AGV Battery Definitive Guide - What benefits can lithium batteries bring to AGVs?

With the development of the network now more and more convenient, warehouses are implementing automated picking goods, then at this time there is a need for AGV (Automated Guided Vehicles) and AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robots). They can better help the warehouse to realize fast and efficient sorting of goods. Then these robots need to use the power supply should be how to deal with it? This article is the AGV battery definitive guide!

What are the types of AGVs and AMRs

What is an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)?

What Is An Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV)​

AGV primarily stands for Automated Guided Vehicle, which is capable of performing all types of repetitive tasks unmanned and is usually used in material handling. It ranges from the traditional type of wire guidance to advanced models based on laser or vision navigation systems, AGVs come in a variety of designs and functions.

What is Autonomous Mobile Robotics (AMR)?

AMR primarily stands for Autonomous Mobile Robots, which can handle work tasks more intelligently than AGVs. They are usually able to navigate autonomously, avoid obstacles, and are often used for more complex tasks and environments. No human interference is required.

What Is Autonomous Mobile Robotics (AMR)​

The main categories of AGVs are:

These different types of AGVs help companies realize different automation services, making the process easier and simpler to follow.

  • CART AGVS
  • TUGGER AGVS
  • FORKLIFT AGVS
  • UNIT-LOAD AGVS
  • HEAVY-HAUL AGVS

The main categories of AMR are:

The main difference with AGVs is that they can automatically recognize products to achieve automatic sorting and picking, making this part free from manual labor.

  • Pick or Place AMR
  • Inventory Management AMR
  • Sorting AMR

What kind of lithium battery should be chosen for different types of AGVs

If your AGV needs uninterrupted use, a high-performance, high-energy-density, high-safety battery is ideal for you. So let’s discuss the advantages and disadvantages of lead-acid batteries, LFP batteries, and NMC batteries, which can better help to select battery packs for AGVs.

Lead Acid Battery

Pros:

Low cost: Lead-acid batteries are one of the lowest-cost batteries on the market, providing the best choice for companies with limited budgets.
Mature technology: lead-acid batteries have a history of more than 100 years after a long period of development, manufacturing, and recycling have been very mature.

Cons:

Weight and size: Lead-acid batteries are large, which means they are bigger and heavier than other batteries.
Maintenance: Lead-acid batteries need to be maintained regularly, even when refilling with water.
Environmental pollution: lead is a heavy metal for the environment, and if it is not recycled correctly, it can be very damaging to the environment.

LFP battery

Pros:

Safety: Lithium iron phosphate batteries do not suffer from thermal runaway or short circuits in use, which is one of the ideal choices for extreme environments.
Long life: at 80% DOC, the cycle life can reach more than 5000 times.
Stable: the internal battery will not be affected by external conditions that affect the efficiency of the battery.
Environmentally friendly: no lead, etc. inside, making it more environmentally friendly.

Cons:

Energy density: LFP batteries have lower energy density compared to NMC batteries.
Cost: LFP batteries are cheaper than other types of lithium batteries when compared to lead-acid batteries which are more expensive.

NMC battery

Pros:

High energy density: NMC battery has high energy density and can store maximum energy under the same weight.
Fast charging efficiency: Supports fast charging, which is an important advantage for AGVs that require uninterrupted operation.
Adaptable: Can match the high energy output requirements of AGVs and AMRs.

Cons:

High cost: NMC batteries are more expensive than both LFP and lead acid batteries.
Thermal stability: may have thermal runaway when used at extreme temperatures.
Environmental impact: It contains heavy metals such as cobalt, which has a certain impact on the environment.

Although lead-acid batteries are mature and low-priced in the long run lead-acid batteries are not the optimal choice, LFP lithium batteries, as one of the world’s most recognized and safest batteries, are one of your ideal choices.

Understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each battery above, I believe you can combine your actual needs to choose a battery pack that meets your own, if you have more questions, you can contact us, and we will provide more authoritative answers for you.

What are the benefits of using lithium batteries in AGVs?

After learning so much about the benefits of lithium batteries then do you know exactly what specific benefits companies can expect from production? Let’s explore the benefits and advantages of lithium batteries in the AGV sector!

    • Increased production: By using lithium batteries, AGVs, and AMRs can significantly increase production without increasing the number of workers or vehicles. Li-ion batteries can maintain a consistent voltage throughout a work shift, which increases overall production.
    • Improve charging efficiency: In AGV charging efficiency determines the transportation efficiency, then a lithium battery can be quickly charged to ensure higher productivity and less downtime. Li-ion batteries are capable of opportunistic charging, which further reduces downtime due to charging.
    • Increased productivity: Lithium Ion batteries ensure that there is no need for downtime to recharge during operation and no need to keep track of the battery’s discharge status. Longer service life and less maintenance reduce replacement costs.
    • Faster processes: Li-ion batteries have a higher energy efficiency, which allows AGVs to run for longer periods after a quick charge, reducing downtime. The higher energy density means that material handling can be done quickly and efficiently.
    • Reduced Maintenance Costs: Li-ion batteries require no water or acid to achieve 0 maintenance and can be recharged even when not fully discharged, without damaging battery life. High durability and maintenance make Li-ion batteries stand out in AGVs.
