Advanced, Economical, Safe & Efficient Solution

The Automated Guided Vehicle is most commonly known in the industry by its acronym AGV. An AGV is the most advanced, economical, safe and efficient solution for point-to-point indoor material handling. An AGV is an independent load carrier which carries unit loads, bins and trays containing components from one point to another. It travels on a fixed, predetermined, linear or curved path and stops at defined workstation/s for loading or unloading of material. Conventionally, AGVs are powered using battery or regular electric supply through ground cables/busbars and current collector mechanism. They travel on rails laid on the shop floor or on a magnetic strip track. We, at Lawkim Innovation Centre, have successfully developed an advanced version of AGV using our motors and an extremely simplified Route Sensing Arrangement. Lawkim AGVs travel on a painted track. They automatically sense the colour of the paint strip on the shop floor and travel on the marked path. Besides simplicity in operation, this is one of the most flexible and safe material handling systems due to its several inbuilt features.
