Most Accurate Lotus Car Ever, Thanks to Cutting Edge Metrology

The CMM installed in Hethel is set one meter into the floor on a special foundation. It means that a car for inspection carried on an automated guided vehicle (AGV) is able to access the area without the need for any lifting equipment.

AGV and AMR Technology: Solving Your Internal Logistics Challenges

AGV's and AMR's address a number of key manufacturing process and facility-related concerns as well as key cost-related metrics in the migration towards continuous improvement philosophies such as lean manufacturing and six sigma.

Following the Path to AGV Safety

Although automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are, by definition, designed to run autonomously, they usually need to collaborate with people and therefore move, and react, in a safe, predictable manner.

The Imperative to Automate to Relieve Labor Constraints: The Reason to Attend the Automate Show

Because there is such a shortage of fork truck drivers for the foreseeable future, automation has become an imperative. The only alternative is to automate bringing loads of finish goods (or sub-assembly) from docks to warehouses and warehouse to docks.

What's the Difference Between AGVs and AMRs?

We have been hearing a lot about AGVs and AMRs in warehouses and fulfillment centers. But do you understand the differences between these two? Let's find out from the experts.

Smart, Compact Electromechanical Actuators Improve Productivity and Space Efficiency for Industrial AGVs

The more functionality AGV designers can pack into a small footprint, the greater will be the value to the end-user. Choosing the right actuation technology is critical to that value, and AGV designers are increasingly choosing smart electromechanical actuators.

Cincoze DI-1000 Drives AGVs in Factories and Warehouses

An enormous warehouse necessitates mapping of thousands of positions, and for the system to track order numbers and individual products on the pallets while transmitting information wirelessly back to the central control room for collection and monitoring.

AGV Selection Process for 2022 Must Start with Delivery Commitment Guarantee

Throughout industrial manufacturing, distribution, and logistics the lead time from many AGV manufacturers is more than a year. That means product ordered in Q1 2022 will not be delivered until the following year.

The Mini Series Takes a Taxi

In the Adaptive Machine Platform Prolynk, manufacturing machinery and assembly stations can be configured and combined with total flexibility. The parts move individually from station to station, in a mini-taxi so to speak.

As the use of robotics and automation increases, so too does the need to protect these valuable assets.

The risk to humans in warehouses is well known with the UK logistics sector reporting around 28,000 non-fatal accidents at work annually but businesses are now realising the risk of safety to highly sophisticated and expensive assets noting that these too require protection.

AGV Robotization: The Solution

Businesses which have invested in robotics quickly realize the impact of increased productivity and continue investing. There is no "turn back syndrome" for these solutions; the increases in competitiveness and quality push businesses to adopt a continuous robotics policy.

Effective Wireless Charging for AGVs

The trend towards lithium-ion batteries in intralogistics continues. Almost all large forklift manufacturers now have models with lithium-ion drives. In the field of driverless transport systems and mobile robots, powerful lithium-ion technology is already standard.

Honeywell Study: Advancements In Warehouse Automation Will Present New Job Classes, Career Opportunities

While investment in automation is seen as vital for companies to remain competitive, supply chain leaders of American companies still envision a strong need for human capital in the workplace, according to a Honeywell

Integrated Wheel Drives Lower Cost of Mobile Robot Ownership

The lifetime cost of ownership of a mobile robot is largely influenced by the design of its drivetrain. If the OEM uses well designed and proven components, the mobile robot will provide many years of service with minimal downtime for maintenance.

AGILOX Autonomous Mobile Robots are substantially saving costs by applying Artificial Swarm Intelligence

Swarm Intelligence (SI) and bio-inspired computing have attracted great interest in almost every area of science and engineering, including robotics, over the last two decades.
