Automation solutions featuring the Raymond Courier™ 3030 stacker automated lift truck with Seegrid guided vision technology
This new, versatile Raymond Courier™ 3030 is a 2,500-pound-capacity automated stacker that combines Seegrid unparalleled guided vision technology with Raymond’s end-to-end warehouse solutions for an answer to the industry need to automate end-of-line and P&D (pick-up and drop-off) applications. Ideal for handling and transporting goods between connected manufacturing and warehouse facilities, the Raymond Courier™ 3030 stacker automated lift truck helps maximize workforce productivity and drive down labor costs. The reverse motion and auto-engagement functions optimize workflow and increase productivity. The Raymond Courier™ 3030 stacker automated lift truck has a second-level vertical capability to reach heights up to 72 inches.
Zoning and Positioning
Raymond’s zoning-and-positioning solution provides a fast and simple way to improve consistency, productivity and efficiency, helping minimize pick errors and variability through floor-embedded radio frequency identification reader (RFID) sensors that transmit instructions to a lift truck.
In-Aisle Detection System
Raymond’s In-Aisle Detection System, used in conjunction with wire guidance in very narrow aisles, is designed as a training reinforcement tool to provide notice of the proximity of a truck to certain objects and will decelerate a truck to a complete stop when such objects are detected.
