Roll Handling

JBT Corporation is a leader in supplying automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) for roll handling.

Roll Handling AGVs

Applications have included paper mills, converters, printers, steel producers, and plastics manufacturers. Rolls can be carried from the bilge, core, clamped and stored in racks, on the floor, in stands,directly loaded into presses or stacked in the warehouse. 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 workers 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.
