AGV Responds to Logistics Needs



Comau offers the Agile1500, an innovative automated guided vehicle (AGV) platform that is flexible enough to be deployed across a wide range of manufacturing and non-manufacturing scenarios.

Modular, scalable and completely re-configurable, Agile1500 can carry up to 1,500 kg with a maximum speed of 1.7 m/s. Due to these characteristics, the new AGV can facilitate core operations including just-in-time and just-in-sequence production, as well as optimized logistics flows inside the factory, improved warehouse management and better overall production efficiency.

Agile1500 can increase overall plant safety due to advanced security features and an integrated laser scanner that stops the AGV upon detection of an obstacle along its route.

Agile1500 is also highly configurable and can be fitted with different accessories to suit specific applications. For this reason, the versatility of Agile1500 can easily accommodate diverse manufacturing needs and factory layouts. Agile1500 works with multiple navigation systems that use both natural landmarks (walls, objects, etc.) as well as predefined points (magnetic spot and magnetic tape).

Key benefits include:

  • Compact design with on-the-spot rotation capabilities
  • System management software handles transport orders, allocates vehicles and monitors the entire AGV fleet
  • Easily interface with other automation systems in the factory.
