Shuttle Racking System and Automatic Guided Vehicle ( AGV )
The tight combination use of automatic guided vehicle (AGV) and
shuttle racking system provides customers with completely new
reliable and efficient conveying mode.
Guided by the magnatic tape network on the floor, AGV can deliver
goods to the shuttle with high accuracy and efficiency. Then the
shuttle will put the goods to the designated position in the
racking system automatically.
1. Safe and reliable conveying;
2. Save the inconvenience and solve the problem of complicated
floor level conveying;
3. Easy to operate and maintain;
4. Limited safe speed and clearly marked route.
AGV is often used in workshop and conveying system to automatically
transport many different types of material including pallets,
rolls, racks, carts, and containers.
1) Magnetic Guide Tape AGV - The AGV uses magnetic tape for the
guide path.The AGV is fitted with the appropriate guide sensor to
follow the path of the tape. One major advantage of tape over wired
guidance is that it can be easily removed and relocated if the
course needs to change.A flexible magnetic bar can also be embedded
in the floor like wire but works under the same provision as
magnetic tape and so remains unpowered or passive. Another
advantage of magnetic guide tape is the dual polarity. small pieces
of magnetic tape may be placed to change states of the AGV based on
polarity and sequence of the tags.
2) Lase Target Navigated AGV - The navigation is done by mounting
reflective tape on walls, poles or fixed machines. The AGV carries
a laser transmitter and receiver on a rotating turret. The laser is
transmitted and received by the same sensor.
According to using effects, we propose to use magnetic guide mode
in factory workshop. So laser target navigation, which will be
disturbed in workshop environment, is not recommended by us.
