Newspaper Publisher Automates Paper Roll Transportation
The automatic guided vehicle system (AGVS) for a major newspaper publisher’s reel room facility handles transportation of paper rolls between roll preparation, roll storage and the presses. The system consists of 19 laser guided, fork-style AGVs. The AGVs receive jobs generated by the host system. Jobs are then passed to the AGV control system that monitors material movement and assigns orders to the AGVs. These vehicles are equipped with a touch screen graphical display unit, which provides the customer with a total system overview at a glance.
