Seegrid and Hyster team up

by MM&D Online Staff

Hyster and Seegrid are working together to make Seegrid’s vision-guided automation technology available to Hyster customers. The system delivers smart navigation without the need for wires, lasers or tape like other AGVs.

“The rugged Hyster product line paired with Seegrid’s revolutionary vision-guided navigation system combines the best of two solid technologies,” said Anthony Horbal, chief executive officer for Seegrid. “The relationship between our two companies provides Hyster customers the opportunity to deploy an important automation solution with a trusted equipment brand already used every day in manufacturing and distribution.”

The Guided by Seegrid technology is meant to help reduce the total cost of ownership for certain lift truck fleets. This reduction will offset labour needs and enable existing employees to be redeployed to value-added roles within the business. The handling of materials through automated transportation processes also helps improve facility safety and productivity, further reducing costs.
