Unlike traditional AGVs, the Courier series utilizes Seegrid vision-guided technology, unique to the industry, offering a 360-degree view of the surroundings while providing the ability to map locations, identify obstructions, and control vehicle behaviors. Ideal for handling and transporting products between connected manufacturing and warehouse facilities, the Courier 3030 stacker helps maximize workforce productivity. With a second-level vertical reach capability of up to 72 inches and a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds, the automated stacker is ideal for pickup/drop-off, end-of-aisle, and end-of-line applications, as well as conveyor picking.
