Robotic Hyster® lift trucks for the automotive supply chain


ew self-drive lift truck solutions from Hyster Europe will enable the automotive supply chain to introduce

“affordable automation” for repetitive handling tasks. Intelligent Hyster® trucks can help support Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, through reliable consistency, with the flexibility of manual use to perform additional tasks and support the “unexpected”. “Repetitive lift truck tasks can be unnecessarily

expensive,” says Tracy Brooks, Industry Solutions Group Manager for Hyster Europe. “The automotive industry has been adopting automated technologies in its factories to keep the busy production lines running smoothly, while driving down cost.” Hyster ‘Driven by Balyo’ technology uses reliable

Hyster® lift trucks with the addition of robotic control systems to help improve accuracy, efficiency and reduce damage. The automation hardware and software neatly interfaces with the truck’s electronic systems allowing them to be used manually when required.


Harnessing Industry 4.0 to Create a ‘Smart Factory’

he rise of automation and machinery capable of talking to one another has led many experts to

proclaim that we are in the age of the fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), with the potential to change not only manufacturing but the world. These Industrial Revolutions appear to be happening

at an ever-increasing rate due to rapid technological advancements. Meaning it is crucial for factories to stay ahead of

these advancements as each passing Industrial Revolution has offered vast opportunities for factories to improve their efficiency and product quality, whilst increasing output by utilising new, innovative methods. The fourth Industrial Revolution is no different, as it

uses big data and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) to allow machinery integration that enables the machines to independently optimise each part of the process for ever-faster production. Find out how your factory can benefit from Industry 4.0 in our free guide .
