Automated Guided Vehicle AGV & Tugger
Automated Guided Vehicles AGV, are an automation solution often used to transport products, supplies and/or goods from one location to another in a consistent way. AGVs provide a streamlined solution where repetition is the norm, in order to minimize technologies or steps in the process such as forklifts, conveyors or labor than is used to transport carts from one area to the next.
AGV systems are being used in a growing variety of applications than ever before. Where they were once used only for warehousing and long distance transportation, today they are now being used as short move transfer cars, in-process transportation and as an integrated part of on-line manufacturing processes.
As you begin to evaluate a material transport application, you will not only consider conveyor, mechanical transfer cars, or conventional forklift, but also Automated Guided Vehicles, AGV. Let our engineers help you develop the scope and identify the functionality of your AGV system.
Automated Guided Vehicles AGV’s offer:
- A return on investment
- Improve safety
- Minimize downtime
- Increase productivity
- Eliminates or reduces product and equipment damage
- Eliminate single point failure and restricted floor space
- Flexible manufacturing solution providing real-time, scalable production feedback
- Life cycle of an AGV solution can be greater than 15 years
Automated Guided Vehicle Tugger: Pick-Up and Drop-Off Eliminating Repetitive Tasks
An Automated Guided Vehicle Tugger has the capability of moving large amounts of product in a manufacturing facility or distribution warehouse at a single pass. The unmanned AGV Tugger pulls pre-defined loads with the right quantity of product to be dropped off or picked-up at designated stops. The repetitive task is fully automated and can be integrated into a new or existing WMS or ERP system.
AGV Tuggers can also be manned pulling loads throughout the facility on an add-needed basis. Pulling more than a forklift, the AGV Tugger saves time by completing tasks faster, more efficiently and without operator issue.
AGV Tuggers are easy to install and can be quickly changed as routes can be added or removed from the pre-defined path. Easy to maintain, indicators will light up and sound when attention is needed.
Benefits of AGV Tuggers:
- Eliminate repetitive tasks
- Scalable configuration
- Integrates into existing systems
- Ensures safety of products and pedestrians
