Across the world, changes in materials handling technology are revolutionizing entire industries. The growing availability of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) is introducing opportunities not only in warehousing and logistics operations, but in virtually any application – if you have the right tools. Cascade Corporation, the global leader in state-of-the-art lift truck attachments, continues a history of innovation by offering a wide range of lift truck attachments designed specifically for AGVs. By partnering with Cascade, you can modernize your material handling workflow with the confidence that your solution is fully customized with the latest technology to suit your needs.

Performance You Can Trust

Cascade attachments are known for versatility, reliability, and lower total cost of ownership, and our AGV solutions bring those same benefits to driverless materials handling. Cascade works closely with OEMs in order to design attachments that are fully customized to integrate with specific AGVs. Cascade’s engineers bring decades of expertise and technical knowledge to the design process, allowing them to build highly customized products that fit with both OEM requirements and the customer’s needs.

"The industry knowledge and depth of experience offered by our team are some of our greatest assets," says Jesse Cramer, Global OEM Manager. "Regardless of the challenge, someone from our sales or engineering team has first-hand knowledge of the systems involved, which allows us to deliver products that perform and offer a strong return on investment."

Popular Cascade attachments used in AGV applications include Carton Clamps, Paper Roll Clamps, and Multiple Load Handlers, as well as a wide range of others. Cascade’s full range of attachments can be designed and equipped with an electronic interface and sensors for use with AGVs. As with Cascade’s custom offerings, AGV attachments can be adapted from current offerings to meet the needs of a customer’s workflow.

"A variety of industries stand to benefit from implementing AGVs with the right attachments," says Maurizio Roncari, Cascade Country Manager for Italy, "especially those working with standardized goods such as beverage pallets, cartons, or paper rolls." Roncari adds, "Cascade, as a worldwide company, guarantees an unmatched level of after-sale service on all of our attachments." With Cascade’s dedicated customer support and comprehensive knowledge of materials handling, a Cascade solution is a smart investment for any company working with AGVs.

Driving Innovation

Cascade is constantly pushing AGV attachment technology forward, developing application-specific attachments to improve efficiency and productivity across the supply chain. Attachments are equipped with special features to ensure the highest quality performance within AGV applications. For example, Fork Positioners are equipped with a hydraulic linking mechanism, synchronizing the movement of forks to ensure precision handling in the absence of an operator. Cascade Paper Roll Clamps, in conjunction with AGVs, offer effective damage reduction in paper roll handling. Cascade also continues to develop Internet of Things solutions, interconnecting the lift truck and attachment to obtain and transfer essential data. Our mobile weighing solutions that weigh loads during transfer have the ability to gather data through wireless technology and share it through Bluetooth or wifi with digital platforms.

As the materials handling market evolves, Cascade is committed to continuous improvement and developing the latest technology to ensure the highest quality products and customer satisfaction. With the expertise of global engineering and sales teams and the largest selection of lift truck attachments available, Cascade is able to design a custom solution for your AGV workflow and take your business to the next level.
