Bito, a German manufacturer of storage and order picking systems, has unveiled a new generation of its LEO automated guided vehicles (AGVs).

Marketed as an affordable yet productive automated internal transport system, LEO was introduced in 2017 as the simplest AGV on the market. 

Bito says its new LEO flow and LEO carrier offer advantages over manual handling and conveyor alternatives for transporting bins and containers.

“Delivered ready-to-go, LEO provides users with a flexible, future-proof and productive intralogistics solution,” says Edward Hutchison, Bito managing director.

“By enhancing productivity without need for complex installation, costly infrastructure and control software that will require upgrading or a large capital commitment, LEO provides a rapid return on investment – generally within a year, depending on the application. 

“And the flexible system can be easily scaled up to match business growth, with individual LEOs added straight off the shelf.”

The LEO carrier has four shelves, a maximum load capacity of 50 kg and a battery run time of up to 16 hours. 

It can be directed to various destinations, used as a trolley to accompany order pickers or it can take picked goods to packing stations. 

LEO flow is equipped with a belt conveyor top and an automatic lifting mechanism. It has a maximum load capacity of 35 kg and a battery runtime of 10 to 14 hours. 

Bito says the model is ideal for picking up and delivering goods to and from conveyor systems, can be fed directly from an automated small parts warehouse and transfer goods to automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS). 

The new transporters can swivel 180- or 90-degrees on the spot, reverse up to 5 m and can travel up to 25 m in a straight line without lane-marking. This avoids lane damage at junctions with frequent forklift traffic.
