Monroe, NC, October 16, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The October 13th issue of No Risk Automation, a monthly e-news publication, discussed automated guided vehicle (AGV) maintenance costs. Many times the system slowly begins to perform at lower and lower system efficiency. When it gets to a point where production deficiency is visible and causing pain, the reduction from new high performance automation tools is shocking and frequently causes a great deal of acrimony.
This month’s newsletter also explored the real winner for automation is manufacturing, due to the sheer number of movements of product and the ease with which transportation can occur. Generally most products in manufacturing are transported on pallets or in bins. The results are achieving economies of scale in transport and lowering the overall per item cost of transport using a piece of equipment like an AGV.
