Automation Optimizes Pharmaceutical Production Facility
An automatic guided vehicle system (AGVS) provides for efficient handling of production and packaging materials for a pharmaceutical site’s Work-In-Process (WIP) requirements. There was no downtime or impact to production during installation of the AGVs, which was of major benefit in preventing lost revenue or increased overtime. The AGVS is responsible for transporting material between two inbound conveyors, a 12-aisle/44,000 location Automated Storage / Retrieval System (AS/RS) and two outbound conveyors. Raw material or WIP items are introduced into the system for storage until needed by production or packaging.
