Logistics handling system + handling robot AGV forklift
With the gradual development of factory automation and computer integrated manufacturing system technology, as well as the extensive application of flexible manufacturing system and automated three-dimensional warehouse, AGV handling robot, as a necessary means of automatic handling, its application scope and technical level have been developed rapidly.
AGV robot is mainly used for automatic logistics transportation. It can automatically transport goods to a designated place through special landmark navigation. The most common guidance methods are magnetic strip guidance, laser guidance, magnetic nail navigation and inertial navigation.
Application scope of AGV handling robot
Manufacturing industry: the AGV handling robots on the market are mainly used in the material handling of manufacturing industry, and multiple AGVs can form a flexible logistics handling system. The handling route can be adjusted in time with the adjustment of production process, so that one production line can produce more than ten kinds of products, greatly improving the flexibility of production and the competitiveness of enterprises.
AGV as a basic handling tool, AGV is widely used in many industries, such as mechanical processing, home appliance production, microelectronics manufacturing, cigarette and so on.
Special industry: Based on the automatic driving of AGV in military, it integrates other detection and dismantling equipment, can be used for battlefield demining and position reconnaissance, and has the ability of mine detection, destruction and route verification.
In the iron and steel plant, AGV robot is used to transport the burden, which reduces the labor intensity of workers. In nuclear power plants and places where nuclear radiation is used for preservation and storage, AGV is used for transportation of goods to avoid dangerous radiation. In film and film warehouse, AGV can transport materials and semi-finished products accurately and reliably in dark environment.
Catering service industry: in the future, AGV cars in the service industry are also expected to show their skills.
Food, medicine and pharmaceutical industry: the application of AGV is also valued in the pharmaceutical, food, chemical and other industries with special requirements of cleaning, safety and no emission pollution.
Classification by use structure
Unmanned carrier: it is mainly used to complete the handling operation. It uses manual or automatic transfer device to load and guide the goods onto the trolley. After the trolley moves to the designated place, the manual or automatic transfer device unloads the goods to complete the handling task. Under the command of the control system, the trolley with automatic transfer device can automatically complete the whole process of goods taking, releasing and horizontal operation, while the trolley without transfer device can only realize the automatic operation in horizontal direction, and the goods taking and releasing operation needs to be completed by manpower or other loading and unloading equipment.
Unmanned traction car: the main function is to automatically pull the flat car for transferring goods, and only provide traction power. When the traction trolley drives the flat truck to the destination, it will automatically separate from the flat truck.
Unmanned forklift: similar to mechanical forklift, but all actions are automatically controlled by the control system to automatically complete all kinds of handling tasks
Next, from the perspective of how to introduce AGV intelligent handling robot, this paper will use some problems to briefly explain where the enterprise should go.
Is it worth introducing AGV intelligent handling robot
High load logistics work
It is worth introducing AGV intelligent handling robot
Friends who have known AGV intelligent handling robot will know that the handling efficiency of a single robot will not be higher than that of an artificial robot, at most the same. The important advantage of AGV intelligent handling robot is that the robot does not need fatigue and rest. It can improve the overall work efficiency of every day by extending the working time. And the logistics robot can guarantee the quality of work at any time. It is a super porter.
Generally speaking, the production plan of an enterprise can be divided into single shift production, double shift production and three shift production according to the time.
The production pressure of single shift production enterprises is relatively small, and the requirement of logistics transportation quantity is not high. The number of labor specialized in transportation in enterprises is very small, and even the enterprises do not have full-time logistics transportation personnel, all of which are "part-time personnel" (one person does several things at the same time). Generally speaking, the investment return ratio of these enterprises to introduce AGV intelligent transportation robot is not very good. In other words, from the perspective of efficiency, it is not worth introducing AGV intelligent transportation robot, and it is more cost-effective to use artificial.
For enterprises with two or three shifts of production, the production schedule will be very full, and the work of production logistics transportation will be heavy. There are special labor engaged in logistics transportation, and the number of labor is not very small. Able to effectively handle the logistics tasks. Especially at night, it can effectively reduce the problem of delivery error and late delivery caused by fatigue. This kind of enterprise is worth introducing AGV intelligent handling robot.
From the efficiency point of view: there are many employees specialized in logistics and multi shift production enterprises are more suitable to introduce AGV intelligent handling robot.
Bad environment is worth introducing
AGV intelligent handling robot
For example, the curing workshop of tire production keeps high temperature all the year round, the temperature in summer can reach 40-50 ℃, and a large number of toxic and harmful gases such as sulfur are dispersed in the workshop. There are also spraying workshop, electroplating workshop, casting workshop, etc., either the environment temperature is particularly high, or the environment contains a lot of toxic and harmful gases. The workers in this workshop are difficult to recruit, have strong mobility, and are prone to accidents and occupational diseases.
In these workshops, the handling workload may not be very large, and the production shift is not multi shift production, but enterprises can effectively reduce the incidence of safety accidents of employees and reduce the loss of enterprises by introducing AGV intelligent handling robot.
Therefore, it is worth introducing AGV intelligent handling robot to replace artificial work in the harsh production environment.
Dangerous process is worth introducing
AGV intelligent handling robot
Hazardous environment includes many situations, such as civil explosive production, a large number of heavy-duty forklift operation environment, etc. It also includes some special stations. In the dangerous environment, safety production will be put in the first place. In case of any abnormal situation, it is the first thing to ensure the safety of personnel. Therefore, in this type of enterprise, reducing the number of employees is the top priority. Return on investment is not the first consideration.
Therefore, it is worth to introduce AGV intelligent handling robot into the dangerous environment or work station which is prone to industrial accidents.
There are many times when enterprises introduce robots not only to solve the production problems of enterprises, but also to improve the overall image of enterprises through the introduction of robots. There is also a part of enterprises that must introduce robot products when receiving the response from customers. Of course, there are other situations. These situations can not be called worth or not, mainly depends on the decision of the enterprise itself.
