Automation Steers Safe Delivery of Automotive Components
A large automotive assembly plant reduced fork truck traffic while still maintaining a line speed of 81 completed automobile jobs per hour by installing a fleet of 45 automatic guided vehicles (AGVs). The vehicles transport racks of engines, shocks, struts safely from receiving dock conveyors. The guided vehicle system was so flexible it easily integrated with existing plant equipment allowing for the complete automated movement of components from the time material is received until it is delivered to the assembly lines. Through the use of the AGVs, the assembly plant was able to improve production efficiency and safety while reducing operating costs.
