Seegrid Corp., an autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) development company, introduced Tuesday its Palion Tow Tractor Series 8, an upgraded version of its automated tow tractor to help customers increase productivity and safety within manufacturing, warehousing, and distribution.
The company, which closed a $52 million growth equity investment in September, has been focused on expanding its suite of AMRs this past year, including the premiere of its first autonomous lift truck, Palion Lift AMR, and the recent upgrade of its Palion Pallet Truck.
In an interview with FreightWaves, Jeff Christensen, the vice president of product at Seegrid, explained the importance of AMR technology to the modern-day business and how its Palion series of AMRs is empowering customers.
Seegrid’s newest Tow Tractor helps in a specific niche of manufacturing and warehousing, with its ability to carry up to 10,000 pounds while being able to understand an extended frame of view to better comprehend its surroundings.
Christensen explained how these capabilities, particularly the automation of moving heavier goods, is a product that customers rely on for safety standards.
