Concept & Review

& Business Case

2014

Imagine your DC with AGVPick


AGVPick in DISTRIBUTION CENTER

  • Applying Proven Automation technology (AGVs) to traditionally manual case order selection process

  • Why?

    • To remove non-productive tasks from process

    • To increase productivity

    • To improve working conditions

Goals: affordable, rugged, reliable, safe, user friendly

AGVPickSOLUTION FEATURES

  • Narrow design allowing passing in manual operation

  • Fast re-insert into automatic mode (approx. 1 sec.)

  • Lights and audible signals for communication to users

  • Available in single, double and triple pallet models

  • Voice Insert Command – operator go directly to case

  • “Stop” & “Move”- voice commands

  • (LDP) Light directed picking – increase pick accuracy

  • AGVTransport - Designed for automatic repetitive movement

  • Energy –designed to accept multiple energy sources including: Battery Swap (use existing batteries) Opp.Charging, Fuel Cells

  • Label Printing – on-board portable label printers

  • Auto-Deploy - AGV meets order filler at end of trip

  • Built-in not bolt-on to the pallet truck design

AGVPick ….. affordable, rugged, reliable, safe, user friendly

System FeaturesEmpty Pallet pickup- AGV

  • Automatic Double Pallet Dispensers

    • AGV drives into the dispenser which places empty pallets on the AGV which then drives away

    • Manual replenishment of Dispenser with pallet stacks
