S3000 Anti Collision with a sensing range up to 15 Meter at Jungheinrich

Now made possible: More vehicles in narrow aisles

Narrow isle

In mobile applications, the S3000 Anti Collision safety laser scanner offers by far the largest sensing range for a field where safety is key: 15 meters. Working closely with Jungheinrich, SICK has developed a solution to provide efficient protection for narrow aisle trucks. Thanks to this new solution, two or more industrial trucks can now be used in one narrow aisle for the first time ever. It forms the ideal basis for improving throughput and flexibility while still ensuring maximum safety. Continue reading

The perfect combination of benefits in a single system

Lector65xSystem_teaser

Modern logistics processes are a force to be reckoned with: They can handle around 200,000 parcels an hour at one single reloading point. But they are also extremely demanding: They need increased safety for sorting, increased safety for identifying, and increased safety for classifying products. To prevent blockages in the parcel stream, companies have to know how to handle this flow and adapt it. So that warehouse management processes can run smoothly at all times, every single inbound and outbound product has to be recorded correctly. Sensors for identifying objects and measuring volumes are key to ensuring that data in the material flow is reliable. Sensor systems for identifying objects, measuring volumes, and weighing items set a new standard when it comes to flexibility in the logistics industry. Continue reading

Pick-to-light: For error-free picking in order commissioning

Pick-to-Light Kommissionierung

When commissioning a production order in the production department, e.g. final assembly or engine production in the automotive industry, then various sub-quantities may have to be put together from the total quantity. A pick-to-light commissioning procedure, in which a signal lamp is located on each storage bay, can be implemented in order to display the correct picking tray. The objective therein is to guarantee error-free picking and to reliably guide the machine operator. No problem, with pick-to-light light grids from SICK. Continue reading
