Personal safety is extremely important when we manufacture AGVs. All our products must have all the safety regulations as a minimum.
All AGVs are equipped with an emergency stop button. Laser scanners detect if a person comes too close to the vehicle, and if so it stops. On the sides and on the back of the AGV there are also electro-mechanical bumpers. These help switch off the AGV if something comes too close.
Today manual driven forklifts are responsible for almost 40% of the reported accidents within manufacturing industries. In addition, damage to transported goods has a big impact of the costs internally. Costs also arise for repair of damages as a result of collisions done by manually driven trucks. An AGV system can help you reduce these costs substantially as well as improve workplace safety.
