AGV guided by magnetic strip

AGV guided by magnetic tape

An automated guided vehicle guided by magnetic tape is an autonomous robot that moves along a predetermined path using various technologies. The AGV follows a magnetic tape stuck on the floor. The spot marker stuck along the magnetic tape gives the instruction to the AGV (turn R/L, stop, speed..)

It is dedicated to the automation and optimization of various flows and is commonly used to transport goods, raw materials, pallets, or any other item for industrial or logistic applications. It interacts and collaborates with workers to lighten repetitive tasks.

Benefits of AGV guided by magnetic tape

Automated Guided Vehicles guided by magnetic tape offer several benefits, including:

Accuracy: AGVs guided by magnetic tape are highly accurate in terms of positioning and guidance. The magnetic tape provides a precise path for the AGV to follow, which ensures that the vehicle stays on track and reaches its destination without any deviation.

Reliability: AGVs guided by magnetic tape are highly reliable, as the magnetic tape provides a clear and consistent path for the vehicle to follow. This ensures that the AGV can operate continuously without any interruptions, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.

Safety: Magnetic tape guidance systems offer an additional layer of safety, as they can be designed to include safety zones or slow-down zones. This ensures that the AGV will slow down or stop when it approaches a hazard or obstacle, reducing the risk of accidents.

Maximum transportable weight: AGVs guided by magnetic tape are capable of transporting heavy loads with ease and efficiency. The magnetic tape provides a precise path for the AGV to follow, which ensures that the vehicle can carry heavy loads without any deviation or loss of control. This makes AGVs guided by magnetic tape an ideal solution for material handling applications that require the transportation of heavy loads over long distances, such as in manufacturing facilities, distribution centers, and warehouses.

Cost-effectiveness: AGVs guided by magnetic tape are often more cost-effective than other types of AGVs, as magnetic tape is a relatively low-cost technology. Additionally, AGVs guided by magnetic tape require less maintenance compared to other types of guidance systems, further reducing the overall cost of ownership.
