For printing manufacturing enterprises, utilizing autonomous forklifts (AGFs) for material handling and warehousing significantly enhances internal logistics efficiency. This adoption facilitates industrial transformation, upgrades, and high-quality development. 


Project Overview: 

A prominent printing manufacturing company in East China recently implemented VisionNav's internal logistics automation solution to connect multiple floors and link various processes. The integration of VNSL14 pallet stacker AGFs and VNST20 slim shaped pallet handling AGFs streamlined the transition from semi-finished to finished goods, ensuring seamless operations across complex workflows. 


Operational Details: 

  • Facility Layout: The project spans from the first to the fourth floor with semi-finished pallets measuring 950-650 mm and finished product pallets of 1200-1000 mm. The operating areas have a corridor and stacking channel width of 2300 mm or less. 
  • Automated Handling: The VNST20 slim shaped AGFs manage semi-finished goods, facilitating both flat and cross-floor transfers, which significantly reduces manual labor. Post-process, the VNSL14 AGFs handle the finished goods, moving them from production lines to storage or loading docks. 
  • Efficiency Boosts: The integration of AGFs and RCS 2.0 central control systems, coupled with the company's Warehouse Management System (WMS), optimizes task allocation based on real-time data, enhancing precision and reducing delays. 


Safety and Innovation: 

  • Accident Risk Reduction: Equipped with advanced 3D safety features, the AGFs operate effectively in mixed human-machine environments, quickly adapting to obstacles to minimize collision risks and goods damage. 
  • System Integration: The RCS 2.0 central control seamlessly interfaces with the WMS, ensuring efficient workflow management across the supply chain. 


Sustainability and Cost-Efficiency: 

  • Zero Retrofitting: The use of 3D laser positioning navigation eliminates the need for physical modifications like QR codes or reflectors, facilitating quick deployment and low maintenance. 
  • Scalability: Designed with future expansions in mind, the system can adapt to increasing operational demands without significant reconfigurations. 



VisionNav's expertise in the printing manufacturing industry is demonstrated through its ability to empower businesses with advanced automation technologies. This project showcases how strategic integration of autonomous systems can sustain industry leadership and foster competitive advantages in fast-evolving markets.
