SAFETY

Driverless but still safe

Extensive safety sensors protect man, machine and load. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) only travel on routes assigned to them. Nevertheless, there may be situations in which an employee inadvertently crosses the route. In this case, the extensive CE-certified safety system will initiate immediate braking. A key component of the system is the personal protection sensors – equipped with a warning and a protection field – which permanently monitor the direct routes of the AGV. If a person enters the warning field, the truck immediately slows down. If the person remains standing, it stops, while a signal is transmitted to the control center indicating the blocking of the truck.

AGV - Transport More with Safety

Security was a priority during the development of our Automated Guided Vehicle Systems. That is why the automated vehicles are fitted with comprehensive sensor technology that protect man, machine and load. Therefore our AGVs are also ideally suited for mixed operation.

Safety despite speed

All AGVs are generally fitted with a personal protection scanner in driving direction. Depending on the truck’s speed, the field lengths of the safety area are adjusted. This means the faster the truck moves, the more its warning and protection fields are increased and their surroundings are more proactively scanned.

Safety despite driving direction

The Automated Guided Vehicles also detect objects that may be located on the sides of the truck along its path. The side-mounted laser scanners allow for these objects to be detected in advance. In addition, they serve as an additional feature when cornering. The sensors identify objects that could touch the outside of the truck while cornering. If this is the case, they ensure a contactless stop of the truck.

Safety Plus / on top

Additional safety is provided with the sensor curtain. The purpose of the sensor curtain is to detect objects above and below the detection level of the personal protection sensor and to avoid a collision with these objects. For example, it can detect pallets and loads that are protruding too far out of the racking. The sensor curtain does not only operate when travelling straight ahead, it also “looks” ahead into the curve.

SIMPLE SYSTEM INTEGRATION

No need for reconstruction of your warehouse

The introduction of an Automated Guided Vehicle normally requires a high level of preparation on the customer side and is often accompanied by disruptions of the production. In order to avoid this, our AGVs are prepared for their specific application and thoroughly tested regarding their hardware and software prior to their delivery. Therefore, the degree of adaptation during the “hot phase” and possible standstill periods in your warehousing and production area are reduced to a minimum.
On site, the AGVs are easily connected with the customer’s host system by using the award-winning Jungheinich Logistics Interface. This inhouse developed middleware is a so-called plug-in and has already been successfully implemented at over 100 customer plants. Thanks to this high-quality, standardized hardware and software we are able to realize the implementation of your AGV efficiently, while saving resources.

Through the laser-guided route guidance you can optimize your transport routes and relieve your employees, while increasing efficiency and reliability around the clock. The simple integration into the existing infrastructure allows for flexible use of the AGV models. See for yourself and check out our AGVs in action.

Jungheinrich – Everything from one source

Regardless of the current phase in our joint project – if planning or realization – Jungheinrich is right by your side if you need assistance. The implementation of the AGVs is ensured by specialists on site.

We will find the best transport routes, the most efficient strategies and the optimal number of Automated Guided Vehicles. As a special feature, you can experience the application of AGV in your warehouse in real time via a 3D simulation.

3. Realization

Regardless of the current phase in our joint project – if planning or realization – Jungheinrich is right by your side if you need assistance.

 

The implementation of the AGV system is ensured by specialists on site. Their tasks include the assembly of the reflectors, the final definition of travel routes and the check of the interfaces to the storage periphery (e. g. fire protection door, conveyor systems etc.) as well as the training of your employees.

 

This ensures that your AGV system is installed within the shortest time possible and with a minimum of disruptions during your operating hours.

4. Services and support

Our specialists at the central support are familiar with your system and are available when required. Most of the time service issues can be solved via remote control. If necessary, a local after sales technician is sent to you by our support employee for service on site – every day around the clock.
