Seegrid Featured in Trilogiq USA Blog Authored by Tim Floyd
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/19/2013 -- Seegrid the maker of robotic industrial trucks also known as flexible vision-guided automated guided vehicles (AGVs), was referenced in the blog of Trilogiq USA. Tim Floyd, National Sales Director for Trilogiq USA looked at Seegrid’s feature article in Automotive Industries for another perspective on automotive automation. Floyd noted, “The article is a great, quick, and necessary read if you have any hand in the material handling process - no matter which industry you're in!”
The feature article entitled, “Robots Improving Materials Handling Efficiencies While Reducing Costs,” authored by James Hilton discusses how robots have taken over most production lines and are moving onto the floor as the automotive industry adopts creative solutions to challenging situations.
Hilton, reported, “An industry already operating under onerous regulatory compliance requirements and tight supply chain margins can ill afford to lose the productivity of a machine through the absence of a worker. Machines – particularly those operated by lower-level workers – can be found standing idle in plants around the world on any given day as the benchmark absenteeism rate for the Automotive Industry is 1.77% as calculated by Incident Days / Exposed Days.”
Floyd authored, “8 Low Cost Automation Concepts used by the Automotive Industry,” on the company’s website. Floyd explored the reasons why the automotive manufacturing industry is looking to automate its material handling processes.
