Product Portfolio
  • Automatic Guided Vehicles

  • Transbotics Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV) are driverless, computer-controlled vehicles that are programmed to transport materials through designated pickup and delivery routines within a manufacturing or distribution facility. Our AGVs are equipped with the latest laser technology and control systems which allows for the highest degree of complex routing and guidance navigation. Combine that with Transbotics Movement Optimizer software (TMO) which allows the vehicle to transmit information concerning system status, inventory tracking, and system controls to a system controller and you have the most sophisticated material handling solutions available. We manufacture fork-style, conveyor, tugger / tow, unit load / conveyor, heavy load, assembly line and engineered-to-order (custom) vehicle types. All of our vehicles have options, such as tricycle steering (one drive motor), quad-steering (two drive motors), laser guidance, magnetic tape, wire guidance or magnetic spot guidance. Since we make Tailor-Made™ vehicles, options can change. Below are the most common models
  • Assembly Line

  • Assembly Line AGVs are commonly used for assembly lines or can also replace traditional in-floor tow lines. These AGVs are most commonly ordered as tape guided configurations but are also available in Laser, Spot and Wire guidance for maximum layout flexibility. Transbotics offers standard and customized solutions to meet the end user’s unique requirements. Below you will find various assembly line and production vehicles that can be applied to various applications.

  • Unit Load & Conveyor Vehicles

  • Transbotics Unit Load and Conveyor Style AGVs are used to move pallets, drums, boxes, totes and skidded items throughout various areas of a production, manufacturing or distribution facility. The most common use is when all load transfers are to or from a stationary conveyor. The automated vehicle provides the flexibility of connecting stationary conveyors with other conveyor or receiving stations without the physical requirements of a traditional conveyance system. This benefit frees up valuable floor space and allows the flexibility for change in the production process. The Combination Conveyor/Lift Deck type AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) is an excellent choice when you must interface with conveyors that are different heights. Transbotics Conveyor Style AGVs come in various sizes, heights and weight capacities. We specialize in developing Tailor-Made AGVs to provide our customers with the best material handling solutions for their needs. Below you will find the common Conveyor AGV styles.

  • Warehouse Management Software

  • Building Customized Warehouse Management Solutions with Proven Technology.

    Transbotics Movement Optimizer (TMO). TMO is a proprietary software system developed by Transbotics that is a supervisory system for control and monitoring of sub-systems and equipment used in production facilities. It can manage AGV systems, AS/RS systems, Robotic systems, conveyors, automatic cranes and data input devices such as bar-code scanners and RFID systems. As an interfacing supervisor TMO can act as an overall scheduler / router and /or as an object transfer and coordinator between different subsystems.

    It can also coordinate schedules and movements with other systems such as Warehouse Management, Order Management and Production scheduling systems. This can be done via communication with other systems existing either locally or remotely from the TMO system. The user interface is highly standardized and user friendly. In addition to all the standard menus, it is possible to attach graphics for presentation of course of event, and statistics. There is also an alarm function for presentation and handling of errors and /or warnings.
      • Transbotics TMO Software
