Floor transporters are wheeled bogies that travel along the ground in workshops, warehouses, factories and other environments carrying bulky or heavy loads.
As one of the UK’s most innovative and experienced lifting equipment manufacturers, Pelloby can produce a floor transporter or automated guided vehicle to help you with any handling requirement.
Designing bespoke floor transporters
Our design team understand that every handling application is different and therefore requires a tailored solution for best results.
We work with our clients in the initial consultation phases of a project, providing detailed drawings and visiting your site to take accurate measurements of the space available and the goods being handled. This helps us produce floor transporters (also known as floor bogies) perfectly suited to each application.
In the past we have produced self-propelled floor transporters for capacities of all sizes – from relatively light weights up to loads of over 100 tonnes.
Take a look at this video showing a 100 tonne capacity floor running bogie in action during a test at the Pelloby factory:
Automated Guided Vehicles
Our floor transporters are typically radio control operated, letting you traverse the system between various workstations as required. We can design these bogies to move only in straight lines or negotiate bends and even travel up and down slopes.
To ensure the utmost in workplace safety our floor transporters can be fitted with warning beacons and audible alarms that activate while the system is in motion to warn nearby workers that it is in use. We also offer laser scanners that automatically stop the floor bogie from moving if it comes into contact with another object as a failsafe.
