Creform’s low profile CA-B50100-NSI automated guided vehicle (AGV) provides greater material handling flexibility.

This newest, bidirectional edition to the company’s materials handling AGV systems is controlled remotely via a smart phone, tablet or ProFace Remote HMI. When necessary, it rotates in place. Dual drive wheels give the AGV higher load capacity and a greater ability to travel laterally.

Both ends are guided as each of the dual drive wheels independently follows the magnetic guide path. This high level of control reduces the amount of space the AGV requires when routing, especially in turns or space restrictive areas.

The unit (powered by 24-volt batteries) travels up to 50 m/min. with an estimated towing capacity of 2,222 lb. (1,000 kg). It has an electro-mechanical emergency/parking braking system with a minimum turning radius of 31.5 in. (800 mm), and 11.8 in. (300 mm) – only in the lateral direction travelling at a slow speed.

Creform is a manufacturer of material handling systems based in Greer, SC.
