Combilift has launched the Combi-AGT 4-wheel electric stand-on model, an autonomous dual operational sideloader for long loads.
The Combi-AGT, with a lift capacity of 5,000kg/11,000lbs and various lift heights, addresses the requirements of steel service centers and the metal industries, which typically handle long loads. Its design is based on the electric manually operated Combi-GTE model, which is designed to work in rail guided narrow aisles.
The laser-based sensors, fitted at various positions on the chassis, constitute of an anti-collision safety system, as required by the American National Standards Institute. If the machine senses an obstacle or pedestrian that has entered its path, it automatically slows down and will, if necessary, stop in cases of emergency; it will then continue to drive automatically when the obstacle has cleared its safety sensor area. The enhanced adaptive safety system enables the size of the obstacle detection fields to increase or decrease as per the steer angle and speed of the truck.
Its load dimension detection system operates by performing a laser scan of the load to check that its length matches the task sent to the machine. Similarly, when unloading, it checks that the rack in front has sufficient free space to accept the load.
