Automatic Guided Vehicle/Compact Load Transporter.

Featured Product from Savant Automation, Inc.


Savant Automation's DC-20L Automatic Guided Vehicle is a compact load transporter. The AGV/AGC can be provided with various configurations to suit most any application.

It features 7,000 Pounds Standard Capacity and utilizes a Virtual Path™ 'Tape-free/Target-free' Navigation

Drive Under 'Tunnel' Cart Transportation: The DC-20L has an extremely low profile allowing it to drive under pre-positioned carts. This is ideal for cart transportation where the loads on their own carts and in applications where carts need to be picked up and dropped off automatically.

Material Transportation:

The DC-20L is suitable for many material transportation applications, including use in manufacturing, distribution, commercial, hospitals, clean rooms, etc. It can be configured with powered roller deck, powered lift/lower deck, utilized for towing strings of carts and can integrate with other automated system processes.

The vehicle can be used for material movement between work cells, from palletizer to stretch wrap, from packaging to shipping, from receiving to storage, and as a work in process transporter. It can transport racks, pallets, roll stock, slip sheets, trays, totes, carts, Gaylord containers as well as fixtured assemblies. This highly maneuverable AGV can safely travel in high traffic and in space-restricted areas.

Assembly Lines:

When used for assembly line systems, the DC-20L can transport a workpiece through a multi-step assembly process. Assembly operations take place directly on the DC-20L which would be equipped with the desired mobile work table platform that can also be designed to elevate workpieces for best ergonomic working levels. The control system can be integrated with a user's production control system to insure the AGV is released from a work station only when the required operations are completed.

The DC-20L utilizes the state-of-the-art

Savant Virtual Pathรค navigation employing a solid state inertial sensor to compare AGV heading and positional information to a CAD route map in the vehicle's memory. This is ideal for environments where magnetic/optic floor tape or laser reflective wall targets are not desirable or practical.

System Control:

The AGV control system can operate independently, be integrated with a user's IT network or interface with PLC networks and other control systems. Remote AGV call & dispatch can be provided via cart sensors, local call devices and cart RFID tags.

The DC-20L is also available with Savant Automation's revolutionary

iQ-CANTM system controls. iQ-CAN (intelligent Quick Configurable AutomatioN) utilizes a standard PC program that permits quick, easy system design, and allows users to easily make changes to their own systems.
