AGVs and Humans – Something in Common?

AGVs (Automated or Automatic Guided Vehicles) and humans have something in common – autonomy. Each is required to sense things in their environment and then modify their behavior based on the surrounding inputs received.

For humans, data processing is accomplished via the brain through our senses. AGVs typically follow markers or wires in the floor, or use vision, magnets, or lasers for navigation.

Automated Guided Vehicles can be used in a wide variety of applications to transport many different types of material, including pallets, rolls, racks, carts, and containers. Alba created an AGV Dual Pick-Up Station. Its purpose: to convey and stage two (2) individual slip sheet loads. The unit is designed to convey two (2) loads at a time onto a two-position AGV unit. The rate required is 30 loads per hour.

Utilizing our pre-engineered products, our Frame-to-Frame Transfer (AGV Dual Pick-Up Station) was an ideal application to use in tandem with the end user’s AGV system. The application possessed the following characteristics:

Repetitive movement of materials over a distance;
Regular delivery of stable loads;
Medium throughput/volume;
On-time delivery is critical and late deliveries cause inefficiency;
Processes where tracking material is important; and
Increasing team member safety by reducing the amount of fork-truck traffic.
