Vision Guided Tow Tractor
So advanced, it’s simple. The vision guided vehicle (VGV) GT45 tow tractor used with trailers, trains, carts, or dollies is an effective transport solution to support lean manufacturing, improving internal material flow for loads up to 4,500 kg.
The GT45 eliminates waste in labor resources typically used for non-value added transport applications such as parts-to-line, end-of-line, and kitting. Designed for easy operation and flexibility, Seegrid’s vision guided tow tractor utilizes RideThruThenWork™ deployment with no infrastructure, facility modifications, or engineering resources required.
The most simple, affordable, flexible automated tow tractor solution for moving product in manufacturing, as well as warehousing and distribution facilities, the VGV travels without wires, lasers, tape, or magnets. Seegrid’s Vision technology provides operators complete vehicle control to quickly modify or add routes without engineering support.
Attach the load to the GT45 tow tractor, type in the route on the keypad, and the VGV is ready to transport. Designed as a lean solution for optimizing material flow and throughput, the VGV tow tractor increases profitability, improves operational efficiency, reduces inventory on the floor to improve just-in-time delivery, reduces labor and operating costs, improves worker and facility safety, and reduces product, facility, and equipment damage.
The GT45 tow tractor can be deployed as a stand-alone or scalable automation solution. Integration with current software systems, such as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) or Warehouse Management Systems (WMS), maximizes the use of VGVs in a facility, improving operational efficiency.
With safety a priority in all Seegrid products, the GT45 tow tractor meets all relevant ISO safety standards and norms when used as directed by properly trained personnel. The GT45 operates in both automatic and manual mode.
