SAFELOG AGV Projects: The full program

Every production environment and each particular application has special features that have to be taken into account when planning and implementing an intralogistics solution with automated guided vehicles. The preliminary analysis needs to take into account spatial, organizational and technical conditions as well as the size and essential characteristics of the transport systems that are to be used. SAFELOG conducts this preliminary analysis for each project and taking into account all of these factors, we develop a customised solution based on the customer’s particular needs and requirements. This ranges from route guidance and the selection of the appropriate SAFELOG AGV model to the connection of customer-specific software systems.

Analysis & Concept

An honest assessment of whether and how an AGV project can be implemented is second nature to SAFELOG. As a first step, we visit your site and analyze your processes. We advise you on the feasibility of your project and draw up an initial concept as a basis for discussion.

Consultation & Planning

The results of the analysis provide the foundation for the next steps. SAFELOG provides advice with regard to suitable hardware and software as well as the appropriate types of device. The connection of SAFELOG components to existing ERP, production control or warehouse management systems is also taken into account. The goal is a well thought out integrated solution based on your individual needs.

Project planning & implementation

Especially when integrating the automated goods supply into existing processes, we want to avoid long downtimes. SAFELOG manufactures all of the devices quickly and with great precision. The SAFELOG team is on site for the commissioning of the automated guided vehicles and programs their routes. The team sets up the AGV swarm in the operating environment and connects it to existing software systems.

SAFELOG AGV M4 – powerful versatility

We are starting the technical redesign of our AGV portfolio with the SAFELOG AGV M4. The AGV M4 transport robot is based on the predecessor model AGV M3 and is characterised by its agility and versatility. The height has been reduced by 15 percent to 220 mm, this means it can drive under most of the trailers and trolleys available on the market.

Mobile transport robots from SAFELOG – the AGV M4

It can be automatically coupled and uncoupled through a system of lifting bolts and snap latches that is combined with an RFID reader used to identify material supply trolleys. The maximum towing load is 1,500 kg. The standard version of the AGV M4 can handle a top load of 200 kg. The sturdy steel chassis has an IP54 rating so it is protected against dust and water splashes. The newly developed brushless DC motor benefits from a higher starting torque. The AGV M4 is capable of speeds ranging from 0.02 m/s to 1.6 m/s.

With intelligent, agent-based control, the AGV communicates with other AGVs as well as with peripheral systems. Thanks to swarm intelligence, a higher-level control centre is not necessary. However, the required interfaces for a control centre connection, such as VDA 5050, are available.

AGV-SOFTWARE

Several mobile transport robots communicate via WLAN

SAFELOG IntelliAgent –
process control without a control center

With SAFELOG IntelliAgent software, SAFELOG offers a cost-effective and lean solution as a decentralized fleet manager for automated guided vehicles.

In stand-alone applications, SAFELOG AGVs handle transport processes to connect two or more loading and unloading points. The IntelliAgent takes care of the processing of the transport tasks. If several AGVs are used, the devices network over Wi-Fi to create a swarm intelligence. The swarm can include up to 500 individual devices. The AGVs communicate with each other and receive orders through the IntelliAgent software, and the vehicles report their status to the swarm. Route planning and approval for sections of the route or intersections is done through all the devices communicating with each other. The swarm intelligence also monitors the charging of the individual devices to maintain optimal availability. IntelliAgent control software eliminates the need for a central control station and is compatible with other SAFELOG products. A connection to customer-specific PLCs is also possible. The software is 5G compatible.

SAFELOG AGV LIVE App (iPhone & iPad)

With the help of the SAFELOG AGV LIVE app, it is possible to call up the process data from an AGV on a mobile device. After installing the app on a smartphone or tablet, scan the QR code for the AGV to identify the vehicle in the app. Information about the software version and general details about the device, such as the current location or the last RFID tag passed, can then be called up. The app can also generate error messages or service requests. The ticket generated is sent directly to the SAFELOG service team and, if necessary, a spare parts order is triggered. The app is currently available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac.

AGV-ACCESSORIES

Weight plates

To improve traction of the AGVs for pulling heavy loads, such as mobile supply trolleys, it is possible to increase the tare weight of the vehicles. Weight plates of 25 kg each are used for this, they can be mounted on the SAFELOG AGV S2 and SAFELOG AGV M4 models. This increases the weight by 25 kg (AGV S2) or 75 kg (AGV M4).

Charging system

• Inductive charging system from Wiferion (built-in)

The Wiferion etaLINK 3000 is a patented inductive charging system for industrial electric vehicles and mobile robots. Since the systems do not require plug-in or sliding contacts, they enable interim charging of the batteries.

• SAFELOG charging system (built-in)

The energy unit on the AGV is charged during operation by the SAFELOG charging system using sliding contacts. For this purpose, charging contact plates are located in the area where the SAFELOG AGVs operate. These contact plates are wired to a 48V charging station to supply power. When the vehicle passes over and comes to a standstill above the charging contact plate, the energy storage units in the AGVs are charged by the sliding contacts. The charging contact plate has inclined contact surfaces to ensure low-wear connection with the spring-mounted sliding contacts.

• Mobile SAFELOG charging system

For flexible charging of its AGVs, SAFELOG offers a mobile charging station. The charger, which is mounted on rollers, is transported manually and connected to the AGV. Power is supplied by a 230V connector plug. Charging during operation is not possible. Due to its compact design, the mobile SAFELOG charging system can also be used in confined spaces.
