The GoPal Solution can be used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from simple and complex delivery to production support – or any combination thereof.
In a simple delivery application, a GoPal AMR will automatically transport a pallet/top module from point A to point B. For example, picking-up a pallet/top module from the end of the production line and delivering it to the warehouse.
In the case of the our pallet AMRs, this will often include a Pallet Station at the end of the production line (pick-up point) and a Conveyor Station interface to the warehouse inbound conveyor system (delivery point).
In a complex delivery application, a GoPal AMR will transport a pallet/top module from A to B, C or D.
An example could be the delivery of raw materials from a warehouse to multiple production cells. This would typically be managed by the WMS/EPR system, which issues orders and controls material flows.
For the GoPal pallet AMRs, this will typically include Pallet Stations at either end of the flow, often with a Pallet Sensor on the receiving end to ensure that the Pallet Station is empty and ready to receive a new pallet.
In a production support application (or serial simple delivery) a GoPal AMR will transport a pallet/top module from A to B, then B to C, then C to D etc.
An example would be to transport intermediate goods from one machine in the production line to the next, in order to minimize parking time in buffer storage.
