Lightweight And Flexible Tugger

Description

The Creform Tugger AGV features a heavy-duty steel base and a top structure built with rigid 28 mm Creform pipe and metal components for a lightweight and flexible style.

 

The hitch is directly on the base and can handle the rigors of industrial towing: the AGV is able to tow two carts. Additionally, there is a utility load deck for miscellaneous boxes / supplies that can ride with the tugger. The frame is easily adjusted for height specifications along with basic tools to match the height of the trailer tongue.

 

The lightweight and flexible style of this tugger comes in handy as the frame is designed so that the unit can be easily and safely lifted for maintenance with a forklift. The AGV tugger also features a convenient handle for manual movement. 

 

The tugger follows a peel and stick magnetic tape guidepath that is easily and quickly installed and changed depending on the need.  It follows a 1000 ft. path with a long single run and a loop at either end to reverse direction. An embedded guidepath is available for high traffic areas: there are RFID tags embedded in the floor that can provide unique routing decisions and initiate other functions such as speed and obstacle sensor view changes.

 

The AGV unit features a Category 3 safety system with safety equipment that includes an audible warning device, flashing light, no-contact obstacle sensor (Laser Scanner) and E-stops.  A unique feature to the system is an application specific countdown alarm.  If the AGV is stopped or otherwise delayed for more than 30 seconds, an alarm sounds to get the attention of nearby associates.
