AGVS FOR THE BIG CHILL

Dematic has developed a freezer-rated narrow-aisle reach AGV that can operate autonomously in chilled and freezer environments. The AGV can operate permanently in temperatures down to -25°C and intermittently as low as -30°C.

The vehicle’s specifications are ideally suited to current-day distribution facilities, with a lift height that can access five levels of racking, a 1100kg load capacity, and a reach mechanism for double-deep racking.

“Our new AGVs are an attractive solution for automating existing freezer storage distribution centres that are manually operated today,” says Tony Raggio, General Manager Sales – AGV, Dematic Australia and New Zealand. “Companies can implement freezer-rated AGVs as an automated picking solution with minimal infrastructure changes and related costs.”

Freezer environments are notoriously difficult for distribution staff, who typically require 10 to 20 minutes out of the freezer during every hour worked. The AGV, on the other hand, can operate 24/7, picking and transporting product in the frozen environment to the point of distribution

“Finding people to work in chilled and freezer environments is challenging,” adds Raggio. “Our customers can use these AGVs in the frozen areas of their distribution facilities to create a fully automated ‘lights out’ automation solution.”
