Based on Rocla's extensive know-how of designing and manufacturing both forklifts and automated guided vehicles the customer's process can be boosted with the most suitable solution consisting of forklifts and/or AGVs with supporting services and systems. The new Rocla ATX, AGV for pallet transfers, offers an easy way to automate part of the process. It is designed especially for automated picking and pallet handling even in longer distances within a process.


Rocla analyzes and improves constantly customers' intralogistics processes. Analyzation starts with Rocla's intralogistics analysis, in which the current situation is being examined and assessed and a proposal to make the process more effective is being made. By addressing even the smallest parts of the process one can shorten the total time used for the process, reduce costs significantly and improve the productivity. Intralogistics solution is tailor-made for each customer, and also possible changes in the process or in the operating environment are taken into account. The solution is always scalable: AGVs can be added later on next to forklifts or the other way around.

New Rocla ATX improves the efficiency of the process

By automating part of the process impressive cost savings can be achieved, especially when working in shifts or in longer transfers. Personnel can be utilized in more demanding and pleasant tasks instead of monotonous, routine transfers. Pick-to-AGV makes picking work more effective even by a third: employee picks up items in the picking area into the automated truck to be transported further by the truck. There is no need for the employee to leave the picking area or drive the truck which saves time remarkably. Using automation increases also the safety of working premises.

Rocla ATX is especially designed for automated picking and pallet transfers. It complements Rocla's product line of serially manufactured AGVs. The ATX is durable, flexible and modular AGV with short delivery and payback time. It can also be leased so that no capital is tied up in investment. The ATX is based on proven technology familiar from Rocla's forklifts so its reliability is excellent with easy maintenance.
