Chalon Sur Saone (Cedex, FRANCIA)
Supply of a fleet of 5 AGVs of the LIFTER series to a French company belonging to a large group operating in the glassworks sector, which deals with glass and its processing (melting and production of bottles and jars). The worldwide group has a turnover of more than 2.6 billion euros and more than 50 locations worldwide, with annual production of more than 16 billion bottles and jars. With this new delivery, six laser-guided AGVs, built in the early 2000s by PROXAUT itself, have been permanently retired. The transport capacity of these machines allows them to carry up to a maximum weight of 2,500 kg (corresponding to approximately 5,500 lbs), reaching a maximum mast lift stroke with the forks of 5,000 mm. In order to enhance the vehicles' efficiency, it was decided to equip them with 4 forks to allow the handling of 2 pallets at a time. In this specific case, the pallets are picked up from the end of the line and then transported to the ground warehouse. These vehicles can be defined as mixed guidance, as they are equipped with both laser and wire guidance systems. The synergy between these systems allows the vehicle to move in complete safety, to operate in small spaces and to speed up movements within the ground warehouse.
The new supply will definitively retire as many as 6 AGVs built in the early 2000s.
