ACT Forklift's Autonomous Scrubber

Nilfisk Liberty SC50 floor scrubber

What is an autonomous scrubber?

Imagine eliminating traditional ride-on sweeper scrubbers from your workplace cleaning routine. Imagine how much more your workplace could achieve without members of your staff having to man a sweeper scrubber to clean your floors. Imagine ACT's autonomous scrubber in your factory or warehouse, bringing performance and value together!

How can an autonomous scrubber be used in my warehouse?

With ACT Forklift's autonomous scrubber-dryer, the tedious, routine task of cleaning floors can be eliminated by your workforce so your people can get more done with their time on the clock! They work to apply a cleaning solution and aggressively scrub and dry surfaces in one pass. Autonomous scrubbers are self-driving commercial floor scrubbers designed to scrub floors using advanced navigation technology. This advanced navigation technology combined with a system of lasers and cameras that guide it through complex, real-world scenarios makes autonomous scrubbers a must-have at your facility.

What features does ACT Forklift's autonomous scrubber have?

  • CopyCat mode: an operator guides the machine along desired cleaning path. The SC50 will remember where it went and follow the designated pattern from then on.
  • Fill-in mode: simply trace the perimeter and the SC50 chooses the most efficient path to clean the designated area. Your floors get clean without any further assistance.
  • Manual mode: gives the operator complete control over movement and cleaning; it can be used as a “normal” scrubber dryer.
