Seegrid Presents Flexible AGV at Material Handling Expo in Michigan on Thursday
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2013 -- Seegrid, maker of flexible robotic automated guided vehicles (AGVs), will present demonstrations of their flexible vision-guided automated guided vehicles tomorrow, Thursday, October 10th at the Second Annual Material Handling Solution Expo. Robotic industrial trucks offer a flexible, cost effective solution for the automated movement of products. Manufacturing facilities and warehouses operating Seegrid robots experience reduced labor costs, increased safety, reduced product damage, and improved productivity and efficiency.
John Hayes, Seegrid’s Vice President of US Sales and Marketing discussed the simplicity of training and operating a Seegrid flexible AGV, “Anyone can train and operate the flexible AGV. Even though flexible AGVs are complex robots, the vision system allows anyone to train and operate the vehicles. Engineers are not needed for installation, updates, or route modifications. Because the vehicles are built from familiar industrial truck platforms, operators recognize the vehicle and adapt quickly to use. On-site maintenance staff is able to perform pm requirements and routine troubleshooting and maintenance. This added benefit keeps costs down and the fleet control in the hands of the facility manager.”
Trilogiq USA, the host of the Expo, based in Livonia, Michigan, develops new methods and applications for manufacturing companies. Years of growth in capabilities, geographic reach, and comprehensive one-stop-shopping solutions have created a wide scope and value proposition for Trilogiq USA’s customers.
