Raw Material Handling

Timely, reliable delivery of raw materials is a necessity for any manufacturing operation.

Raw Material Handling

Whether it’s steel, plastic, rubber or another material, JBT Corporation automatic guided vehicle systems will provide constant, just-in-time flow of raw materials to keep your production machines operating at maximum capacity.

Requests for delivery of raw materials can be automatically scheduled via an interface with production control software or manually by production machine operators. Benefits of using an AGV System include:

...Improved Safety with AGVs that move in a controlled and predictable manner with safety sensors for obstacle detection.

...Reduced Labor Costs by eliminating simple jobs related to material movement, and reassigning those employees to areas where they can add more value to the company’s products. 

...Reduced Product Damage with gentle handling of loads.

...Improved Material Tracking is easy with computer controlled vehicles which communicate with plant controls.

...No Plant Modifications/Bulky Conveyors Needed – which represent a permanent obstacle and are inflexible for future plant modification.
