J-tec Industries has introduced an automated material transfer system called Carrymatic. Its smart carts and line transfer stations communicate via Wi-Fi with a vehicle interface module that can be attached to any tugger vehicle. The carts are pulled in a train by a manned tugger vehicle (manual mode) or unmanned AGV (auto mode) through facilities, moving cargo automatically on and off the carts and stations at the line in a "no-touch" mode. Operators never touch materials being delivered. Powered rollers on Carrymatic carts and stations move cargo on and off the train. According to the company, this system eliminates safety risks when using fork trucks at line locations, lowers inventory costs, and improves delivery rates.
