Dematic today announced it has made its first delivery of the company’s new range of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) from its factory in Belrose, NSW.
A major Australian beverage company is the first to receive a delivery of the Dematic AGVs. The order includes four-metre double pallet handlers and six-metre double pallet handlers, all with fork spreading capabilities.
The new AGVs allow customers to handle double pallets of product, which will be transported safely and accurately around the clock by driverless AGVs. Benefits include significantly reduced labour costs and on-going damage to equipment and stock, together with improved supply chain reliability and traceability. For businesses which run multiple shifts, the return on investment is rapid.
“We began manufacturing Dematic’s new AGV range in our Sydney facility in June this year,” said Tommy Eklof, Director of AGVs at Dematic. “We are very excited to have shipped our first AGVs from Dematic’s Belrose facility.”
Dematic manufactures a comprehensive range of AGVs including forklifts, unit load, very narrow aisle (VNA) and specialty vehicles to reliably move materials, stock and finished goods through DCs and production environments in a timely, cost-effective, safe and flexible way.
With an installed base of more than 500 AGVs across over 110 sites in Australia, NDC has been the leading manufacturer and supplier of AGVs in Australia for over 25 years. Dematic announced it had acquired NDC Automation Pty Limited on March 21, 2016 adding further to its comprehensive range of integrated logistics and supply chain automation solutions.
