AGV: electric linear actuators for automated guided vehicles
Electric linear actuators are linear motion technologies for several production areas, and they are used also by AGVs (or Automated Guided Vehicles), especially in automotive, logistics and breeding/zootechnics.
AGVs allow the movement of products inside the plant and, due to the possibility of expanding and lifting thanks to electric linear actuators, they are characterized by efficiency, flexibility, force and resistance.
Applications examples performed by MecVel electric linear actuators:
• Mobile robots for breeding/zootechnics (for the distribution of forage): control of AGV steering and direction, vertical positioning of the platform for the material loading/unloading
• Mobile robots for the industry, with a focus on automotive and logistic fields: expansion and lifting of the AGV according to the kind of product to be moved inside the plant.
So, in addition to breeding/zootechnics, electric linear actuators can be involved in automotive, logistics and wherever there are large assembly lines.
One of the main purposes is the optimization of warehouses, that assume a dynamic role thanks to AGVs, as they are automatic, safe and fast systems for storing, moving, picking, loading and unloading products.
MecVel electric linear actuators are innovative technological solutions for linear motion, ensuring a clear and precise movement.
That’s why they are suitable for different industrial automation areas, such as mobile robots, increasingly used from assembly lines to the most modern breeding systems and production plants, that require smart and eco-friendly AGVs.
