Custom Automatic Guided Vehicles
Some material handling challenges are so unique that they require a truly custom solution. JBT Corporation provides custom designed automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) to fully meet these unique challenges.
To effectively design Custom AGVs, JBT Corporation first takes time to talk with the customer to research and thoroughly understand all of the goals and requirements of the project. This research often includes multiple site visits and borrowing of samples of the product to be handled so that all dimensions can be verified and interfaces tested.
Although custom automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) usually contain one-of-a-kind features, they are efficiently designed using a proven set of modules that have been used before in successful AGV projects. JBT Corporation has the broadest offering of standard AGV types available and this gives us the framework to make modifications and introduce unique vehicles while minimizing delivery time and cost. Our experience allows us to use proven methodology for efficient productivity that has proven successful in the most demanding environments and limits the risk associated with the unique aspects of the project.
A similar design philosophy is taken with the AGV software. It is written in standard, configurable modules that can be customized when needed for unique applications. JBT Corporation owns all the core navigation, vehicle, and host software technology which allows a quicker response than AGV suppliers who simply purchase this technology from third parties.
