An automated guided vehicle or automatic guided vehicle (AGV) is a mobile robot that follows markers or wires in the floor, or uses vision, magnets, or lasers for navigation. They are most often used in industrial applications to move materials around a manufacturing facility or warehouse. Application of the automatic guided vehicle has broadened during the late 20th century.
There are several different models of AGVs with towing capacities of up to 50,000 lb. All of these models can tow single or multiple trailers and be configured for manual or automatic loading.
Benefits of a Tow System:
• The ability to move considerably more loads with multiple trailers than a single fork truck• Material handling efficiency is planned and predictable• A well-designed system can operate at a programmed speed to meet production rates and maintain safety• Localized use of manual for trucks should replace maintenance costs and prolong the life of the equipment• Increased safety
There are eight different models of AGVs unit load carrier vehicles. Unit load carriers feature rugged steel frame construction designed to function in industrial environments. Each model offers a unique combination of capacity, steering, load transfer and dimensional characteristics.
Benefits of a Unit Load Carrier:
• Loads delivered and moved upon command • Improved response time• Reduced product damage• Efficient scheduling• Reduced aisle traffic• Flexible routing
