Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/20/2014 -- Seegrid, the leading manufacturer of flexible AGVs, also known as robotic industrial trucks, successfully launched its newest product at MODEX 2014 in Atlanta, GA. The revolutionary flexible GWS35 walkie stacker automatically picks, drops, stacks, and puts away loads up to 72 inches at a maximum load capacity of 3,500 pounds. The GWS35 is equipped with Seegrid’s patented vision-guided autonomous navigation system and automatically transports palletized loads through manufacturing and distribution environments.
The vehicle offers fast and effective deployment within hours instead of weeks, has the ability to change routes quickly and easily, operates safely with workers and equipment, and provides the most operational flexibility for the automation of internal material flow in distribution and manufacturing facilities. The GWS35 rapidly reduces labor and operating costs while creating a lean, productive, and efficient operation.
David Heilman, Seegrid President, noted, “With the flexible GWS35 walkie stacker, we have expanded our traditional horizontal transportation line by adding a vehicle that allows for nearly all traditional AGV applications to be both simple and affordable. The flexible GWS35 addresses the market needs of an automated guided vehicle solution at a fraction of the cost.”
