Automated Guided Vehicles or AGV Systems have become today an indispensable form of automation in the industry. The internal logistics will be boosted by the use of these machines:
- safety increase
- reduction of monthly costs (manpower, forklift, ...)
- efficient factory traffic
AVT Europe has a large experience in building 'tailored' AGV applications ranging from lightweight transport systems to the handling of the heaviest loads.

BUSINESS CASE: P80 solid rocket booster VEGA
This automated guided vehicle on air cushions for moving 130T pallets, carries a mould for a rocket fuel tank for the Ariane project. The AGV is capable of longitudinal driving, transversal driving and turning at the spot. The air cushion transporter can be operated in manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic mode. It is guided by magnets in the floor, laser distance sensors for fine positioning and microwave tags of identification of the 'action points' in the trajectories. The radio controlled system is telescopic extendable in lenght to accomodate different load sizes.
