John Hayes of BALYO Sees Driving Throughput Up to 55% Using Autonomous Reach Trucks

According to John Hayes, Sales Director at BALYO, autonomous reach trucks are most valuable in the manufacturing, distribution, and 3PL environment when embedded with infrastructure-free navigation technology. Load movements up to 55% faster dramatically increase throughput. Hayes was featured in the recent issue of AutomationMedia. Read more here

“After a decade of research and development, the best-in-class reach trucks use 3D cameras to pick and drop pallets safely. The reach robot drives cost savings and quality improvements. Pick and drop from conveyors, gravity racks, and mobile racks add to numerous application possibilities,” shared Hayes. 

Because of the wide variety of designs in 3PLs and plant floors, load overhang detection helps to continuously monitor load size and position during a pick/drop process.  A curtain laser automatically and dynamically must be able to detect an obstacle at ground level (or at any height) ensuring optimal safety conditions.

About BALYO:

Pascal Rialland, CEO of BALYO and leader in the design and development of innovative robotic solutions for material handling trucks, shared that BALYO considerably strengthened commercial development prospects. The company is counting on an enhanced technological platform which reduces sales cycles and benefiting from the ramp-up of direct sales to complement existing indirect sales channels. The direct sales channel is now fully operational in the USA.

BALYO transforms standard forklift trucks into standalone intelligent robots thanks to its breakthrough proprietary Driven by Balyo™ technology. The geoguidance navigation system developed by BALYO allows vehicles equipped with the system to locate their position in real-time and navigate autonomously inside buildings/warehouses. Within the automated handling vehicle market, BALYO’s 2021 outlook includes the acceleration of profitable growth after the successful implementation of a more efficient and autonomous commercial strategy. BALYO will pursue efforts to accelerate sales in 2021, including the addition of John Hayes, a well-respected and experienced industry thought-leader, as Director of US Sales to grow North American business development. The anchoring of new operational drivers, commercial partnerships forged with integrators, and commercial autonomy through technological developments will uniquely position BALYO in 2021 and beyond.
