Automatic Guided Vehicle Tending & Handling – Confectionery

RA ‘s Automatic Guided Vehicles (RA-GV ‘s) are helping a local manufacturer to cook up one of Australia’s favourite confectionery treats…

Application in Action :

Above: Simulation showing concept of vehicle delivery to retort ovens.

Prompted by our client’s challenge, RA custom-designed a fixture allowing the RA-GV ‘s to reach deep into ovens to position and pick-up trays of confectionery. After cooking, the RA-GV ‘s deliver the trays to the cooling room.

The solution also features a complete Process Control system by RA which includes interfacing with the existing ovens and the client’s Production Management System, providing real-time status, control and traceability.
