|Advantages of AGV Automatic Guided Vehicles, AMR Autonomous Mobile Robots
Reduces labor expenses-salaries,benefits,bonuses, paid leaves, medical support, insurance,etc.
Quick ROI. Greater availability-efficiency. Low maintenance-energy and up keep costs.
Reducing costs. Add vehicles as need grows. Mixed traffic of AGV and people possible.
Less vehicles needed. Can be prepositioned-routed in advance for operation -reduced cycle time.
Avoids accidents-damages that can be caused by human errors-fatigue-distractions- rash driving.
Increased workplace safety. Controlled speeds, gentle handling-loading-unloading of goods.
Can work with hazardous items, extreme temperatures, move heavy materials effortlessly.
AGVs are tangible assets that can be monetized. Fixed automation systems eg conveyors are inflexible, require careful planning, more installation time, costly to replace once implemented.
Less expensive, low startup time, can easily adapt to change in processes, products, workflows.
With WMS-ERP can help track inventory, reduce inventory costs, order depleting stocks in time.
