CE-DFW, A TEXAS-BASED WAREHOUSE SOLUTIONS PROVIDER, HAS ORDERED A MULTI-TUGGER E’GV® SYSTEM INCLUDING EGEMIN’S SUITE OF CONTROL AND SYSTEM SOFTWARE.

HOLLAND, MI—Egemin Automation Inc. will deliver a multi-tugger system for CE-DFW including E’gv®s, E’tricc®, E’tricc® Plus, E’nsor® navigational software, traffic control software, and operator stations. The tuggers have a 10,000-pound capacity and will transport trailers in a manufacturing environment. Adding the E’gv®s to the system will allow manufacturing personnel to focus on value-added tasks, will increase safety, and will decrease product damage.

The system will include E’gv®s moving empty trailers to assembly lines, where operators will load product onto the trailers and send the vehicles to the next assembly line. After the product is loaded from multiple stations, the E’gv®s will transport the trailers to the shipping area, where the trailers will be off-loaded. Operator stations will allow personnel to send or call for E’gv®s.

E’tricc® Plus software will manage traffic in the system and handle messages between the operator stations and E’gv®s. Egemin’s Graphical Monitor will allow viewing and monitoring of the system from anywhere in the end user’s network.
