How igus motion plastics keep AGVs moving

Written by: igus | Published:

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are revolutionising warehouses, where everything works automatically, is self-sufficient and, even, self-learning. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but all have one thing in common, they work continuously 24/7.

In this week’s video, we take a look at a generic AGV servicing a warehouse conveyor. It’s especially here where maintenance or downtime can have knock-on effects down the line costing time and money.

Many AGVs can raise or lower their delivery platform; sometimes a few centimetres is enough; here a drylin SLW lifting mechanism works well. For greater distances, iglidur Z scissor lifts will carry heavy loads. An iglidur PRT slewing ring rotates the platform and, for the tipping mechanism, iglidur G plain bearings are perfect.

All igus motion plastics offer the same excellent qualities; they are lightweight, maintenance-free, lubrication-free and, of course, cost-effective.
