The Fori AGV technology evolved from automated guided vehicles utilized to perform a decking operation at Automotive OEM plants or so called chassis marriage system, which essentially consist synchronizing the AGV with an overhead carrier prior to joining the rear and front suspension along with the exhaust system and the engine to the vehicle chassis. Over the last two decades, Fori Automation was a key supplier of such systems, continues to be in that role, while operating well almost 1,000 AGVs and AGC around the world.

Automotive chassis marriage has widely been accomplished using Rail Guided Vehicles (RGVs), Fori recently supplied an induction wire based system for power and guidance in order to reduce plant infrastructure costs and increase long term flexibility.

The AGVs were developed to support lean, automated manufacturing methodology. The design intent was to build a vehicle that was modular and interchangeable. The AGV system can transport a multitude of different tools, all with different weights and footprints.

The Fori AGVs can handle very heavy loads and move components while keeping deflection to a minimum. Multiple AGVs can be tethered ans synced together to accomplish almost any task.

Fori has recently developed a new low cost conveyance solution to replace the bulky and expensive conveyance systems that are normally used within automotive assembly plants.

Fori Automation’s Tugger AGV is a cost effective material handling solution that increases safety and throughput. They have been designed to replace fork lifts to move components throughout the plant safely.

The tunnel AGVs are smaller in stature in order to fit beneath components in order to lift and move them.
