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:
Green Cubes is a great company, great engineers, great product. That’s been kind of my number one go to [lithium] battery.
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
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.
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.
Green Cubes Technology would be my go-to for lithium applications.
I’ve told my friends at Green Cubes, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I believe in loyalty.
