Swisslog Introduces TransCar® LC3 – the Next Generation of Automated Guided Vehicles for Hospital Material Handling
Date:5/1/2013

Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Swisslog, the leading supplier of automation solutions for hospital material transport, today announced that it has released the next generation of its TransCar Automated Guided Vehicle. TransCar automates heavy payload movements from receiving docks to central supply; integrating with elevators and doors to move goods seamlessly to and from dock, laundry, food service, pharmacy and lab departments to patient floors, operating rooms and back. The next-generation TransCar AGV features state-of-the-art laser guidance and ultrasonic and photo-eye sensors that support safe, automated material delivery and an intuitive user interface that makes the system easy to learn and easy to operate.

Using TransCar, hospitals can standardize their delivery processes, making demand and response transparent for management and control. Automation assures consistent transport quality and timeliness through defined driving paths with defined speeds. TransCar AGVs handle routine supply and waste deliveries, freeing hospital staff for critical activities that require human interaction. These Automated Guided Vehicles offer a reliable and proven robotic alternative to traditional bulk material transport.

“Automating routine and repetitive deliveries gives hospitals bottom-line benefits through labor savings and by streamlining their material handling processes,” notes Jeff Barber, TransCar North American Product Manager. “In today’s hospital environment, automating material handling makes economic sense – improving workflows and providing just-in-time deliveries of both critical and routine supplies; while reducing injuries, damage to facilities and the demand for manual cart movement, thereby addressing critical manpower shortages.“

Swisslog design engineers work closely with contractors and planners of new hospital construction and renovations, helping them define what, where, when and how materials can be transported by AGV. Through a Preliminary Needs Analysis, facility needs can be right sized for automation with an estimated Return on Investment.
