Automation with robots

Safety without the need for protective fences

desma_teaser

With the help of safety laser scanners from the microScan3 product family as well as a Flexi Soft safety controller, DESMA guarantees the safe operation of a robot on an injection molding machine. The electro-sensitive protective devices allow ergonomic access to the machine for the purposes of process-orientated material staging and removal. The robot automatically picks up the raw material provided as soon as the safety perimeter is clear and dispenses the processed silicone and rubber parts. At the same time, the safety laser scanners are especially economical on space and therefore do not impede the process. Continue reading

Displacement measurement sensors: Custom quality

The ultimate inspection authority and guarantor of quality for every stage of the process

OD_precision_teaser

Within the electronics industry, quality and precision are key factors when it comes to intelligent production concepts: The only way to ensure high levels of quality – from the individual components right through to the end product – is to keep tabs on the value creation process by continuously evaluating measurement results. Optical measurement technology from SICK combines precision and quality in one – by offering measuring instruments that are integrated directly into the production process. In an industry where high measurement accuracy is required in conjunction with short sensing ranges and the tiniest of objects, displacement measurement sensors are really able to show their strengths.
