How AGV Can Improve Your Workflow
Are you considering integrating automated guided vehicles (AGVs) into your operation? They offer numerous advantages, including quality, precision, consistency, safety, and increased output. And while some may worry that machines will take jobs away from people, the truth is that using an AGV in your workplace allows humans to focus on tasks that effectively utilize their skills, judgement, and dexterity.
Are you considering integrating automated guided vehicles (AGVs) into your operation? They offer numerous advantages, including quality, precision, consistency, safety, and increased output. And while some may worry that machines will take jobs away from people, the truth is that using an AGV in your workplace allows humans to focus on tasks that effectively utilize their skills, judgement, and dexterity. The boring, repetitive tasks performed by the AGV give human workers the freedom to do more interesting work.
So, what can an AGV do for your business? You’ll find that as the technology behind them continues to evolve, they’ll grow in value and do things you never thought possible. Consider that the first AGV incorporated into the workplace in the 1970s was tasked with carrying mail throughout the Sears Tower in Chicago. Today, AGVs have a wide range of capabilities and uses. The engineers behind them continue to work to make them easier to use, able to perform complex tasks more effectively, and more cost-effective. Modern AGV's can be programmed with more than one navigational system and graphic interface. They can navigate complex floor plans with no problem, their programming is easy to view and change, and they can easily work around traffic in the warehouse. This makes them safer than ever before.
AGV forklifts are useful for many different industries. They can be used by just about any size company because it's easy to slowly integrate automated guided vehicles into your operation. They’re accessible for smaller businesses as well as large corporations. They come in a variety of price points, and you can add them one at a time if you like, eventually working up to a fully integrated system. It's even possible to adapt existing equipment into an AGV system, which makes for less expense and a reduced learning curve.
One hurdle business owners must overcome in the implementation of automated guided vehicles is a cultural perception. It can be unnerving to see driverless vehicles in the workplace, and a common misconception is that these robots are replacing humans. If you're looking to incorporate automation into your business, it's important to have a conversation encouraging employees to look at the machines as partners that allow the entire operation to function more effectively.
