AGVS – Serving to Educate Companies about AGV Systems


Tuesday, August 06, 2019

The Automatic Guided Vehicle Systems (AGVS) Industry Group of MHI provides educational material for end users of AGV systems. AGVS members are committed to safety, innovation and providing the right solution to ensure peak performance.
 
With access to the combined experience of thousands of installed systems from 25 different automatic guided vehicle system companies, AGVS members create resources and provide help to end users of their equipment. 
 
Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have been around since 1953 and have been the catalyst for creating flexible material handling solutions throughout multiple industry segments. AGV system benefits include, but are not limited to:
  • Reducing labor count
  • Creating less product damage
  • Enabling work in multi-shift and 24/7 operations
  • Increasing safety in working environments
  • Reducing operations cost
  • Increasing efficiency
  • Improving accuracy
AGVs have long been the most flexible of automated material handling systems and have quickly become a disruptive force leading the way to Intralogistics 4.0. Our members currently serve clients in the warehouse & distribution, automotive, eCommerce, healthcare, manufacturing, food & beverage, print, and electronics industries. AGV’s operate safely in a collaborative environment, so there is a solution out there that is right for your company. 
 
AGVS as a group does not sell equipment—that’s what our members do. AGVS’s goal is to educate the wider material handling community on the benefits of using AGVs in their supply chain operation as well as providing guidance when looking to start integrating AGV’s into their current warehouse set up. So with that in mind, we’d love to chat and help you find the best way forward for your company. Visit us at Pack Expo Booth US-8414.
