Detailed Description for Tug/Tow AGVs

Towing Vehicles were the first type introduced and are still a very popular type today. Towing vehicles can pull a multitude of trailer types and have capacities ranging from 3 tons to 300 tons.

Tow/Tugger AGVs pull non-driven carts that are charged with loads, either manually or automatically with an actuated hitch. These type of automated guided vehicles are the most productive AGVs as they are capable of carrying more goods than any other type. This allows for a considerable increase in capacity and efficiency, especially compared to traditional forklift trucks.

A typical tugger vehicle application consists of a regular loop with predetermined stop locations. Every AGV is assigned a set of consecutive stops where operators can add or remove goods and trailers before releasing the vehicle to its next stop. The list of stops is freely and easily configurable at any time.

Automated Guided Vehicles can be used in a wide variety of applications to transport many different types of material including pallets, rolls, racks, carts, and containers. AGVs excel in applications with the following characteristics:

·         Repetitive movement of materials over a distance

·         Regular delivery of stable loads

·         Medium throughput/volume

·         When on-time delivery is critical and late deliveries are causing inefficiency

·         Operations with at least two shifts

·         Processes where tracking material is important

 

 

  

Benefits of a Tow System:

• The ability to move considerably more loads with multiple trailers than a single fork truck
• Material handling efficiency is planned and predictable
• A well-designed system can operate at a programmed speed to meet production rates and maintain safety
• Localized use of manual for trucks should replace maintenance costs and prolong the life of the equipment
• Increased safety
