Jernbro has delivered five AGVs to Volvo Construction Equipment (VCE). Their task is to drive rear axles between different stations and therefore they have a lifting capacity of 3 tonnes. In order to create a good working environment for the assemblers, ergonomics has also been in focus of the production.

The delivery consisted of AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicle) with lifting tables that can load dump trucks, among other things. At VCE, the AGVs are continuously in operation 24 hours a day. At the 60 m long assembly loop, they maintain a continuous speed of down to 0.2 m/min.

Due to their compact and robust solution and that the lifting table and the mounting platform can be raised, lowered and rotated, they offer an ergonomic working situation for the assemblers at VCE.

Since we wanted to test the flow before we delivered the AGVs to VCE, we created a test track in our workshop (see the movie below). Both installation and commissioning, which took place during a weekend so VCE’s production wouldn’t be disrupted, was facilitated by the fact that the AGVs are equipped with a small window.

Volvo Construction Equipment is a leading international manufacturer of construction equipment with 14,000 employees. VCE offers its products and services in construction, mining, agriculture and other industries in 140 countries through its global distribution network.
