NA 2010, slated for April 26-29, will showcase more than 500 exhibits and include a comprehensive educational conference. The event, held at the I-X Center in Cleveland, will offer an array of products to help improve productivity at your company.

Developed for automating pallet movement in warehouses, the counterbalanced automatic guided vehicle can pick up loads from the floor and block stack or interface with conveyors, stands and racking (standard, pushback, flow through and drive-in). The warehousing AGV is laser guided and includes an optional vision system that helps guide the vehicle as it approaches the pallet, ensuring the forks are properly aligned with the fork pockets. The vehicle has a maximum capacity of 5,000 pounds and can be configured to handle single or double pallets.
