With an increased need for safe, quick and reliable stacking of pallets, stillages and other large heavy loads, JBT will be showcasing the flexibility of its CB Series Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) at this year’s LogiMAT.

With a lift height of up to 6 metres, and a lift capacity of 3,500 kgs, the CB Series FTS is capable of block stacking various load types such as pallets in beverage, food and consumer products even in a small footprint. The AGV can also stack complex stillages like wire mesh boxes and automotive-style metal stillages.

“Our CB Series is designed for easy configuration to individual load types, ranging in weight from 500 to 3,500kgs, but we can do larger vehicles on request, with block stacking up to 6 or 7 high depending on the load type and operating conditions,” says Mark Stevenson, JBT’s Sales Director for AGVs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

JBT’s systems are configurable to suit customer requirements by adding additional safety features, and using multiple fork attachments. All load handling capabilities are completely integrated for highly reliable and repeatable picking and dropping functions, even at the highest elevations with the heaviest loads. These can include barcode readers or RFID (radio-frequency identification), and integrated 3D cameras for the most demanding stacking precision requirements.

JBT has been designing and manufacturing AGVs for over 26 years for the global market. Last year it introduced a new forkover-style AGV specifically designed for the European market. It also produces counterbalance units, a freezer vehicle, a reach truck, outdoor AGVs and trailer loading solutions.
