Boundary breaking AGV leaves workshop Handling Automation
Egemin Automation has successfully finished the production of the first of three of the largest paper clamp AGVs ever produced. The Automated Guided Vehicles will be used to handle exceptionnally large rolls. The laser-guided AGVs will be fit with large soft rubber tyres which allow for driving on no matter what floor condition, boundary breaking in the AGV world. The first AGV has left Egemin’s workshop for its final destination in the meantime.

Soft rubber tyres approved for any floor condition

For default AGV applications specific floor specifications need to be taken into account to allow operation. Thanks to the use of large soft rubber tyres Egemin Automation was not bound to any floor conditions. This flexibility leads to considerable cost and time savings. The AGVs navigate through the layout through a unique combination of coordinate-based laser navigation and natural target navigation resulting in extreme accurate load positioning.
