Under the background of Industry 4.0, AGV, as an active industry in the robot industry, has a strong response and is blooming in various fields. AGV stands for Automated Guided 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 accuracy? This is closely related to the wheel-side drive mode of AGV. The wheel-side drive of AGV is mainly divided into differential drive and steering wheel drive. Today, I want to introduce the application of differential drive wheel group in AGV.
The differential drive wheel group is designed by Dongguan Fubao based on the original steering wheel group, with the "cycloidal reducer" as the core, integrating the reducer and the drive wheel, and connecting with the DC motor to become a highly integrated electromechanical AGV differential drive wheel group component. Due to the compact design of the high-precision miniature cycloidal reducer, the AGV differential drive wheel group reduces the space occupied by the walking drive wheels in the same size of AGV, increases the battery capacity, and correspondingly increases the endurance of AGV.
Compared with the common AGV differential drive wheel group on the market, the biggest advantage of the new product is its ability to move in all directions. In addition, it is integrated with the high-precision miniature cycloidal reducer, which has the advantages of compact structure, high rigidity, impact resistance, etc. It has a smaller overall axial size, higher reliability, lower maintenance cost, and higher accuracy. It also has a wide range of transmission ratios and flexible choices, which is of great help for the control and positioning of AGV vehicles, enabling them to accurately reach the predetermined positions.
What are the differences?
Advantages of the new AGV differential drive wheel group compared with traditional AGV differential drive wheel group:
1) Reliable and durable: With the "cycloidal reducer" as the core, the hub adopts imported brand aluminum alloy and low-pressure casting process. The hub is a whole and has undergone X-ray flaw detection. It has good heat dissipation, high strength, and good rigidity, and is reliable and durable, maximizing the mechanical performance of the materials.
2) Quality assurance: Industrial-grade quality, all modules are designed and manufactured in a standardized and batch manner, with good consistency; using imported polyurethane material for encapsulation, wear-resistant, shock-absorbing, and noise-reducing.
3) Good stability: The internal bearings are intelligently matched with corresponding rolling bearings or advanced self-lubricating bearings according to different loads, showing good performance in stability, reliability, and noise reduction.
4) High operating accuracy: Based on the innovative design of the cycloidal reducer, it has the characteristics of low 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 removing the entire wheel, it can be quickly disassembled and assembled.
