Improved Productivity allowing you to concentrate your labour force on tasks that add value to the products

Reduced Product Damage with sensors and load protection devices which allow for precise and secure handling

Reduced Facility Damage with accurate vehicle navigation and obstacle detection

Improved Efficiency through seamless integration with production, ERP and WMS software, producing a smooth, just-in-time flow of materials

Improved Safety with vehicles which move in a predictable, controlled manner with safety sensors for obstacle detection

Improved Flexibility with tools to easily adjust vehicle guidepaths and systems that can easily be expanded or even moved to another facility

Improved Material Accountability with accurate tracking of all material movements

A Variety of Material Handling Solutions

At JBT we provide more than products – we provide solutions. We will gladly supply the appropriate AGV system for your application and business needs.

In order to optimize pallet movements, JBT can create a computer model of material flow. This simulation accurately predicts what can be expected of the AGV, regardless of movement intricacy. Both simple, A-to-B movements and fully integrated, complex systems can reap benefits from the simulation process.

At JBT, we understand that automation is not one-size-fits-all, which is why we offer a range of system options. If you'd like to automate simple A-to-B movements, we can provide a stand-alone AGV. However, if your automation goals are more complex, we can also supply fully integrated systems, controlled by our SGV Manager software and compatible with your business systems (ERP, WMS, MES, etc.). Our range allows customers to start simple and expand in the future.

Automation with JBT robotic vehicles has always provided safe, precise, on-time delivery of materials in manufacturing and warehousing. Our committment to the AGV industry shows in our dedicated customer service and innovative approach to system solutions. With this experience and our range of options, JBT will minimize your total cost of ownership and maximize your return on investment.
