Fostoria (Ohio, USA)
Supply of 2 AGVs of the LOADER series inertial guided, sold to an American company belonging to a big group. The company, which employs more than 2000 people and has a turnover of more than 590 million UDS, has been working in the steel sector for many years, with processes such as casting, rolling and extrusion of metals. The two vehicles supplied, each with a maximum transport capacity of 15,000 kg (corresponding to approximately 33,000 lbs), have been tested to transport a series of extruded steel coils for several production lines, placed on top of a table specially designed by Proxaut for the customer. Specifically, this type of vehicles has been equipped with a lift, which allows the table to be picked up, previously loaded with the reels, and then taken to the pre-established areas. In order to meet the customer's need to work continuously for 24 hours a day, the vehicles were equipped with lithium batteries capable of ensuring greater performance than the traditional lead-acid batteries. It was possible to achieve this result, also thanks to the rapid recharging system, which allows the vehicles to be recharged in less time than in the past.
Transport capacity: reels of metal cables with a maximum capacity of 15,000 kg (approx. 33,000 pounds).
