Mike Kotzian, Managing Director of Kivnon USA discussed the long delivery lead time for many AGV installations, often more than a year of purchase. He insisted delivery in 2022 is critical. Read more in the recent issue of Robotics & Automation News here.
According to Kotzian, “Too much emphasis has been placed on features, advantages, and benefits; too little attention has been paid to delivery dates. AGV vendors must promise a delivery date with a guarantee not to exceed 180 days from purchase order to delivery. Failing to provide that commitment is unacceptable.”
Kotzian added, “Some 2022 AGV (automated guided vehicle) and AMR (automated mobile robot) buyers are seriously considering purchasing magnetic propulsion solutions because they are tested, established, and have worked well for more than two decades.”
The FlexTag app is the first-of-its-kind solution to create, configure, and modify magnetic navigation circuits. This innovation is a critical accessory in the AGV/AMR space along with FlexMap, management software that allows users to create, configure, and map navigation circuits. Similarly, the Smartpad Application is designed to control and move automated guided vehicles (AGVs/AMRs) via a Bluetooth connection.
Kivnon will be exhibiting at MODEX 2022 in Atlanta from March 28 – 31 at Booth #C5488.
