AGV Training Classes

Daifuku’s Smart Handling Education group offers AGV Training Classes to enhance your knowledge of the features and control systems of the Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) product line. These classes are ideal for technicians, maintenance workers, and engineers to give an in-depth understanding of how to care for AGV systems.

Sessions run 2-5 days and consist of some classroom time but mostly hands-on learning. This empowers our students with the knowledge and understanding on how to maintain and properly troubleshoot their investment. We offer modules that cover mechanical, electrical, software, safety, programming, and maintenance curriculum. Training classes are held at the Novi Innovation Center in Novi, Michigan, or the customer’s site.
