Capable of maneuvering and towing loads throughout a production space, a series of low-cost automatic guided vehicle systems can be controlled with traffic control navigation software. The vehicles come in capacities ranging from 500 pounds to 4,000 pounds, making them ideal for handling smaller loads and increased volumes without additional staff. Features include multiple path programming, a retractable towing pin, remote communication, and programmable optical sensors for safe operation near pedestrians and in confined spaces. The AGVs follow a self-adhesive magnetic tape for simple setup with no floor modifications. Toyota Material Handling, 800-226-0009, http://www.toyotaforklift.com.
