Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/06/2014 -- Seegrid Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Horbal, is taking his proven track record in business and expanding the global footprint of Seegrid’s award-winning technology in its flexible automated guided vehicle (AGV), otherwise known as robotic industrial truck, into Europe this month at LogiMAT 2014.
LogiMAT is the biggest annual intralogistics exhibition in Europe being held between 25 and 27 February 2014. International exhibitors and decision-makers from industry, trade, and the service sectors will be coming together at the new exhibition centre at Stuttgart Airport to find the best products and best practices. The focus will be on innovative products, solutions and systems for procurement, warehouse, production, and distribution logistics. Seegrid will be located at Hall 8, Stand #471.
Seegrid’s announcement of expansion into the European Union comes after extensive review and testing, the flexible vision guided tow tractor is fully compliant with all the requirements for CE marking, the machinery directive, and health and safety regulations for use in industrial applications.
Horbal is clearly excited about the dramatic growth overseas, noting, “This is an exciting time for Seegrid and European manufacturers. The company is actively establishing dealer relationships and recognizes the need to work globally to satisfy the needs of customers. The European market is a prime candidate for our flexible AGVs to address high labor rates, sophistication with robotic technology, and forward thinking initiatives to increase productivity and move goods more efficiently.”
Guided by Seegrid flexible AGVs utilize vision-guided technology for navigation, with no changes to the infrastructure. The innovative technology allows vehicles to be trained and deployed in a warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing facility quickly and efficiently, eliminating non-value-added repetitive tasks. The vision system provides operators complete route flexibility, as the AGV routing can be re-programmed in a matter of minutes supporting the up-to-date needs of every facility.
Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Seegrid (www.seegrid.com), the prognosis for continued growth for Seegrid is exceptional, and whether developing robotic vision-guided solutions for manufacturing, warehousing or distribution centers, Seegrid is part of the reform for the materials handling industry for Europe.
