Bi-Directional AGV with Kitting Cart

May 6, 2020
Creform has introduced an AGV with kitting cart that present a product kit for a specific assignment or multiple kits for small batch production and manufacturing efficiency.

Creform has introduced the model CA-B50100-BST NSI automated guided vehicle (AGV) with kitting cart that present a product kit for a specific assignment or multiple kits for small batch production and manufacturing efficiency. The model is bi-directional and provides great flexibility for movement along its guidepath as it can travel in both directions and when necessary, rotate in place. The dual drive wheels also give this AGV higher load capacity and the ability to travel laterally.

Both ends of the AGV are guided, as each of the dual drive wheels independently follows the magnetic guidepath. This high level of control reduces the amount of space the AGV requires when routing, especially in turns or space restrictive areas. It can travel at speeds up to 50 m/min. and has an estimated towing capacity of 2,222 lb. (1,000 kg).

The Creform AGV provides for a 50-course programming capability using an HMI screen located at one end of the AGV. This unit includes I/O monitoring, course programming, error messages and error log. It reads floor-mounted RFID tags for position feedback as well as command tapes adjacent to the magnetic tape guidepath.

The cart is designed to hold up to 500 lb. (226 kg) capacity. It features four 4 in. diameter swivel casters with urethane wheels and can be moved manually or with the AGV. The AGV tunnels under the cart from the rear and raises its tow pins. It can then tow the cart to its destination where the pin on the AGV is lowered and the cart is left behind. This cart also features an overhead sign holder to help identify the cart.
