Palomat AGV exchanges pallet data with driverless forklifts
The Danish manufacturer of pallet magazines has expanded its standard range with a new model, the Palomat AGV.
Palomat has introduced an automated guided vehicle (AGV) pallet magazine that stacks and de-stacks empty pallets individually at floor level. It is always ready to either deliver (de-stack) a pallet or retrieve (stack) a pallet from the driverless forklift truck at a uniform location at floor level. The AGV was designed to ensure uniform docking and optimal working conditions for driverless forklift trucks.
The Palomat AGV is delivered with an interface for external equipment, which makes it possible to exchange signals between the vehicle and driverless forklift trucks. The two can communicate independently and maintain a constant and fully automatic flow of pallets to and from the production line.
"Driverless forklift trucks and industry 4.0 have made their entry into the worldwide industry. With Palomat AGV, companies that make use of driverless forklift trucks, or that are considering investing in them, can further streamline the internal logistics by also achieving fully-automatic pallet handling. The Palomat [AGV] and the driverless forklift truck can handle this themselves. The Palomat AGV is delivered with an interface and a standard program, which makes it easy to install and connect to external equipment," explained Area Manager, Majbritt Svane, in a statement.
The Palomat AGV can be included as a natural part of a production line or a store or packaging department. In conjunction with driverless forklift trucks, it streamlines the flow of pallets and increases productivity, the company says.
