Dematic Fork AGV:

Automated Guided Straddle-Forklift

Stable transport of heavy loads

Transporting Euro pallets and other heavy loads is child's play with the driverless Dematic Fork-AGVs with side wheel arms.

Automated Straddle Fork AGVs from Dematic take your intralogistics to a new level. Thanks to their design, the straddle fork version guarantees reliably stable handling - even at high lift heights. These industrial trucks can safely transport even heavy or tall loads.

Advantages of the narrow automated forklift trucks

  • Transport of particularly heavy loads (up to 1,200 kg) thanks to lateral wheel arms
  • Flexible floor-to-floor transport possible
  • Stable handling even at greater lifting heights (up to 3,300 mm)
  • High manoeuvrability thanks to no counterweight and compact design
  • Greater personal safety compared to manned forklift trucks
  • Cost savings through automation

Straddle Fork AGVs as part of an automated guided vehicle system can - just like manually controlled forklifts - carry a variety of different load carriers, such as:

  • Euro pallets and box pallets, also closed pallets
  • Mesh containers and intermediate bulk containers (IBCs)
  • Rolls
  • Racks

Optimal design of Driverless Straddle Stackers

The wheel arms are arranged laterally on the driverless straddle stackers and thus additionally stabilise the load transport. With this wheel-assisted design, the load is located inside the wheel base. The forks can be lowered to the ground. Straddle Fork AGVs, unlike counterbalance vehicles, can do without a counterweight.

Straddle Fork models from Dematic

Automated goods transport in your logistics can benefit from two AGV models from Dematic's Straddle Fork series:

  • Dematic FLV2012/S (mono mast) for particularly heavy loads
  • Dematic FLV3310/S (duplex or triplex mast) for greater lifting heights

The FLV2012/S is a driverless forklift truck with wheel arms next to the fork and mono mast. This driverless transport vehicle can carry loads of max. 1,200 kg at a lifting height of up to 2,000 mm. The FLV3310/S, on the other hand, with its duplex or triplex mast, achieves significantly higher lifting heights (up to 3,300 mm) with reduced load capacity.

For detailed information on these AGVmodels, please refer to the FLV2012/S and FLV3310/S data sheet.

Possible applications for Driverless Straddle Forklifts

Driverless forklift trucks with side wheel arms are the ideal solution for automated internal material flow in warehouses, production facilities and distribution centres. Thanks to their flexibility, these automated guided vehicles can be used for a wide range of applications:

  • Buffer storage
  • Transport between WIP and production
  • Transport between goods receipt, production and warehouse
  • Storage applications (block storage and narrow aisle storage)
