EGEMIN TO DELIVER 13 HYBRID AGVS AND 4 TUGGERS TO MIDWEST RETAILER.

HOLLAND, MI—The discount retail giant based in the midwest currently uses several types of Egemin AGVs throughout its 8 facilities. Joining the existing hybrids, fork, and tugger AGVs are 13 new hybrid AGVs in a similar design to the current hybrids in the fleet and 4 new 35k tuggers. The retailer’s AGVs perform a variety of functions such as cross-docking, cement transport, and goods transport. These new vehicles will support a new facility currently being completed. The tuggers will eventually replace older tugger AGVs.

The Hybrids boast a 4050 lbs load capacity with a maxiumum lift height of 172”. They also have tilting and side-shifting masts with a total tilt range of 8° and a total side shift range of 200mm. The Tuggers have a maximum tow capacity of 35,000 pounds, putting them at the middle of the range of Egemin’s tugger offerings. The vehicles will be integrated into existing systems in 2016.
