AGV Casters

Caster Wheels Designed for AGVs to Improve Efficiency and Precision Movement

Caster Concepts has caster wheels designed to extend battery runtime (50% longer) and reduce motor torque and wear on AGVs. These casters also allow for more precise movement while reducing friction, binding, and scrubbing, allowing AGVs to track accurately and move heavier loads without needing larger drive systems.

Solutions to Extend Battery Life

Our ergonomic casters mean less scrubbing and sliding when a caster is moving. With less energy required to move and maneuver the AGV, there is less drain on the AGV’s battery for extended life and less strain on drive train components.

AGV casters also benefit motorized applications due to their easy rollability, making maneuvering into tighter spaces much easier and with much less effort.

Solutions to Extend Battery Life Include:

▪ Swivel on Swivel
▪ Twergo®

Solutions to Help AGVs Track Properly

When casters aren’t tracking properly, they can take the AGV offline and fault the system out.

Our Swivel-on-Swivel (SoS) Technology provides AGVs with tighter tracking and increased accuracy for fewer faults. Vibration can interfere with the AGV’s ability to track its position, which means it will not be able to navigate effectively. Caster Concepts has a variety of shock-absorbing casters that reduce vibration, providing more stability to the AGV and allowing it to maintain its position with more accuracy.

Solutions to Reduce Battery/AGV Size

While there are ways to reduce the motor size, either by changing gear ratios or using brushless DC motors, one very cost-effective way is by using the right caster.

When AGVs are easier to move, they can use a smaller motor to move around, which means a smaller footprint and cost savings because of utilizing a smaller battery. The ability to utilize a smaller motor has many benefits, including greater flexibility in package sizing. This also provides greater design flexibility. Tracking is easier also, so a larger motor isn’t required to compete with the casters to keep the AGV tracking correctly.
