AGVs & AMRs - Green Cubes Technology | Lithium-ion Power Systems Manufacturer

AGVs & AMRs

The latest technology revolution in Material Handling is in driverless vehicles and robots that do not require an operator. There are two categories of these new robotics: Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR) and Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV). AGV is a robot which is portable and follows marking lines or wires on the floor, use radio waves, vision cameras, magnets, or lasers for navigation. AMR is a vehicle that uses on-boarded sensors and processors to move materials autonomously without any need of physical guides or any other markers. AMRs can recognize and react to people and other vehicles. They perform all their jobs safely and are not dependent on how busy the surrounding environment. 

Li-ion batteries for AGVs and AMRs can be quite varied and depend on the specific design and requirements of the application. For custom OEM designs an integrated power system can be designed for the specific runtime, size and power requirements of the robot. Green Cubes power solutions offers customized batteries and chargers for robotic applications in industrial and warehouse automation.

In some cases, the vehicle can be very similar to a traditional forklift and a standard Lithium SAFEFlex battery and charger system is appropriate.  If the AGV or AMR is using an existing vehicle platform that previously operated on Lead Acid batteries, our drop-in replacement Lithium SAFEFlex batteries make upgrading from Lead Acid to Lithium-Ion simple. Benefits of Lithium SAFEFLex batteries include:

  • More Durable: Lithium-Ion Batteries are rugged and built to last. They can’t be over-charged because the Battery Management System protects against this type of abuse. Unlike Lead Acid batteries, if they are under-charged or left in a partial state of charge, they will not be damaged.
  • Enhanced Safety: Lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries are safe. LFP is a much safer chemistry than other Lithium-Ion batteries. They produce a fraction of the heat generated by other lithium chemistries, due to their structural stability.
  • Cost Effective and Greater Value: Lithium-Ion batteries offer great savings when you consider the total cost of ownership. Although the upfront cost of Lithium-Ion Battery is higher, zero maintenance, reduced battery replacement, labor, and charging costs all add up to substantial savings.
  • Higher energy density: Lithium-Ion Batteries offer the highest energy density enabling them to store and deliver more energy without taking up as much space or weight. 
  • Longer Battery Life:Depending on the Cell selection, Lithium-Ion Batteries provide 5 to 10 times more cycles than Lead Acid Batteries
  • Improved Uptime: Lithium-Ion Batteries support Fast charging, longer runtimes and opportunity charging minimizing Idle time and maximizing productivity
  • Greater Reliability: Green Cubes batteries are constructed from UL approved components. Voltage, current and temperature are continuously monitored with the help of a Battery Management System. Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry is the saftest chemistry in the Lithium-ion battery category.

Customer Ratings and Reviews

Green Cubes is a great company, great engineers, great product. That’s been kind of my number one go to [lithium] battery.

President, Industrial Power Company

The thing I like about Green Cubes is that they have other lines of business outside of material handling batteries, they have been in the lithium world for a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business

VP, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes [differentiates] on its capability to custom design for things like the hardware, the firmware, and inverters. They also have economies of scale because they make battery systems for things like forklifts.

VP, Powered Cart OEM

I am doing some work with them right now. We’re learning their products, and looking at demos. They have good people. They seem like they know the technology well – they say they’re a technology company. I like that they’ve been in the lithium business a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business.

Sales Manager, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes Technology would be my go-to for lithium applications.

Branch Manager, OEM

I’ve told my friends at Green Cubes, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I believe in loyalty.
