Custom Automated Guided Vehicles

No two companies have identical needs. There will always be some amount of customization needed in order to create an automated guided vehicle system that truly fits your specifications and application. Dematic recognizes this and teams up with you to determine the exact vehicle type that will meet production needs. This sets Dematic far apart from the other AGV suppliers as the leading automated guided vehicle supplier in the world.

We can cost-effectively offer custom vehicles because standardized control cabinets and off-the-shelf components are used on all vehicles. By standardizing some parts, control systems, and software capabilities, Dematic is able to considerably reduce engineering costs and you can be assured that your custom AGV will perform as you expect.
