Simply put it’s the replacement of manually operated Mechanical Handling Equipment with robotic operated machinery.
As more and more businesses embrace Industry 4.0 benchmarks, investment in automation and advanced technologies are at the forefront of company’s strategic decisions. With a wide range of options available for the automation of warehouses, Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGV) remain one of the best investments to consider. They come in two formats:
Scalable, more efficient and easy to implement...
There are many reasons why you should invest in robotic handling for your intralogistics set up. Here are just a few main ones:
It is quite common for AGV’s to be compared with investment in fixed automation, for example conveyor belts. Both are essentially used to transfer goods from one point in a warehouse to another. However, one major advantage of the AGV system is the ease of implementation. AGVs operate with an advanced navigation system, which maps the warehouse and simultaneously uses technology like cameras and lasers to move pallets etc. This means that there is no additional infrastructure or other requirements needed to implement an AGV system, keeping your existing warehouse and operations intact. An AGV system also scores when there is a potential need to scale up the operations after a few years.
