Murata Machinery USA Inc. recently introduced its new Premex SLX Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) to the North American market.
The Premex SLX is designed to handle 40 inch-by-48 inch pallets with a load capacity of 2,200 pounds (1,000 kg) and has a traveling speed of 90 meters per minute. This unmanned forklift is compatible with both mobile racks and pallet racks and has a lifting height of 14 feet (4.2 meters).
The AGV uses SLAM (localization & mapping) technology, which eliminates the need for guide path, reflecting plates, or laser guidance. It also possesses a three-wheel drive system, which allows the vehicle to turn in its own footprint.
The vehicle can work in up to -13F degrees (-25C degrees).
