White Paper: Industrial AGVs: Improving Productivity and Space Efficiency with Smart, Compact Electric Actuators

Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can improve industrial productivity by 50 to 70 percent but require adequate room to move about increasingly space-constrained factory floors. The more functionality AGV designers can pack into a small footprint, the greater will be the value to the end-user. Choosing the right actuation technology is critical to that value, and AGV designers are increasingly choosing smart electric actuators when seeking high-performance motion control in a small footprint.

 Download this white paper and learn:

  • How electric actuators compare to other forms of actuation when it comes to cost and digital capability.
  • The importance of space-conscious components when designing factory automation machines such as AGVs.
  • The key role of electric linear actuators in AGVs as they apply to various industries and environments.
