April 01, 2010

Using a patented roller fork mechanism, the pallet-free automatic guided vehicle eliminates the need for pallets within a facility. The vehicle handles loads on slip sheets and offers stacking and push back rack capability. It may also be used for pallet handling. The automated system reduces labor costs, product damage and operational costs. HK Systems, 262-860-6715, http://www.hksystems.com.
