Daifuku now offers its U.S. customers a part monitoring program for new Daifuku-branded or Daifuku-controlled automated equipment, including automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), conveyor, sorting transfer vehicles (STVs) configured as shuttles, and automatic guided vehicles (AGVs). DAGUARD (pronounced "day-guard") is a software program that monitors the life of equipment parts based on cycles and time in use. The system, which is a preventative maintenance solution with predictive maintenance functions, is programmed to notify users when it's time to maintain or replace system parts.
DAGUARD is a Web-based system with four modules: Maintenance & Inspection, Part Life Expectancy, Diagnostics, and Maintenance Support. The software forecasts the deterioration of parts and components using a statistical method and experimental rules that have been established within the material handling industry over time. DAGUARD users can view real-time information about operation cycles, hours in use, and travel distances.
