Material Handling and Logistics Profiles Seegrid GC10
Material Handling and Logistics Profiles Seegrid GC10, a profile of Seegrid's Robotic Products
The unmanned GT10 Tow Tractor automates the movement of flatbed cars, trains or carts with vision-guided robotic technology by Seegrid. Users attach the load to the GT10, type in the route on the keypad and the robotic industrial truck travels without wires, tapes, or lasers. From parts-to-line to end-of-line product delivery or inventory pallet moves, the GT10 can reduce the cost per move. It can also extend workforce productivity, improve safety and lower operating costs while providing operations personnel with tractor and route control.
The lineage of Material Handling & Logistics goes back to 1946, when Flow magazine first started covering supply chain issues. As the magazine evolved into Material Handling Engineering during the ‘50s through the ‘90s, then Material Handling Management during the first decade of this millennium, and now Material Handling & Logistics, is the leading source of information for corporate managers who oversee the handling, storage and movement of raw materials, in-process goods and finished product throughout the supply chain. Seegrid’s director of sales and marketing David Noble said the market is demanding robotic trucks and autonomous vehicles, and the unmanned or unmanned GC10 vehicle responds to that demand with flexibility and an affordable price.
Robotic trucks are set up in hours rather than weeks or months, unlike AGVs (which require months of planning for implementation and installation.) The additional extensive IT Integration needed for AGVs often compromises the quality and compliance among the workforce. With no IT integration required and not facility modification required, robotic industrial trucks are often the better choice.
Altered plant floors require new safety and quality documentation, process and procedure controls, and are a hidden cost rarely mentioned by AGV suppliers. Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Seegrid Corp. (www.seegrid.com) brings robotic vision-guided technology to the material handling industry. Seegrid offers solutions that optimize workflow processes by increasing productivity and reducing costs, creating economic and operational advantages.
Seegrid technology can transform industrial vehicles into unmanned, automated pallet trucks and tow tractors that operate without a need for wire, tape, laser or other automated guided vehicle guidance systems.
