Seegrid has launched the GT10 robotic industrial truck tow tractor in the European Union after extensive review and testing.

Fully compliant with all the requirements for CE marking, the GT10 is currently in use in North America. Seegrid COO Mitchell Weiss says: "Compliance with the comprehensive CE requirements assures both the health and safety of European workers, as well as presents American users an additional level of confidence."

He adds that Seegrid chose to launch the machine in the EU because European factories have "high labour rates and greater requirements for worker ergonomics".

"As a result, they use quite a lot of automation. The GT10 will support these automated operations by delivering goods reliably and on time, while reducing manned travel time and risks associated with driving trucks."

Weiss notes that with the large European manufacturing base, Seegrid expects the GT10 to be used primarily in parts-to-line applications.

"Many of Seegrid's customers are multinationals, and often corporate leaders are not based in North America. As a world-class leader, we need to ship our technology worldwide."

Weiss is responsible for the strategic and operational leadership of the engineering and manufacturing departments. He is also the co-author of "Industrial Robotics: Technology, Programming and Applications" and holds 20 patents.

Founded in 2003 and based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Seegrid Corporation's robotic vision-guided technology transforms industrial vehicles into unmanned, automated pallet trucks and tow tractors that operate without the need for wire, tape, laser or other automated guided vehicle guidance systems.
