AGV Floors and AMR Flooring for Warehouses and Manufacturing
Flooring for Automated Guided Vehicles and Autonomous Mobile Robot areas
The needs for floor surfaces in AGV and AMR areas are numerous. These areas need a flat, level surface, that is not too slick, bumpy, too shiny or soft. Surfaces need to be anti static, or dangerous accumulated charges could damage to sensitive electronic components. Any of these conditions could cause slowdowns, stoppage, accidents or repairs. PumaCRETE® provides a solution to all of these challenges.
TYPES OF FLOOR SURFACES FOR AGV and AMR EQUIPMENT
- Composite (polymer based, resinous) 301-PumaESD by PumaCRETE®
- Concrete flooring
- Metal flooring
In order to manuever AGV and AMR vehicles/equipment, it requires lasers, magnets, sensors (RF or optical), or cameras. Predetermined pathways are designated with visual markers and GPS systems, or by means of magnet tape or embedded wire in the floor.
The floor surface must allow the vehicle to move freely and safely. Common issues that may be challenges for this equipment includes flooring that is:
Uneven, bumpy surfaces risk damaging the AGVs and AMRs. Floor cracks, holes, damaged and spalled, rough concrete, for example, can speed up the wear and tear on wheels and components, increasing maintenance costs and downtime.
If the flooring is too slick, the vehicles may not have the traction required to move efficiently. They require a bit of surface texture (proper coefficient of friction) to ensure the wheels have enough traction to help the robot stay on course and move at designated speeds.
The gloss or sheen of your AGV/AMR flooring can causes issues. A too shiny surface will reflect more light and may confuse laser-guided navigation. Going with a matte finish can save you extra costs down the road.
PumaCRETE 301-PumaESD flooring is a hard, abrasion resistant, composite flooring. It is not soft like VCT, rubber and sheet goods.
