In manufacturing environments, the efficient handling and movement of materials are critical from arrival to storage and eventual use on the assembly line. Automakers, dealing with a vast array of parts in various sizes and makes, must ensure minimal unnecessary movements during production to prevent issues like misplacement, mishandling, loss, damage, or misapplication. Embracing a flexible and autonomous material handling process with AGVs docking diversified carriers is key. VisionNav has successfully deployed its AGV fleet in an auto parts company, significantly enhancing stability and flexibility in the process.
- On-site carriers have specifications, including non-standard iron cages measuring 1200*1400*1500mm and wooden pallets measuring 900*900*1100mm.
- The autonomous forklift VNSL14 must navigate through multiple automatic rolling doors.
- On-site planning involves finished goods warehouse, raw materials warehouse, and production workshop areas, each with multiple loading and unloading points.
VNSL14 Pallet Stacker AGV + RCS 2.0
VisionNav's Robot Control System (RCS) 2.0 seamlessly integrates with the customer's upper-level system. It intelligently dispatches autonomous forklifts based on task instructions to designated loading and unloading points across multiple areas, optimizing internal material turnover efficiency. After completing material transfers, VNSL14 automatically synchronizes and updates material dynamics on the system, elevating warehouse management intelligence.
Adaptable Material Handling
VisionNav VNSL14 efficiently handles two types of goods—raw materials and finished products. Equipped with high-precision sensing technology, it identifies wooden pallets and non-standard material cages, enabling precise and adaptive handling.
Navigating Complex Environments
During material transfers, VNSL14 seamlessly passes through automatic rolling shutter doors, overcoming challenges in environments with human and vehicle traffic. Its multi-layered safety and obstacle avoidance design ensures flexibility in adapting to complex surroundings, prioritizing the safety of people, vehicles, and goods.
VisionNav's autonomous forklift is making substantial strides across diverse industries, including automotive parts, food, third-party logistics (3PL), petrochemicals, non-ferrous metals, precision manufacturing, and more. This underscores its extensive applicability. The ongoing trend towards standardization and scalability in project implementation and delivery reflects VisionNav's commitment to build accessible and reliable robotic solutions, creating integrated relationships between humans and robotics.
