Egemin release new product line: E’gv Compact

HOLLAND, MI—Egemin Automation Inc. will unveil a new product at ProMat 2015 in Chicago, starting March 23, 2015. The E’gv® Compact is a small yet robust new vehicle designed to handle standard-sized loads at higher capacities than the AGCs (Automatic Guided Carts) currently on the market. This flexible vehicle has a faster time to market and much lower price than a custom AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle).

E’gv® Compact will first be released as a tugger vehicle capable of towing up to 10,000 pounds, which is about five times the capacity of an AGC. The base vehicle can also be fitted with forks in the styles of Counterbalance, Straddle, Fork-over, or Pop-up Fork or as a Unitload vehicle utilizing a single or dual Roller Deck. Because of the off-the-shelf nature of this product, the turn around from order to delivery is about 75% faster than that of a custom AGV. Because of the low up-front cost, the ROI is considerably faster.

The vehicle will be built with the quality for which Egemin is known. It also boasts simple installation, an ability to be integrated fully with other Egemin products, and a heavy-duty welded steel body.
