GoPal - functionality

GoPal lets you automate pallet transport and collect all the data you need to optimize internal transport. Best of all, it can be integrated with your current ERP/WMS systems and does not require any significant changes to your buildings or workflows.

Automated pallet transport

The GoPal is a mobile robot (Self Driving Vehicle) that allows you to automate transport of EUR-pallets – either as part of industry 4.0 automatization or on its own. The system can be set up to fit any type of application, from simple A-B delivery with a call button to fully automated production support with ERP/WMS integration. You can download the GoPal data sheet or read more about applications here.

Choose your load capacity

With the introduction of the new GoPal 800, we have upgraded the maximum load capacity to 800 kg. This means that you can now choose the GoPal robot that best suits your internal transport needs based on load weights, transport distance, pick-up/delivery frequency etc. The GoPal 400 offers a load capacity of 400 kg and up to 12 hours of operation on a full charge, whereas a fully charged new GoPal 800 will double load capacity to 800 kg and give you 8 hours of operation.

Reporting/data collection

Data on all aspects of both individual robot and system performance is collected and logged in the GoControl computer for use in connection with future optimisation, troubleshooting and servicing. This extensive data collection provides invaluable insight into the current state of your company’s internal transport and its future needs.

 

GoPal - functionality

Pick-up and delivery

The GoPal uses GoPal Pallet Stations to load and unload a pallet. The GoPal Pallet Station is designed for GoPal to park under the pallet and then lift the pallet off the Station and onto the GoPal itself.
Depending on the transport need the GoPal solution is configured with a number of GoPal Pallet Stations as pick-up, delivery or transit points. The GoPal Pallet Stations can be delivered in different configurations, standalone or with interface to a conveyer belt.

GoPal - functionality

Automatic battery charging

GoPal uses modern LiFePO4 battery technology, which allows for both fast and partial charging – without costly employee involvement and installation of ventilated charging stations. Robots are charged automatically when it best fits their work schedule to ensure that there is always a GoPal ready and available to get the job done – even in facilities that operate 24/7.

Maneuvrability/navigation

The GoPal needs less space to operate than an employee with a pallet jack and can turn on its own axis. This alone makes it one of the most manoeuvrable and agile mobile robots on the market. It also features intelligent navigation that allows GoPal to make dynamic decisions on the fly. If GoPal comes across an obstacle – such as an object or a person – it will drive around it. If the path is completely blocked, the GoPal will find the shortest alternate route to its destination.

Plug and play flexibility

One of the greatest features of the GoPal is its plug and play flexibility. The GoPal is designed to fit known industry standards and will let you automate EURO-pallet transport without having to make changes to either your work flows or your facility as such. This means that you can expect your GoPal to be up and running in a few days. If you are looking for a simple and cost-efficient way to make business as usual even better, this is it.

GoPal - functionality

ERP/WMS system integration

The GoPal can be fully integrated into your existing ERP/WMS systems. In this case, your ERP/WMS system will make delivery requests to the GoControl computer, which then places a delivery order in the robot system queue. These orders can be assigned priorities from low (waste removal) to high (materials supply).
