Overview

Protecting automated guided forklift vehicles - efficient and future-proof

Safe AGV Forklift is the efficient safety solution for automated guided vehicles (AGVs) with lifting forks. Installation on automated lifting fork vehicles with a drive wheel is easy. The speed and direction-independent protective field switching of the safety laser scanner prevents stops and is gentle on wear and tear parts. Previous solutions prevent automated loading and unloading compliant with standards because the protective field of the laser scanner was violated by the lifting fork. Thanks to the use of the safety encoders, the vehicle can continue to move with the lifting fork lowered at a safely reduced speed. This increases productivity and enables fully-automated and safe operation of AGVs with lifting forks.
