. Read the article here.
According to Temple, "Some of the key advantages of autonomous forklifts are critical during the pandemic. A single unit offers a dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that may allow compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today's highly-complex manufacturing operations.”
Autonomously driven forklifts, whether in distribution centers, manufacturing, or some hybrid, are much more cost-effective than manned forklifts for extremely repetitive processes. They can be integrated into continuous round-the-clock operations covering several shifts. Self-controlling these trucks can coordinate perfectly in terms of routing and speed. This enables material flows to maintain optimal levels and the energy consumption is kept to a minimum. The additional benefit reported by facilities managers includes substantially less damage to shelving, loads, pallets, and other trucks, as they navigate more accurately and safely than manned forklifts.
Robotics Tomorrow is an online trade magazine featuring products, companies, news, articles, and events for the advanced manufacturing, factory automation, and 3D printing industries.
About Global AGV:
A single Global AGV unit offers dynamic flexibility, scalability, and reliability that allows compliance with safety requirements avoiding contamination. Automation reduces product damage and alleviates the ergonomic impact of repetitive, physically demanding tasks in today's highly-complex manufacturing operations.
Forklifts will be replaced every 5 – 7 years. A manufacturer currently operating just a few units will exchange the next forklift purchase in 2020 with an autonomous forklift to discover the true value that automation can bring to the operation. Autonomous forklifts provide automation which reduces movement costs per pallet and per case.
Global AGV driverless autonomous forklifts offer a straightforward interface solution: a simple point to point horizontal movement of pallets, offering the opportunity of buying only 1 or 2 units at a time. The breakthrough is selling an automated forklift as a product rather than a project. If the manufacturer wants a turnkey solution, a local network of system integrators is available. Global AGV customers order a standard product which can be delivered in weeks. Local partner integrators help to ensure a low-cost quick installation in just days rather than months.
