Scaglia INDEVA® has a worldwide network of subsidiaries and distributors to provide service to its customers in many countries in the world.

Advantages of Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) compared to traditional forklift trucks with operators

 

 

Precise and safe operation

    • AGVs are predictable and, once programmed, their routes remain unchanged.
    • Can operate with no human intervention 24 hours a day if required.
    • No damage to goods, machinery or permanent structures is caused by AGVS.
    • Forklift trucks have a higher risk factor.

Ease of assembly and maintenance

    • No screwdriver required – components use connectors that do not require one.
    • Easy and quick assembly or replacement of parts.

Advanced programming interface

    • Touch panel or PC interface for easy programming.
    • Interfaces with external input/output signals can be introduced.
    • No required initial parameter set-ups due to closed-loop control system.
    • Initial installation is simple as only basic time, language and password details are required.

Stability in turns

    • No deviation or variation due to precise tracking using magnet guide tape and closed loop control system.

Flexibility

    • Conventional materials-handling infrastructures are not required.
    • As the business grows, the number of AGVs can also be easily increased.
    • Updates to software do not require the entire system to be shutdown.
    • Work flow shared efficiently and dynamically between AGVs in use.
    • Reconfiguration of routes is simple to implement when necessary.
    • Traffic management system guaranteed to avoid collision.

Efficient, reliable and flexible transport

    • Just-in-time delivery.
    • No destination errors.
    • More precise inventory management.
    • Elimination of material stocked on the production floor.

INDEVA AGVs are highly reliable and, in the case of a failure of a part within the AGV, standardisation of critical parts within it enable easy diagnosis and quick replacement of parts. Indeva AGVs are composed of standard basic modules that can be easily combined in different ways to shape the AGV according to the requirements of each application.
