From the perspective of the global market, the growth rate of the robot industry is slowing down this year, and robot manufacturers are facing the challenge of batch delivery of projects. Last year, based on the three main lines of product standardization, stability and project delivery, VisionNav decided to expand production capacity, establish production bases, optimize product core performance, and improve team building, and finally ushered in a wave of delivery peaks this year. Since 2022, VisionNav, with industry-leading delivery capabilities, has successively penetrated into 3PL, machinery manufacturing, grain, oil and food industries, and accelerated its entry into and penetration of other industries in need.
A new benchmark in the field of smart logistics
The customer is a well-known third-party logistics company, providing professional and high-quality supply chain solutions for global leading communication companies. The high-level shelves of the warehouse have a height of more than 7 meters. The customer adopts the VNR14 Reach Truck AGV from VisionNav, based on the leading visual navigation module that integrates functions such as perception, positioning, and control. It can accurately detect the goods’ space and ensure the safe put-away and picking of pallet materials above 7 meters by the autonomous forklift.
At the project site, the VNR14 autonomous forklift is also docked with the AMR to quickly realize the automatic transfer of materials, and improve the collaborative operation efficiency of warehousing and logistics.
Helping factory logistics transformation
The client's main business is the production of automation equipment. The project site involves multiple workshops and inbound and outbound requirements at different warehouse locations. VisionNav is equipped with multiple VNSL series autonomous forklifts and robot control systems to complete multiple processes such as parts transfer between No. 1 and No. 2 workshops, material transfer from semi-finished product warehouse to distribution workshop, and transfer from semi-finished product stations in the workshop. Through the deployment of the robot control system(RCS), the autonomous forklift can seamlessly connect with various automation equipment such as hoists, rolling doors, and conveyor lines. The RCS can also plan the optimal operation path, reduce the waiting time of forklifts, and cooperate with multiple vehicles to effectively improve material handling efficiency by about 30%.
Commodity Goods Industry
Provide flexible warehousing management for customer
The customer is a multinational enterprise with a history of more than 100 years. Its products are exported to more than 100 countries and regions, and its production bases are all over the world. The VisionNav robot control system is connected to the customer's WMS and the AS/RS WCS system respectively to obtain storage location and cargo information and to conduct comprehensive inspection and control of autonomous forklifts, pallets, goods, and equipment. VNMR15 reach truck AGV is connected to the customer's roller line, and simultaneously matches a variety of vehicles to meet the unmanned handling of customers' diverse kinds of goods; The VNR14 reach truck AGV is connected to the high-level beam rack to realize high-level put-away and picking at the height of more than 5 meters.
The customer warehouse has beam racks and drive-in racks. The bottom width of the drive-in rack is 1340mm, and the width of the second hanger is 1050mm. VisionNav configures reach truck AGV to precisely pick up and release goods from the conveyor line and transfer them into the drive-in rack. During the whole process, the unmanned forklift robot control system automatically connects the conveyer line and the one-sided sliding fire door to realize the integrated and coordinated operation of the production equipment.
Packaging and Printing Industry
Improve the utilization of storage space
The customer is a well-known enterprise focusing on green recycling packaging. The project involves warehousing on the first and second floors. VisionNav is equipped with 2 VNSL14 autonomous forklifts to dock with the hoist and the conveyor line. The autonomous forklift completes the material handling task from the auxiliary line to the buffer area through the planned optimal operation path, helping customers to improve the utilization of storage space, and realizing paperless intelligent management of the warehouse.
Home Appliance Industry
Empowering factories with flexible production
The customer is a world-renowned home appliance manufacturer. VisionNav combines different models of autonomous forklifts and the powerful robot control system to complete the flexible material transfer among "workshop transfer – high-speed machine loading – buffer storage of finished bare wires- put away and picking from shelves" for copper wire and enameled wire goods. On the project site, the autonomous forklift can adaptively adjust the forks to accurately pick up the goods; The robot control system can deploy multi-vehicles to work together and seamlessly connects with other automation equipment on site, which truly helps customers reduce manual workload, improve production efficiency, and achieve flexible production.
Auto Parts Industry
Automatic materials handling of non-standard carriers
The customer produces a wide variety of auto parts, including many that need exclusive non-standard carriers. The loading and unloading of auto parts needs to go through multiple assembly processes. VisionNav customizes the Slim series models with wide outriggers according to the special materials on the project; At the same time, VisionNav also provides the customer with a self-developed warehouse management system to open up the project equipment and data information, so that the autonomous forklift can connect with the camera equipment, roller lines, realize refined warehouse management and improve inventory processing rate and accuracy.
Full process automation efficient operation
The customer's main business is all-in-one machines, backplanes, and other electronic equipment. Among them, the backplane is thicker and heavier than the conventional PCB board. There are a variety of carriers with different specifications and materials in the warehouse. The long side of the carrier is as long as 2 meters. The VNT20 Pallet Jack AGV from VisionNav has customized the super-long fork by transforming it to adapt to a variety of carriers on the project site, to dock with elevator equipment and realizing 24&7hour, long-distance cargo transfer and cross-floor operation.
VisionNav will continue to make efforts to continuously innovate product technologies around the needs of more industry customers, help customers achieve factory/warehousing automation, and empower the industry's ecological digital and intelligent transformation and upgrading.
