Esatroll – Paquito Forklift

Integrator: Esatroll
End customer: Industrial Bakery, Italy
Installation date: August 2009

 

Objective

Transportation of pallets from palletizer to stock buffer.

Challenges

  • Very narrow racks to be driven in
  • 250 pick and place positions
  • One vehicle to cover 7500 sqm

So why ANT?

  • Localization based on laser triangulation was impossible in the narrow racks. ANT®’s environment-based localization allowed traveling through the long and narrow racks with high precision.
  • Installing inductive lines or magnets on the 200 x 50 m surface area to be covered by a single vehicle was not cost efficient. ANT® requiring no additional infrastructure allowed the realization of the project within a tight budget.
