Danfoss's autonomous forklifts increases safety and efficiency
The forklifts are so-called VNAs – Very Narrow Aisle Forklifts. They pick and deliver packages to and from the 12-meter tall product shelves where space is cramped.
“It’s fascinating to see their work, driving fully automatically picking and delivering exactly what they are supposed to. They work fast and their error margin is practically zero. So, they help increase safety and efficiency,” says Frank Neidhardt.
The potential for self-driving forklift solutions at other Danfoss sites worldwide is big. In Danfoss Slovenia, they expect to have self-driving forklifts up and running within the next few years. And a very high number of Danfoss factories worldwide already use AGV’s (automatically guided vehicles) and other transport robots to move components from one area of the factory to another.
