Safety as standard
While efficiency was a key driver behind the move to automation, safety was non-negotiable for Toyota.
Kitted out with cutting-edge safety systems, including low and high-level scanners and interlinking emergency stop systems that enable operators to stop the system from anywhere, the AGV300 TOW guarantees safety.
“The AGV itself has got emergency stops on and it also connects to our dolly train, which has emergency stops. So, the device can be stopped from anywhere along the train.” Kevin Jones, Principle Engineer, Assembly Manufacturing
With responsive navigation and safety technology, the AGV300 TOW seamlessly interacts with other traffic, such as shunters and forklifts and safely navigates through highly pedestrianised areas. Navigating its busy route, the AGV runs for 16 hours a day and covers around 5,000 miles per year, delivering resin back doors throughout the production process.
