The unmanned GT10 Tow Tractor automates the movement of flatbed cars, trains or carts with vision-guided robotic technology by Seegrid. Users attach the load to the GT10, type in the route on the keypad and the Robotic Industrial Truck travels without wires, tapes, or lasers. From parts-to-line to end-of-line product delivery or inventory pallet moves, the GT10 reduces the cost per move. Extending workforce productivity, improving safety and lowering operating costs are achieved while providing operations personnel tractor and route control.
- Reduce long, inefficient manned travel
- Integrate safely with workers and equipment, reducing employee injuries and product and facility damage
- Set up in hours, not weeks or months
- Optimize shift productivity: less idle time
- Easy to operate; new routes are trained quickly and efficiently
- Lower labor costs while increasing operational productivity
- Flexibility allows management to control robotic fleets
- Reduce dependence on seasonal staffing and temporary workers
