AGILOX expands its product portfolio with an clever dolly mover
After AGILOX ONE and AGILOX OCF, now comes AGILOX ODM. The corporate, which makes a speciality of logistics robots, is including an autonomous dolly mover to its vary of clever transport methods managed by swarm intelligence. AGILOX is thus concentrating on a totally new space of software: the transport of small load carriers.
AGILOX is increasing its vary of Autonomous Cellular Robots (AMRs) with the brand new Omnidirectional Dolly Mover AGILOX ODM. Whereas the AGILOX ONE is provided with a scissor elevate and the AGILOX OCF has a free elevate for load dealing with, the AGILOX ODM is constructed on the precept of a dolly mover. This implies it will possibly settle for masses with a most weight of 300 kg to a most lifting top of 250 mm and transport them to their vacation spot. The clever AMR idea with AGILOX X-SWARM know-how thus opens up new areas of software and different business segments as a result of small load carriers (comparable to totes), which the brand new AGILOX ODM is designed to move, are extensively used, particularly within the electronics and pharmaceutical industries.
Particulars of the brand new AGILOX ODM
With the AGILOX ODM, AGILOX has introduced new considering to the idea of Automated Guided Autos: The compact car travels autonomously and navigates freely on the manufacturing ground or within the warehouse, completely making certain the in-house materials move. Similar to AGILOX ONE and AGILOX OCF, AGILOX ODM makes use of an omnidirectional drive idea. This permits it to journey transversely into rack aisles in addition to activate the spot, enabling it to maneuver even within the tightest of areas. The lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) accumulator ensures brief cost occasions and lengthy working cycles.
“AGILOX is a model that has constructed a robust basis with the AGILOX ONE and the AGILOX OCF. With the brand new AGILOX ODM, we stay true to our model DNA whereas concurrently concentrating on the transport of small load carriers to assist our development plan to grow to be the world’s main AMR supplier,” says Georg Kirchmayr, CEO of AGILOX Providers GmbH.
The AGILOX benefit
With the brand new AGILOX ODM, prospects can profit from all some great benefits of similar confirmed X-SWARM know-how as in AGILOX ONE and AGILOX OCF: the distinctive benefits of an (intra-)logistics answer designed from the bottom up.
Since AGILOX AMRs haven’t any want for a central management system and may orient to the present contours with millimeter precision, this eliminates time-consuming and expensive modifications to the present infrastructure. Autonomous route-finding additionally permits the automobiles to keep away from obstacles unaided. If it isn’t doable to get previous the detected impediment due its measurement or the accessible clearance, the AMRs calculate a brand new route inside seconds to succeed in their vacation spot as shortly as doable. For patrons, this implies most freedom of their present processes, as a result of they don’t have to adapt to the Autonomous Cellular Robotic system. As a substitute, the system adapts to the shopper’s processes. Moreover, absolutely autonomous routing ensures a protected workflow – even in blended operations.
Plug & Carry out commissioning of the clever intralogistics options and the absence of a grasp laptop or navigation aids additionally saves AGILOX prospects from doing tedious alteration work upfront. As soon as the logistics robots have been put into operation, they manage themselves in accordance with the (decentralized) precept of swarm intelligence, i.e. they alternate data a number of occasions a second to allow the complete fleet to calculate essentially the most environment friendly route and stop potential deadlocks earlier than these can happen. The client thus advantages from a system that consistently runs easily, with no downtime. Time-consuming coordination of automobiles by the shopper can also be a factor of the previous due to AGILOX X-SWARM know-how. For the shopper, this implies flexibility, as a result of it lets them broaden the automobiles’ space of operation inside just some minutes. It additionally implies that it is vitally simple to relocate an AGILOX AMR for use quickly in different areas of the corporate areas or its subsidiaries. Since AGILOX automobiles may also talk with different machines or the constructing infrastructure via IO packing containers, even rolling doorways or a number of flooring aren’t any drawback for the AMRs. So, this too implies that prospects take pleasure in most flexibility within the group of their manufacturing processes.
One other main benefit comes from blended operation of the AGILOX fleet in a “swarm”. The smaller AGILOX ONE and ODM sequence automobiles can then, for instance, feed the meeting workstations or e-Kanban racks, whereas the AGILOX OCF automobiles transport the pallets. This could simply be executed as a result of AGILOX AMRs all use the identical management and WiFi infrastructure.
