What is AGV?
Types of AGV
- Unit Load Vehicles are AGVs that move goods from one station to another. They handle unit loads, which are goods packaged in standard-sized bags, boxes, or pallets. Upon arrival at the station, the goods are automatically transferred to a storage floor or placement point without the need for manual labor.
- Pallet Trucks (Forklifts) are used for transporting goods on pallets. They lift the goods from one station to another and can safely lift the goods to higher levels. They come in both manually operated and automatically operated versions.
- Driverless Trains (Towing) are used for transporting goods in a train-like manner, similar to pulling cargo containers. This means that the goods are placed on carts with wheels, and then an AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) is used to pull the cargo carts to the designated point.
- Automated Guided Carts (AGC) are like carts in a warehouse that will automatically transport goods to a predetermined path.
