With over 25 years of engineering experience, MasterMover leads the way when it comes to utilising technology on electric tow tugs to drive safety and operational efficiency.
Our technology options are designed to help operators drive maximum ROI from their investment in electric tow tugs.
Utilising Remote Control options offers a range of benefits, with options for simple forwards/backwards movement or full multi-directional capability.
When utilising Remote Control, operators can take up the ideal vantage point when moving a load, controlling speed and direction of travel through simple controls. The electric tow tug will come to a stop if the controls are disengaged, or the emergency stop button (on the control unit or the machine) is engaged.
This technology ensures an electric tow tug follows a line on the floor, delivering highly accurate repeated movement between points. This is especially useful when moving loads through tight spaces, or when accurate movement is required.
Line Following capability is available via two options.
Remote Control: the operator controls the speed of the machine, but the direction is dictated by the line on the floor.
AGV: movement of the electric tow tug is automated, with the AGV following the line on the floor. Scanners monitor for hazards and risks, bringing the electric tow tug to a stop if the need arises. The AGV can read barcodes or other prompts to stop under certain circumstances, or slow down or speed up in different locations.
AGV – Natural Navigation
Our full AGV solution utilises the latest in navigation and safety sensor technology to deliver electric tow tugs that interact with their environment, travelling safely and efficiently between destinations.
Safety sensors detect obstacles and risks, slowing or stopping movement. For example, they can reduce speed when the floor is wet and/or where visibility is impacted.
Navigation technology ensures the machine travels between destinations, interacting with your environment as required and taking into account ideal routes as well as other machines and operational factors.
