Unitload automated guided vehicles are designed to move loads at high throughput between workstations in a production environment or between the warehouse and production. These automatic guided vehicles carry one, two or four loads at a time and interface with conveyors, stands, end-of-line equipment (palletizers, wrappers, robots) and automatic warehouse equipment (stacker cranes).
One of the most common types of transfer devices on unitload AGVs is the roller conveyor. In this case, handshake sensors are used both onboard and off-board the AGV to communicate with the off-board conveyor system to ensure a smooth transfer of the load.
Unit load AGVs can be equipped with a number of transfer devices to transfer and transport the load:
These transfer mechanisms are configured to carry and transfer pallets (wooden, plastic, slave, packed, unpacked), racks, bins, rolls, containers, unitized loads, etc.
