Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2014 -- Seegrid stands by the MODEX theme, Automation for Everyone, and is excited to announce the company is allowing attendees the opportunity to win a fully installed GWS35 walkie stacker, Seegrid’s newest innovative flexible automated guided vehicle (AGV) product. Attendees are encouraged to visit the Seegrid booth to discuss walkie stacker applications for their facility with a Seegrid materials handling expert.
Seegrid is exhibiting at the largest expo, MODEX, for the manufacturing and supply chain industries. Attendees visiting Seegrid booth #7317 will learn about the latest material handling trends and flexible automated guided vehicle technologies available.
Buyers in the market have requested that Seegrid develop a fully automated point-to-point flexible AGV which remains aligned with the Seegrid philosophy of simple, affordable, flexible automation. In response, Seegrid’s flexible GWS35 walkie stacker delivers a vehicle capable of automatically handling picks, drops, stacks, and puts away loads up to 72 inches at a maximum load capacity of 3,500 pounds.
The walkie stacker can be used for automatic lane building or deep lane storage at dock and staging locations. The GWS35 is state of the art yet simple to use, as it does not require any additional infrastructure, costly expansion or redesign into a facility, or a specialized team of engineers to install, support, or operate the flexible vision-guided GWS35. 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.
