AGV’s or Automatically Guided Vehicles are being used in operations all over the world to improve safety, reduce operating costs and improve operational efficiencies.

They operate on a fixed path and can be used in a variety of applications:

  • Transport Small Loads (examples could be parts delivery in manufacturing, laundry or food service delivery in hospitals, mail or files in offices)
  • Transport Unit Loads (examples could be pallets, large containers, or roll handling) – can be equipped with conveyor surface or fork truck style AGV’s)
  • Tuggers (examples could be drive units to pull carts or trailers forming a train like system)
  • Custom Applications (examples could be flexible manufacturing or assembly line transport / indexing)

AGV’s can be equipped for a variety of loads and applications. There are various navigation and guidance systems (wire-guided, recessed magnetic bars, magnetic tape, visual recognition or laser guided) each with its own advantages and disadvantages. As with other material handling applications, one size does not fit all. Since each application requires many factors to be taken into consideration, Hy-Tek can help determine if an AGV is the right solution for your business.
