Since 1997 we design and manufacture Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs), delivering Forklifts and Shuttles to either small and large businesses.
The spreading of COVID-19 virus in Europe, and in particular in the Northern area of Italy, it’s a daily news in the last two months and in Emilia-Romagna region, the lock-down started on the 8th March.
In that period of silence, PROXAUT did not stand by and showing its determination, took immediately the situation under control issuing, since the very beginning, procedures to limit the transmission of the virus. The keyword was “be safe and protect yourself” for all the staff since human resources were the first priority.
The company invested immediately in the supply of personal protection equipment, enabling the remote working and re-arranging, in a very short time, the internal procedures including the working shifts and places. In Italy, the remote working is not so spread but, on the contrary, PROXAUT already exploited this kind of opportunity in the past for some of its employees, with good results. The forward-looking of this previous pilot project was really decisive to restart the working activity in a very short time since, thank to this, PROXAUT gave to all its stakeholders such as customers, suppliers and employees, the possibility to keep on working.
The current virus spreading never stopped the growth of the company and, in spite of the local and institutional adversity, hired three new skilled employees who will increase the internal competences and knowledge.
Italy is a very strong country and, especially in this difficult situation, proved once again that companies are not only for business, but also for giving a local social support.

Shuttles can handle any product from 500 kg up to 170.000 kg. Shuttles can be fully personalized, delivered with motorized conveyors or belts on board, interfacing any production line, any automated warehouse or any robotized island.
These AGVs represent a natural replacement of traditional frontal forklifts, offering to the end user a terrific flexibility, they are capable to lift, as a standard, any pallet from 300 kg up to 6.000 kg.
VNA Forklifts are delivered with either bi-directional or tri-directional forks. Standard applications are limited to 11 m working height, but customization is always available.
The level and quality of customization of our AGV is endless: indoor, outdoor, electric power system, oversize, overweight, total payload, navigation systems, HW interfaces, SW interfaces… any AGV can be equipped with roller, motorized chain or belt conveyors, forks.
Proxaut has access to the most reliable navigation technologies within our industry. Particularly, each AGV can be configured for inductive guidance, laser guidance (LGV), inertial guidance (IGV). In most cases, each application is better suited by one specific navigation system or a combination of two of them.
