Combilift is always thrilled to bring the newest lifting solutions! This time, they bring the world’s first autonomous sideloader with the option to operate manually. Isn’t it great?
This time, Combilift is delighted to share the latest news of the launch of the new Combi-AGT, the world’s first autonomous side loader with the option to operate manually. The all-new Combi-AGT recently premiered at the annual Fabtech trade show.
Combi-AGT: What it offers?
Safely and reliably deliver long loads in narrow aisle around the clock with the new Combi-AGT Autonomous Guided Forklift Truck. Their autonomous truck solutions combine sophisticated, innovative technology with our 25 years of warehouse optimisation experience to provide the highest levels of productivity and safety available. The Combi-AGT can operate autonomously in guided aisles and free-roaming and also with manual driving option.
A brief on COMBI-AGT
The Combi-AGT is a 4-wheel electric stand-on sideloader, which harnesses the very latest smart technology to meet customer demands for driverless sideloader capability with a capacity of 5,000kg/11,000lbs.
This enhanced adaptive safety system enables the size of the obstacle detection fields to increase or decrease as per the steer angle and speed of the truck.
The natural feature navigation system is superior to traditional methods of truck navigation based on wire guidance or artificial landmarks such as reflectors. Instead, it uses the naturally occurring features in a warehouse – walls, racking and columns for example, avoiding the need to add to or change the warehouse infrastructure.
The patent pending load dimension detection system operates by performing a laser scan of the load to check that its length matches the task sent to the machine. Similarly, when unloading, it checks that the rack in front has sufficient free space to accept the load.
“We have deliberately taken our time incorporating an autonomous product into our portfolio. As with any new launch we have carried out extensive field tests to make sure it is 100% fit for purpose and exactly what our customers want. The Combi-AGT signals a new milestone in product development with further expansion of our autonomous range.”
Anti-Collision Safety System
The laser-based sensors, fitted at various positions on the chassis, comprise of an anti-collision safety system, as required by the American National Standards Institute. If the machine senses an obstacle or pedestrian that has entered its path, it automatically slows down and will, if necessary, stop in cases of emergency, it will then continue to drive automatically, when the obstacle has cleared its safety sensor area.
COMBI-AGT is extremely versatile in adopting sophisticated innovative technology.
