Seegrid (http://www.seegrid.com/europe-products) introduced two European products on their new Europe Products website. The website includes the Guided by Seegrid P50 C Tow Tractor and the GT45 Tow Tractor. The Guided by Seegrid patented vision technology provides simple, affordable, flexible automation for the movement of flatbed cars, trains, or carts. No facility modifications or design changes required as the Guided by Seegrid P50 C tow tractor uses vision-guidance in the existing infrastructure to navigate throughout a facility--no wires, laser targets, tapes or magnets needed for navigation. This vehicle is only available in Europe.
The GT45 Tow Tractor can also automate the movement of flatbed cars, trains, or carts using Seegrid’s patented vision-guided technology. Simply attach the load to the GT45, type in the route on the keypad, and the flexible AGV is ready for transport. Both vehicles are only available in Europe.
Peter Bak, European Representative for Seegrid, explained that Seegrid is poised for dramatic growth among manufacturers and distributors in Europe during 2014. Bak reported, “The growing need for intelligent – simple and flexible – Material Handling automation that can present a fast return on investment highlights Seegrid as the best choice for European companies in 2014.” Seegrid products and Bak will be at CeMAT May 19-23, 2014.
CeMAT 2014 will boast a new look with five clearly defined Technology Zones, together with new user focus topics and special events, will give visitors a concentrated overview and an opportunity to showcase products and services under prioritized headings. Offering an extensive range of services to help exhibitors plan display and generate new business leads on the basis of presentation in Hannover, CeMAT will be building on its role as a key driver of the intralogistics industry in 2014.
Guided by Seegrid flexible AGVs utilize vision-guided technology for navigation, with no changes to the infrastructure. The innovative technology allows vehicles to be trained and deployed in a warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing facility quickly and efficiently, eliminating non-value-added repetitive tasks. The vision system provides operators complete route flexibility, as the AGV routing can be re-programmed in a matter of minutes supporting the up-to-date needs of every facility.
Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Seegrid (www.seegrid.com), the prognosis for continued growth for Seegrid is exceptional, and whether developing robotic vision-guided solutions for manufacturing, warehousing or distribution centers, Seegrid is part of the reform for the materials handling industry for Europe.
