Our Fred AGVs (automated guided vehicles) are for manufacturing, distribution, and warehouse facilities to improve worker productivity and safety around materials movement using simple, durable, and effective technology. Barcoding, Inc. designs, manufacturers, and supports the production of Fred AGVs in our Philadelphia, Pennsylvania office. For manufacturing, our primary automation workflows improve efficiency and safety around materials movement in: dock to production; end-of-line to shipping; and, assembly to in-line conveyance. For warehouses; our primary automation workflows improve efficiency and safety around materials movement in: docks to racks; and, racks to shipping.Fred is guided by magnetic tape and can carry a 2,500 lbs. load with up to 5,000 lbs. towing and has safety-rated scanners to avoid collisions. Built for those who “just want to get the job down”, Fred is easy to install and maintain.“FRED allows our people to use their skills and training instead of just moving product back and forth. It’s amazing that this one robot can make our team so much more efficient and productive,” said the Director of Operations at Monarch Brands. In 2023, Barcoding, Inc. acquired FRED Automation. FRED Automation was spun out of ASI Technologies, Inc. in April 2021. ASI is an electric wheel drive designer and manufacturer that developed its first prototype FRED AGV in 2017. With this acquisition, Barcoding is proud to offer Fred AGVs as part of our solutions.
