Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) increase efficiency and reduce costs by helping to automate a manufacturing facility or warehouse. AGVs are mobile robots that follow markers or wires in the floor, or use vision or lasers, to navigate through a facility.
SmartCarts® by Daifuku Webb provide a reliable and cost effective automated guided cart that is ideal for moving products on an assembly line or to transport goods through a warehouse or manufacturing plant. It’s guided by magnetic tape, which allows the user to quickly install or modify the guidepath in as little as a few hours.
Transponder tags can be placed on the floor to indicate locations where SmartCarts® are to perform assigned tasks. Various tasks such as stopping, increasing/decreasing speed, lifting and lowering can be performed at different locations. To modify the guidepath, simply pull up the magnetic tape and reapply it in another location along with any transponder tags. In high traffic areas where magnetic tape could be damaged, a bar magnet strip can be embedded into the floor in place of the magnetic tape.
