TIME-OF-FLIGHT CAMERA FOR AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGY

3D view of intralogistics processes 

A 3D camera expands the options offered by sensor systems in intralogistics by another dimension. This allows the camera to offer precise real-time capture of fill levels or a comprehensive view of the process. In addition, it can also be used as the ‘eye’ of IIoT applications, allowing it to determine KPIs such as ‘Overall Equipment Efficiency’ (OEE).

HERE’S TO POSITIVE COOPERATION!

Planning and construction of a collaborative robot cell 

Safe collaboration between humans and robots in collaborative work systems is both possible and offers clear benefits, including in packaging processes. There are, however, a number of prerequisites that need to be satisfied, and several machinery safety standards that must be taken into consideration

New automation and safety solutions for intralogistics

Internal material flow – safe, productive and networked

Intralogistics is of growing importance in many industries. Due to supply bottlenecks and material shortages, new concepts for warehousing and material flows are in demand. In addition, Industry 4.0 cannot be accomplished without efficient and networked logistics. There are now new technical solutions and systems to help ensure a safe and productive intralogistics infrastructure.

A GLIMPSE INTO THE STANDARDS JUNGLE

Practical application of new standards based on a project example

When planning and designing a machine plant, there is a range of standards and directives that must be taken into account, and it can be easy to lose track. If those standards then get amended while the project is ongoing, you need to pay special attention. Using an intralogistics project as an example, we’ll show you why functional machine safety is so complex and what needs to be taken into account in different areas of machine and systems engineering.
