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.
