Conveyor System | Inter-process AGV

Taikisha's Technology

What is our conveyor systems?

The conveyor system in the painting factory is an automatic transportation system that is involved in the entire process from receiving the car body from the welding factory, passing through the painting process, and handing over the car body to the assembly factory. Taikisha supports various transportation systems, from the hanger / trolley method that has been used in Japan for a long time to the skid method that is mainly used in Europe. In addition, it can be used not only for automobile bodies but also for painting systems for plastic parts.

What is inter-process AGV?

As a next-generation transfer method, Geico is developing a transfer method using AGV between processes. Up to now conveyor rails were installed between processes, but the next-generation transport methods do not have rails, and the AGVs carry around the car body.

Can provide solutions to these problems

  • Want to lift productivity
  • Want to reduce CO2 and enhance energy efficiency
  • Want to make the best use of limited spaces
  • Want to improve labor environments and achieve automation

Overview

A new concept of movement for automobile body. A separate shuttle will carry the automobile within the area of the painting department. Customers can realize to design plant with a layout that is flexible and easy to change later. It is a highly adaptable booth that can be customized based on the product. This enables a cost-effective concept.

Body + Skid separate Shuttle unit (on storage table)

Features

  • High modularity.

    Does not require fixed equipment like rails and can function with the minimum number of dollies required for the shuttle. The shuttle has lifting, travel, and traverse functions allowing effective use of space.

  • High flexibility: freedom of movement.

  • Easy maintenance - easy cleaning.

  • Use of standard plug-and-play components.

  • Simplicity of layout development.

  • Simplicity of changing the layout in existing systems (brownfield).
