Automated guided vehicles are used for tasks that would typically be handled by forklifts, conveyor systems or manual carts, moving large volumes of material in a repetitive manner. AGVs are used in a variety of applications. They're often used for transporting raw materials such as metal, plastic, rubber or paper.
Efficient, cost-effective movement of materials is an important, and common element in improving operations in many manufacturing plants and warehouses. Because automatic guided vehicles can deliver efficient, cost-effective movement of materials, they can be applied to various industries in standard or custom designs to best suit an industry's requirements. Industries currently utilising AGVs include:
- Food & Beverage Manufacturing
- Packaging Materials
- Paper and print
