Common AGV Applications

AGVs can be used in a wide variety of applications to transport many different types of materials including pallets, rolls, racks, carts, and containers.

AGVs can be used in a wide variety of applications to transport many different types of materials including pallets, rolls, racks, carts, and containers.
Although your exact materials handling application requirements may not be specified below, Axter has the experience and technical understanding to customise any AGV applications.

Raw material handling

AGVs are commonly used to transport raw materials such as paper, steel, rubber, metal, and plastic. This includes transporting materials from receiving to the warehouse, and delivering materials directly to the production lines.

Work-in-progress movement

Work-in-process movement is a very common AGV application and includes the repetitive movement of materials throughout the manufacturing process.

Pallet handling

Pallet handling is an extremely popular application for AGVs as repetitive movement of pallets is very common in manufacturing and distribution facilities.

Finished product handling

Moving finished goods from manufacturing to storage or shipping is the final movement of materials before they are delivered to customers. These movements often require the gentlest material handling because the products are complete and subject to damage from rough handling.

Hazardous Materials Handling

Some material handling are better left to an AGV. The material or product to be carried may be dangerous or the actual operating environment in which the AGV is operating may be harmful (e.g. radioactive, chemicals etc) to an human operator.
