A Small AGV with impressive statistics to meet the most demanding tasks
Industry today is seeking ways of improving efficiency, and increasing levels of automation are noticeable in most factories to enable such goals to be achieved. In the field of material handling for example, driverless automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are becoming a common solution to providing safer and more efficient internal logistics in a variety of industries.
Solving’s latest AGV is one of the smallest in our range measuring 82cm long, 63cm wide and 30cm high, but has all the characteristics of larger AGVs with an impressive load capacity of 350kg. Although the new AGV can travel at up to 1.1 metres/second, it meets all the necessary safety standards and regulations to ensure that collisions with personnel, factory surroundings and other vehicles are avoided.
Our Small AGV is built to the highest standards to provide a very robust and capable vehicle, equally at home in a tough industrial area or in a clean medical environment. Manoeuvrability is exceptional, allowing the AGV to enter a load and rotate 90° to move sideways to turn the tightest corners or for pallet collection in a narrow gangway.
A number of navigation methods are available to choose from: laser, contour, magnetic spot sensors, optical and inductive wire guidance. In certain cases these options can be combined to optimise route accuracy or to accommodate a challenging route.
Various interfaces are available depending on the customer’s requirements, such as built-in lifting posts, positioning cones or guides to provide repeatable accuracy, and the stability of high loads during movement can also be assured. Automatic AGV charging can be installed to provide 24/7 availability and usage.
Various uses for small AGVs
Some typical uses of Solving Small AGV are the handling of frequency converters, tyres and surgical equipment, each application having its unique requirements and presenting us with new opportunities to prove the value of investing in Solving products.
Almost every product in Solving’s vast portfolio is customised to suit exacting requirements; the features and pictures in this article refer to Solving’s smallest AGV.
