Focus On AGVs: Robotic pallet truck handles 8,000 pounds

Autonomous Guided Vehicles

The vision-guided GP8 robotic pallet truck frees skilled employees by performing non-value-added work by automating pallet transport. After an operator positions the vehicle's 96-inch long forks under the pallet, the industrial mobile robot transports pallets to an assigned location, automatically positions them, and returns to the original starting point—or other pre-assigned location—for more work. The vehicle handles up to 8,000 pounds and stores 25 miles of learned routes. Powered by a 24-volt DC battery, the vehicle travels at a maximum speed of 3.5 miles per hour.
