To ensure that Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) always stop purposefully on their way through factory halls and do not cause any damage to material or even injure people, reliable and accurately operating safety brakes are indispensable. Mayr power transmission offers a wide range of products for exactly this purpose, as in addition to the ground-level battery-powered traction drive, it is also necessary to safeguard the movements of e.g. robotic superstructures or hoisting devices. The brakes used in AGVs have to be compact, but must also feature high performance density, wear resistance and, if necessary, networkability. A summary of all tasks, application areas and the specific requirements on the braking system, e.g. arising from standards and guidelines, can be found as a free online seminar on www.mayr.com/en/service/webinar-recordings.
