Ensure safety compliance and global market access
AGVs (also called automatic guided vehicles) and automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS) have become indispensable for the automated operations within manufacturing, logistics and hospitals. To ensure reliable performance and safety, TÜV SÜD offers a complete portfolio of AGV testing and certification services. Backed by in-depth safety expertise, combined with years of experience in the field of automation and AGVs, TÜV SÜD partners with manufacturers, suppliers, integrators and operators to assess and validate AGV safety compliance. The goal: Easy access to your key markets – whether it is Asia, Europe, or North America.
An AGVS is a floor-based conveyor network with the primary task of transporting materials, both within industrial buildings and across company premises. They consist of the following elements: one or more automated guided vehicles, a master control system, equipment for location determination and position detection, equipment for data transmission, infrastructure, and peripheral equipment.
AGVS help to automate and optimise logistics processes. As they provide continuous service around the clock and can be flexibly assigned for a variety of applications, their contribution to increased efficiency and productivity is significant.
TÜV SÜD is your reliable partner for AGV safety compliance and global market access. Our portfolio covers the required testing of the fundamental functions of an AGV and its control system, irrespective of the technology used. Additionally, our Global Market Access (GMA) experts perform testing and certification services based on applicable standards and regulations in the European, Asian and North American markets.
