Alcon Orders Automated Guided Vehicle System

Company News

Egemin recently received an order from Alcon for supplying a laser guided AGV system that will replace the obsolete wire guided AGV system at Alcon. Alcon chose for Egemin instead of extending the existing system supplied by the original AGV manufacturer because the Egemin system delivered a higher flexibility. In that respect, the Egemin system layout can be easily extended in the future and moreover the laser guided vehicles offer more with regard to flexible navigation. The Egemin AGVs will take care of the infeed and outfeed of pallets and the supply of packing material to the packing lines.
