E&K AUTOMATION delivers Automated Guided Vehicles Systems for the automatic transport of linens, food, medical waste, trash, drugs for hospitals, pharmaceutical industries, laboratories, clinics, etc.
Automated Guided Vehicles offer many benefits, such as lower operating costs, reduced transport damage and improvement on delivery times
The AGVs from E&K AUTOMATION have a Super-Flat profile, making an extremely low and sleek vehicle that’s ideally suited to many hospital duties. With its integrated lifting gear, the vehicles deliver hospital trolleys, beds, containers and the like – up to 500 kg. The tried & tested design of the AGV is easy to maintain and delivers riskfree automated transport and handling.
The AGVs drive automatically in and out of service elevators and generally use separate service aisles to bridge various floors. If needed, they can use passenger lifts as well using a reservation mechanism. On-board safety sensors allow the vehicles to stop when persons or obstacles on the path are detected – avoiding personal injury and damage to payload, surrounding items or infrastructure. Automatic guided vehicles are able to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, replacing multiple shifts at once.
