AIT’s automated guided vehicles are equipped with a multiwheel design with all-wheel synchronized steering. The transporters can also function in tandem mode.

Xi’an Aircraft International Corp. selected Advanced Integration Technology (AIT) to design, develop, and build two automated guided vehicle (AGV) systems for use at its facility in Tianjin Xingang, China. These AGVs will be used primarily to transport aircraft fixtures into and out of an autoclave as well as for general use around the factory. Working as a single or in tandem, the AGVs can operate in either auto-guidance or manual mode. They are also equipped with a hydraulic lifting system for a controlled, level lift of fixtures and wing molds. Additionally, a guidance system will be used in the autoclave to ensure precise placement and movement reliability at all times.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
