• RAGHAV – The Corona Warrior

    The Coronavirus pandemic is affecting every industry in some way or the other. But the most affected of them all is the Healthcare Industry. Doctors, nurses, helpers are constantly exposed to infected patients and face high risk during the treatments. As of April 2020, around 45+ hospitals were sealed and 2000+ healthcare workers were quarantined. This number is on the rise and with every passing day more and more healthcare workers are getting infected with COVID-19. This made us think, we had always said that our mobile robots can help in medical sector and what better time than this? At Rucha Yantra, we focus on designing user-friendly minimalistic robots which…

  • AGVs in Textile

    Material Handling in manufacturing sector refers to the movement of any kind of material/load within the limits of shop floor or at the most to the transportation vehicles or warehouses. Auto Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are the newest trend in material handling. AGVs are portable robots, which follow a prefixed path for navigation. They can tow the material stored on trailers and trolleys attached behind them or can store the material on the overhead beds for conveyance. They are used to transport loads in a manufacturing facility or a warehouse, where repetitive movement of material is required with little or no human interaction. Now a days, they are deployed in nearly every…

  • SAEVK: Human Guided Vehicle

    We know that Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are portable robots which follow a prefixed path for navigation. They can tow the material stored on trailers and trolleys attached behind them or can store the material on the overhead beds for conveyance. They are used to transport loads in a manufacturing facility or a warehouse, where repetitive movement of material is required with little or no human interaction. Now a days, they are deployed in nearly every industry including automobile, food, pharmaceuticals, textiles and much more, their scope ranging from handling raw materials to finished products. We have plenty of articles about AGVs and their applications in our Knowledge Corner series…

  • AGVs in Healthcare Industry

    Yesterday, one of our engineers came across a short video clip while scrolling through the news. It was that of a robot serving food to the corona virus affected patients in China. He immediately showed this to a few of us colleagues. Such a great concept, such a noble cause! Who would have thought that in this dreadful spell of corona virus scare, robots can come handy this way? The wheels in our heads started spinning. We had always said that AGVs can help in medical sector. In fact, they are being used in hospitals across various countries since as early as 1980s. In today’s topic AGVs in Healthcare, let…

  • RAGHAV in Small Industries

    If you have read our previous articles in the tech blog series, you must know RAGHAV very well by now. For those who haven’t, RAGHAV is our first ever adaptable AGV for material movement. Till now we have seen how various manufacturing industries like Automobile, Pharmaceuticals and Food processing can benefit with RAGHAV. We agree that these are comparatively bigger industries, meaning that the production volumes and capital they can invest, both are higher and hence they prefer to use modern machinery and equipment like AGVs to transport load. What about the small-scale industries? We all know that India being a developing country, majority of our industries are smaller in…

  • RAGHAV in Food Industry

    Hygiene is a very important factor to be considered when it comes to food. None of us prefer to eat at a place where food is not being prepared or served hygienically. It is not just unappetizing; it is also very unhealthy. Same is applied to a food processing industry. Although we cannot see how the food is processed, packaged or stored, we try to go for bigger brands like Chitale Bandhu when it comes to sweets or Amul when it comes to dairy products. This is because we trust that their products will be 100% safe to consume and believe us a lot of effort goes into building this…

  • RAGHAV IN AUTOMOBILE

    We have seen how important a role productivity plays in automobile industry in our previous article, “Productivity in Automobile”. Better productivity is always desirable as it can increase the profit margins for the company by substantial numbers. Similarly, decrease in productivity cannot only cause loss to the company, but the consumers as well. We also saw the various inputs, on which productivity is dependent, material handling being the most delicate one to handle. Improper material handling can have disastrous effects on productivity because of its limited value add. We have always emphasized that autonomous means are the best for all the material handling requirements. In today’s topic, RAGHAV in Automobile,…

  • Automated Guided Vehicles

    All of us are now well acquainted with basics of material handling. We also know that, although manual labor is still prevalent, companies have started turning towards autonomous technics for their obvious advantages. Our previous article “Autonomous Material Handling” was all about the different types of autonomous systems and their implementations in manufacturing industries. We also discussed quite in length, the pros of such advanced systems over the manual ones and their numerous benefits to the companies adopting them. While talking about the autonomous systems, we also touch based upon mobile robots or we call them – AGVs. Let us continue this discussion about Automated Guided Vehicles in details, which…
