Dematic has developed a freezer-rated narrow aisle reach Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) that has been designed to operate autonomously in chilled and freezer operations.

The AGV can operate permanently in temperatures down to -25°C and intermittently as low as -30°C.

With a lift height that can access five levels of racking in a typical warehouse, a 1100kg load capacity, and a reach mechanism to handle double-deep racking, the AGV is well-suited for automating operations in existing freezer distribution facilities.

“Our new AGVs are an attractive solution for automating existing freezer storage DCs that are manually operated today,” Dematic's local general manager sales – AGV Tony Raggio says.

“Companies can implement freezer-rated AGVs as an automated picking solution with minimal infrastructure changes and related costs.”
