Automated Guided Vehicles for the production industry

The benefits of AGV's are many: 

better warehousing efficiency, streamlined logistics management, limited labour costs, increased delivery speeds, streamlined logistics management, superior overall warehousing efficiency, heightened product quality, and reduced risk of workplace injury, to name just a few. 

When integrated into facility automation and control systems, AGV's become integral to achieving digitalisation and smart factory goals.

Tailored engineering

Our standard to your needs

Our standard is manufactured to your facility and your industry-needs. From tailor-made engineering up to the electrical, mechanical and software afterlife,

our team designs the right solution for you. 

Load handling

Custom automatic load transfer decks

  • AGV with built-in conveyors are an exceptional fit for expanding the functionality of traditional conveyor systems.

    In fact, these AGV's provide unfixed conveyor extensions and are able to pick-up from and deliver to multiple conveyors.

  • This specific type of AGV is inspired by the conventional human-manned forklifts. The forklift AGV is designed to allow both horizontal and vertical movement of the load. They can also be configured to stack loads in racks.

  • The job is performed by the collaborative manipulator mounted on the top of the platform while the platform itself is free to move. This turns out to be extremely useful for carrying the workpieces from one location to another, immediately after the manipulation, up to the final positioning in shelves, considerably saving average handling time. 

Virtual commissioning

Virtual commissioning permits simulating capacity and validating the DROIDS in a virtual environment beforehand. This to confirm that they will work as expected and significantly reduce system installation cost and start-up time.

The hard- and software configuration

Standard hardware with tailored application software

The SIMOVE automation platform by Siemens is a standardised solution of AGV application, which uses standard automation and drives components plus tailored application software. As a result, it makes system extension easy via open interfaces and third-party integration with navigation software. 

This platform offers a dashboard for KPI-monitoring, determining the optimal dispatch order per AGV, route information including the status and location of each AGV, system alarms and equipment diagrams. It integrates several AGV disciplines into one common system: combining automation and navigation on one common hardware platform; using appropriate operating systems such as Linux for PC-based navigation and control on the PLC for automation; and integrated safety supporting PROFIsafe.

Different track guided navigations

Each situation poses its unique challenges

 

 Combining various guiding navigations can be preferable in some situations.

In addition to the classical track guided navigation systems, Simultaneous Localisation & Mapping (SLAM) offers a more flexible solution.

  • Optical Track Navigation

  • Inductive Track Navigation

  • Magnetic Track Navigation

Simultaneous Localisation & Mapping

SLAM, natural feature navigation

Localisation and mapping can be feature-based or gridmap-based. The former engages with a map of features present in the environment that can be used for navigation and offers the best accuracy while being the least computational and memory-demanding. 

When path-planning is preferred or even required, gridmap presents a more advantageous solution.

Fleet management

Keep track of your droids

With fleet management, you stay on top of system states such as alerts, KPI-calculations, energy meters, shift management, material track and trace, predictive maintenance, etc.

Fleet management can be PC- or PLC-based.
