Universal-Use Vehicle Chassis Types
Unlike other suppliers that design different AGVs for specific system applications, Savant employs a standard AGV general-purpose (universal-use) chassis, common to all applications. This allows the same AGV chassis to be used for a wide ranges of applications and reused for different applications.
Specific application needs are addressed with a separate ‘load handling’ attachment fitted to the standard Savant AGV chassis. These attachments include:
- Cart capture mechanism for tunnel-under cart transportation
- Tow hitch for moving strings of trailer, dollies, carts
- Single/multiple roller decks for transferring load to/from floor conveyor,
- Lift platforms allowing pick/drop of loads at floor stands or elevating carts/skids/tubs off floor for transport
- Forks to access pallets/racks at floor or stand levels for transport.
- Special load fixtures with lift, rotate or tilt mechanisms for assembly line operations.
