Robotic Autonomous Guided Vehicles Ideal for the Food Sector According to Rob Sullivan CEO at AutoGuide Mobile Robots

Rob Sullivan, President and CEO of AutoGuide Mobile Robots discussed why food manufacturing and logistics need to automate using robotic autonomous guided vehicles in the recent issue of Food Logistics magazine. New and expanding food manufacturing plants combined with significant labor shortages are driving the need for efficient automation solutions.

Robots shipped to North American companies in record numbers last year, with more non-automotive companies installing robots than ever before, according to statistics from the Robotic Industries Association (RIA). At least 35,880 units were shipped in 2018, a 7 percent increase over 2017, with 16,702 shipments to non-automotive companies, up 41 percent.

With reconfigurable multi-purpose equipment, the high cost and audit-ready rigor of sanitation and maintenance requirements would be immediately reduced. If this reconfigurable equipment could operate autonomously, the high costs of labor, certification and training would be reduced or eliminated.

By combining and redesigning many of the traditional material handling systems into a common base series of modular motor, sensor, steering, safety, and communication features, the Max N10 Mobile Robot Platform is the first of its kind “Configurable Modular Robotic Autonomous Guided Vehicle.” Made in the USA, the Max N10 has a series of modular attachments that allow the user to obtain the most economical capital efficiencies without compromising the environment safety and requirements in the food manufacturing plant.
