In July, 2010 The Precision Mechanics and Automation Lab of SHTP R&D Center has begun transferring Technology of the Automated Storage and Retrieval System – AS/RS for The Southern Viet Nam Engine and Agricultural Machinery Company Limited – SVEAM
The AS/RS, with the estimated investment of VND 4.5 billion, would be applied in the KC.03.14/06-10 industrial equipment assembly line and is developed by SHTP R&D Center in 2 years ( Jan. 2009 – Dec. 2010), Dr. Duong Minh Tam, Director of SHTP R&D Center, said.
For Operation, the system will need three robot. One AGV Robot transports materials/ components from out side to the pick-up station, where the second S/R robot can pick-up and push the identified materials/components into encoded cases and on the contrary, take off the required materials/components and bring to the pick-up station. The third RTV robot transports these goods to the assembly line.
The Robots can reach maximum velocity 1.5 meter/second and with 60kg load. These Robots will be communicated through wireless with 433 Mhz and controlled by Enterprise Resource Planning software, which designed by SHTP R&D Center.
The AS/RS nowadays has a wide ly scope of application, not only in supermarkets, e-libraries, underground and ground car-parks but alse in express mail service, pharmaceutical and chemical factories., etc.
