Creform has developed a single-direction AGV with conveyor deck that essentially acts as transfer vehicles between workstations. The AGV works two eight hour shifts per day, and helps an automotive parts manufacturer transfer parts from its sub-assembly line to the main assembly line.

The single direction AGV travels in a loop with two stops. At the unload station, the powered conveyor will move the product off the powered conveyor deck to a floor-side conveyor.

A manual mechanical gate drops down for load transfers with line side decking. This mechanism ensures loads are held securely aboard the AGV during travel.

The AGV is PLC controlled with HMI touch screen and provides for 50 course 128 command control, programming. Floor positioned RFID tags are used for command initiation and to mark the stop positions along the course with a unique address. Aisle crossings are metered by a wireless system controller as well as other custom functions. If needed, a powered engage/disengage foot lever allows the cart to be moved easily if taken offline. Once disengaged, the unit works like a typical pushcart.

The AGV is a model HA-A50060 single-direction AGV drive unit with 90° and 180° spin/turn capability.
