New AGV Carts
Creform Corporation (Greer, SC) has designed and built a series of AGV carts to meet the needs of an automotive manufacturer for safely moving unpackaged parts and components. At the heart of the vehicles are Creform AGV split drive, bi-directional, bolt on drive units, with each end following a magnetic tape guidepath independently for accurate and repeatable tracking in space restricted areas, explains the company. The drives are powered by two 12V AGM batteries and respond to floor positioned RFID tags for speed control and obstacle sensor views. An optical communication control system between the drives and stationary devices controls an opportunity charging station and powered conveyor load/unload transfers.
