PullBuddy Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) was uniquely designed by a highly skilled team of engineers who have installed thousands of automated systems. The team used its many decades of experience to create one of the most robust and cost-effective AGVs on the market.
PullBuddy moves loads up to 2,000 pounds at 200 feet per minute (FPM). The vehicle uses magnetic tape and sophisticated open source software and controls to reliably guide the vehicle in warehouses, plants and distribution facilities. AGVs (Automatic Guided Vehicles) provide superior flexibility over conveyors and other equipment because their paths can be easily changed. Also, they are scalable allowing production to quickly and easily increase by simply adding additional vehicles without costly changes to infrastructure.
PullBuddy is less than 11 inches in height, which allows it to tunnel under nearly any customized carrier. An automatic pin pops up to engage and deliver a carrier to its destination. The vehicle then lowers the pin to move onto to its next mission. The PullBuddy can run 24/7 via an opportunity charging system, which allows the vehicle’s battery to quickly and conveniently charge several times during a shift at stations strategically set up along its path.
PullBuddy AGV has a limitless number of digital interfaces to accommodate other technologies, including scissor lifts, conveyors and pick-and-go buttons. The modular vehicle can be used in nearly any application from assembly to warehouse delivery. RGGI is exploring other application possibilities for PullBuddy.
