Rolling Out AGV

DF Automation and Robotics’ unique AGV solves a primary problem faced by the manufacturing industry. With thousands of goods being moved around plants each day, AGV’s are able to reduce the reliability of the human workforce by automating this process, but with more flexibility than that of conveyor belts.
