Heavy industries such as aerospace, paper mills, metal manufacturing, smelting & refining, and building material manufacturers produce large and often extremely heavy industrial products. These manufacturers require heavy equipment and machinery and have complex production processes in order to keep up with demand. To meet this challenge heavy-duty automated guided vehicles have become a key factor in the efficient transport of their products.
Heavy-duty AGVs perform tasks involving high payloads, fragile material, and harsh environments. Using AGVs to assist with heavy-duty applications optimizes production methods, reduces product loss, and increases worker safety. Manufacturers use the benefits provided by heavy-duty AGVs to set themselves ahead of the competition.
Scott engineers developed Transbotics Large capacity vehicles as the best solution for tasks involving high payloads. Vehicles come with customization options to meet the constraints of the materials handled. AGVs can also come equipped with lifting tables, roller conveyors, or particular load-handling load-handling devices such as clamps or pliers to accommodate various materials. The customization and flexibility of an AGV make them beneficial in a variety of heavy industrial applications, including:
Steel and aluminium coils must be handled with care since as they are sensitive to damage and distortion. The design and programming of Transbotics heavy-duty AGV carriers are customized with product-specific constraints to transport coils efficiently without damage to the product or packaging. The durability of a heavy-load AGV can handle hot coils with surface temperatures up to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
When a business upgrades its transportation process using AGVs, all areas of production can benefit. Companies report strategic advantages including improved customer experience, a more desirable workplace, and a competitive advantage edge.
