1,5T Handling of palletized sheets


A paper board mill was searching for a more cost-effective way of handling regular transport orders than their manual handling system could provide. In addition, they wanted a handling system that also allowed personnel and manual trucks to operate safely in the same area.


Several automated guided vehicles were installed to handle palletized sheets between cutters and a conveyor belt that moves them on to packaging, and from there to storage. Equipped with adjustable forks the same AGV can be used for handling various sizes of sheets. For additional safety the AGVs are fitted with a self-adjusting upper load support that holds the sheet stacks in place and prevents them from slipping during braking or cornering.
