What Is Wire Guidance?
Wire Guidance is an electronic and mechanical system that controls VNA (Very Narrow Aisle) enabled forklifts steering by tracking an energized guidewire. Within each wire-guided aisle, this energized wire is buried inside a beveled cut that is approximately ½” to 5/8” deep. This exclusive system frees operators from steering responsibilities when wire guidance is activated, which in turn results in decreased product and rack damage, operator injuries, and lift truck impacts.
Raymond’s patented No-Tune design quickly and reliably engages guide signals, while providing excellent tracking and stability.

Helping Your Warehouse Space Be
With consumers demands and expectations are leading to an increase in product volume and variety, which requires warehouse to ensure better space utilization and selectivity to these products. An option is adopting narrow aisles, a concept pioneered by Raymond. However, moving to more narrow aisles can present the potential for increased lift truck, rack, and product damage.
To help circumvent these challenges, Raymond introduced wire guidance to automatically guide forklifts through aisles as a solution to assist in reducing the impact that these can have on your operations. Our fully integrated intelligent wire guidance, available for narrow aisle lift trucks including order pickers and turret trucks to automatically guide the vehicles in the aisles.
With this technology, operators are freed from manual steering tasks and are able to focus on more productive tasks including order picking and pallet storing.
