AGV – Automated guided carts

CAPACITY: 0 – 1000 TONS

Morello designs and manufactures customized AGV carts or automated guided carts according to specific needs in a complete range of industrial sectors. Design and manufacturing of high-capacity AGV carts from 2 up to over 1,000 tons is one of Morello key expertise in automated material handling for heavy industries.

An AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) is a vehicle on wheels used for completely autonomous transportation systems in mostly industrial sector dealing with heavy materials: modern AGV in material handling is used without operator control or physical guidance, such as rails. Morello solutions with heavy-duty AGVs enhance high-load onsite transportation requiring tailor-made, flexible and effective solutions.

ADVANTAGES OF AGV CARTS

  • Reduction of labor costs
  • Increased safety
  • Increased accuracy and productivity
  • Reduction of damage to products and work environment
  • Possibility of working in dangerous or hostile environments for humans (e.g. explosive environments)
