ASTI Solution
At this frozen baking product manufacturing plant, it was decided that a system of automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) would be installed for the transportation of the palletised product to the baling station. Given that the product is unstable, the machine is equipped with a piston that prevents the load from moving during transportation. During movement, the vehicles pass through a door that opens and closes automatically to avoid unnecessary stoppages in the system. All movements between the pallet and baling areas are undertaken automatically thanks to the use of AGVs. The host is charged with communicating with the pallet loader to know when it is necessary to collect a load and consequently assign said order to the most appropriate AGV to maintain rates of maximum productivity. Additionally, and thanks to the safety systems our AGVs are equipped with, accidents are avoided, safeguarding the physical integrity of the people who work with them, the facilities, and the material transported.
