Equipped with a sophisticated control system, the CA-A50060-NSI BST tugger by Creform can navigate up to 50 courses (128 commands each) and is programmable by PC or an onboard touchscreen.
The units follow a magnetic tape guidepath and function as automated tuggers, eliminating the need for manned delivery vehicles. They drive under a stationary cart equipped with a BST hitch, extend a tow pin into the hitch, deliver the cart to a designated work area, then retract the tow pin and move out to pick up another cart.
Programs can be downloaded with USB memory, Ethernet cable or radio frequency. For command initiation, the unit includes an RFID reader.
