This tutorial will teach AnyLogic users to create material handling models with the help of the Material Handling Library and Process Modeling Library. We will show you how to model a lead acid batteries production line utilizing conveyors, industrial cranes, and AGVs that move both along guiding lines or in free space.

Short summary of the tutorial

  • Phase 1. Pasting of the electrodes and collecting them into batches.
  • Phase 2. Transferring the batches to the drying chambers by the forklifts moving in free space.
  • Phase 3. Wrapping of electrodes in the special envelopes and assembling electrode groups.
  • Phase 4. Assembling the battery by placing the electrode groups inside the case with the help of an industrial crane.
  • Phase 5. Adding caps and terminals to the battery, checking the battery for leakage, and filling the battery with electrolyte.
  • Phase 6. Delivering the batteries to the charging location by the path-guided forklifts.
  • Phase 7. Creating a custom block to diversify the manufacturing process for anodes and cathodes.
  • Phase 8. Modeling the process of electrode production from sheets of metal with the help of the Fluid Library.
