Seegrid Tow Tractor an Effective Transport Solution to Support Lean Manufacturing


Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/02/2016 -- Seegrid vision guided vehicle (VGV) GT10 tow tractor used with trailers, trains, carts, or dollies is an effective transport solution to support lean manufacturing, improving internal material flow for loads up to 10,000 lbs. The GT10 eliminates waste in labor resources typically used for non-value added transport applications such as parts-to-line, end-of-line, and kitting. Designed for easy operation and flexibility, Seegrid's vision guided tow tractor utilizes RideThruThenWork™ deployment with no infrastructure, facility modifications, or engineering resources required. The flexible automated tow tractor solution transports product in manufacturing and distribution facilities without wires, lasers, tape, or magnets. Seegrid's Vision™ technology provides operators complete vehicle control to quickly modify or add routes without engineering support. Attach the load to the GT10 tow tractor, type in the route on the keypad, and the VGV is ready to transport.

Designed as a lean solution for optimizing material flow and throughput, the VGV tow tractor increases profitability, improves operational efficiency, reduces inventory on the floor, cuts labor and operating costs, improves worker and facility safety, and reduces product, facility, and equipment damage. Integration with current software systems, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) or Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), maximizes the use of VGVs in a facility, improving operational efficiency.

With safety a priority in all Seegrid products, the GT10 tow tractor meets U.S. safety related standards when used as directed by properly trained personnel. The GT10 operates in both automatic and manual mode.
