Under the background of Industry 4.0, AGV, as an active industry in the current robot industry, has a strong response in various fields. AGV is the abbreviation of Automated Guided Vehicle, which means "automatic guided transport vehicle", sometimes also called "unmanned handling vehicle". How can a small AGV drag hundreds or even thousands of kilograms of heavy objects and achieve millimeter-level precision? This is closely related to the wheel-side drive mode of AGV.
The wheel-side drive of AGV is mainly divided into two structural modes: differential and steering wheel. Today, the editor wants to introduce the application of differential drive wheelset in AGV.
The differential drive wheelset is designed by Dongguan Weitengstan based on the original steering wheelset, with the "cycloid reducer" as the core, integrating the reducer and the drive wheel into one, and connecting the external DC motor to become a highly integrated mechatronic AGV differential drive wheelset component.
Due to the compact structure of the new high-precision micro cycloid reducer, the AGV differential drive wheelset reduces the space occupied by the walking drive wheel in the same size of AGV, increases the battery capacity, and correspondingly increases the endurance of AGV.
Compared with the commonly used AGV differential drive wheelset on the market, the biggest advantage of this product is that it can move in all directions.
In addition, it is integrated with the high-precision micro cycloid reducer, which has the advantages of compact size, high rigidity, and impact resistance, making the structure more compact, simple, greatly reducing the overall axial size, higher reliability, lower maintenance cost, and higher precision.
Moreover, it has a wide range of transmission ratios to choose from, which is very helpful for the control and positioning of AGV, and can accurately reach the predetermined position.
Advantages of the new AGV differential drive wheelset:
1) Reliable and durable: with the "cycloid reducer" as the core, the hub adopts imported brand aluminum alloy and low-pressure casting process. The hub is a whole and has been tested by X-ray. It has good heat dissipation, high strength, and good rigidity, which can maximize the mechanical properties of the material.
2) Quality assurance: industrial-grade quality, all modules are designed and manufactured in a standardized and batch manner, with good consistency; imported polyurethane material is used for encapsulation, which is wear-resistant, shock-absorbing, and noise-reducing.
3) Good stability: the internal roller bearings are intelligently matched with corresponding rolling bearings or advanced self-lubricating bearings according to different loads, and have good performance in stability, reliability, and noise reduction.
4) High operation accuracy: based on the innovative design of the cycloid reducer, it has the characteristics of low noise (noise ≤ 60db) and high precision (transmission loss ≤ 1 arcmin).
5) Convenient installation: simple and convenient installation, low maintenance cost, the design of the small roller adopts a structure that is easy to disassemble and assemble quickly, without the need to remove the entire wheel, and can be quickly disassembled and assembled.
