Cambridge, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/08/2017 -- Vecna Robotics (https://robotics.vecna.com/) is the first materials handling company to offer AGV (automated guided vehicles) solutions with AGC (automated guided carts) pricing. AGCs are popular for applications where lighter loads and flexibility are required, however Vecna's solutions allow engineers to choose from tuggers that pull a string of carts or trailers in a train to unit load carriers that move subassemblies and work-in-process from one assembly station to another.
The capital expense of AGVs has simply been too expensive for most manufacturing distribution center operations. Vecna Robotics provides a leasing option including both materials handling equipment and revolutionary disruptive IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) monitoring. The leasing program ensures a rapid ROI and far less than the cost of employing and insuring a fork truck driver.
According to John Hayes, SDCE Pros to Know thought-leader and Vice President for Vecna Robotics, "Companies are investing in AGVs to improve plant-floor efficiency and reduce operating costs. As the flexible technology is now more affordable and more easily used on assembly lines, manufacturers and single location distribution centers are deploying driverless carts, robotic parts bins, and autonomous tuggers." Companies considering AGCs must now seriously evaluate Vecna Robotics as a cost effective AGV solution. For additional information contact John Hayes at 704-905-1571.
