RGV Features and Application
RGV can be easily and automatically connected to other logistics systems, such as loading / unloading platforms, various buffer stations, conveyors, elevators, and robots, etc., to carry materials as planned. In addition, it requires no human operation and runs fast. Therefore, the workload of the warehouse management staff is significantly reduced, the transportation cost can be significantly reduced, and the work efficiency can be improved.
Because RGV is driven by rail, its application is relatively simple. It can be classified and identified in two ways. One is that it can be divided into two types: assembly type RGV and transportation type RGV. It is mainly used for material transportation and workshop assembly. Second, it can be divided into circular orbit and linear reciprocating according to the movement mode. The circular orbit RGV system has high efficiency and can work with multiple cars at the same time. Generally, there is only one RGV for linear reciprocating. The linear reciprocating movement is more efficient than circular RGV The system is relatively low.
Structurally, the RGV is mainly composed of a frame, a driving wheel, a follower wheel, front and rear bumpers, a chain conveyor, a communication system, an electrical system, and various cover plates. Because RGV has a simple structure, strong anti-interference ability to the external environment, wide requirements for operators, strong operating stability, relatively few failures, relatively low overall maintenance costs and high reliability.
Now the mainstream RGV trolley in the market, its carrying capacity is generally around 1.5T, and is generally used in many beam-type shelves, drive-in shelves, automated three-dimensional warehouse. The battery life of a mainstream car is generally more than 8 hours on a single charge, and the time required for charging is generally about 8 hours, which can be completed at night without affecting the working time of the car.
It is also because RGV can only walk on the track. Once the RGV route is determined, it is difficult and costly to modify it. Therefore, the adaptability to the place of use and the self-expansion are relatively poor.
