HK Systems Inc. has enhanced its automated guided vehicles and introduced improved guidance techniques. Its automatic guided fork vehicles now feature a variety of capacities and configurations. The new counterbalanced unit has a carrying capacity of up to 3,000 pounds and is suitable for applications requiring flexibility for picking and depositing loads to a variety of elevations and station types, including the floor, conveyor, and stands. The 2,000-pound fork vehicle offers lift capability up to 20 feet. With this lift, loads can be stored in and out of rack structures using conventional rack and existing fork truck aisles.
In addition to its fork vehicles, HK has introduced the low-profile conveyor deck unit load vehicle, enabling customers to transfer loads to elevations of 14 to 30 inches. Providing up to 6,000 pounds of carrying capacity, this unit is suitable for conveyor-toconveyor transfers.
To complement its current Eagle III technology, HK has introduced a new AGV laser guidance technology, providing a navigation system that uses a spinning laser scanner to measure distance and angle to known targets, allowing the vehicle to triangulate its exact position.
