Automotive Manufacturing Facility Turns to Seegrid Robotic Industrial Trucks
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2012 -- Founded in 2003, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Seegrid Corporation brings robotic vision-guided technology to the material handling industry. YUSA Corporation, an automotive manufacturing facility, partnered with Seegrid to improve the flow of raw material to assembly line, maintain service levels for customer shipments and improve flow from assembly to warehouse. YUSA found deploying Seegrid's vision guided pallet trucks yielded substantial and immediate benefits, including:
- Reduced Labor Cost: Full-time employees were reassigned to value added work activities
- Reduced Maintenance Costs: Employees performed routine maintenance and trouble shooting.
- No Facility Adaptation: The Robotic Industrial Trucks required no change of the facility and were set up in less than one hour.
- Health and Safety: YUSA required less manual labor, controlled travel speeds, and a system driven workflow that promotes consistent safe behavior.
