Automatically Guided Roll-Over Vehicles for the Advanced Manufacturing Industry
Handling Specialty has developed a solid reputation for delivering safe, intelligent and robust material handling equipment utilized in the assembly, testing, inspection and maintenance of multiple products across many industries.
The automatically guided roll-over vehicle was originally developed to safely and efficiently position large power-gen engines during major overhaul and remanufacturing operations but could be engineered to fit any product which requires the ability to ergonomically position personnel around it.
Engineered to operate automatically by following a predetermined path, these units are fitted with an automatic return-to-start function and guided along the set path through a laser guidance system. These units are capable of side-to-side (crabbing), front-to-back, diagonal and zero-turn motion control.
The PLC-based control system provides customization of operating and safety features. The vehicle is equipped with batteries, a battery charger, a battery meter and protection from an over-discharge module. The battery/charging system features TPPL-type batteries and an onboard, fully automatic electronic battery charger capable of both standard and opportunity charging schemes. Fitted with application-specific tooling, these impressive vehicles can be designed to hold and rotate virtually any product requiring 360-degree accessibility.
Though the automated guided roll-over vehicle is programmed to follow a set path, it is also designed to be manually controlled remotely in order to move the unit off the line for charging or maintenance purposes.
