Intralogistics expert Leuze electronic at LogiMAT 2020
As an expert in conveyor and storage systems, Leuze electronic presents efficient sensor solutions for optimizing intralogistics and material flow processes at LogiMAT 2020, the 18th international trade fair for intralogistics solutions and process management, from March 10-12 in Stuttgart.
Owen, December 13, 2019 – At LogiMAT 2020 from March 10-12 in Stuttgart, optical sensor manufacturer and intralogistics expert Leuze electronic will be presenting its more than 55 years of industry experience in intralogistics in Hall 3, Booth B69. "The goal is to make the material-flow and automation processes of our customers even faster and more economical with our efficient sensor solutions," explains Matthias Göhner, Corporate Industry Manager at Leuze electronic. The intralogistics expert shares the intelligent production philosophy (smart factory), where production plants and logistics systems will work without any human intervention in the future. This is where continuous conveyors and automated guided vehicles (AGV) will autonomously complete logistics tasks and navigate. Effective and safe sensor solutions are at the center of the Sensor People's 2020 LogiMAT trade fair exhibit. Leuze electronic supports vehicles that navigate based on natural features within their surroundings with two innovative products: the RSL 400 safety laser scanner and the OGS 600. The RSL 400 combines safety technology with a high-quality measurement data output for AGV in a single, compact device. This enables reliable safeguarding and navigation. By parallel-monitoring several protective fields, the speed of the automated guided vehicles is safely reduced. These new functions are also available as device variants with a PROFINET/PROFIsafe interface, which makes their integration into industrial networks particularly easy. They are also available in an AIDA-compliant model for the automotive industry. Alternatively, the navigation of automated guided vehicles for the transport of materials and goods can be solved via flexible optical guidance. With the OGS 600, Leuze electronic offers a compact sensor for this type of application. With its edge detection and control signal transmission to the drive, the trace can be guided optically, which means that driving can be automated in the simplest of ways. The routes of the automated guided vehicles can be flexibly adapted by means of optimized trace tapes. The compact design of the OGS 600 and its low minimum distance to the ground of 10 mm means it can be integrated even into flat vehicles. Other intralogistics highlights presented by the Sensor People at LogiMAT 2020 are the IPS 400i and the CMS 700i from Leuze electronic. With the IPS 400i, Leuze electronic is expanding its IPS series with a model that offers optical double-depth compartment fine positioning. The IPS 400i is the world's smallest camera-based positioning sensor for high-bay storage devices. It detects round holes or reflectors both in single-depth and double-depth bars with a distance of up to 1900 mm. The CMS 700i is a newly developed 3D contour measurement system from Leuze electronic based on the company's CML 730i measuring light curtains for the fault-free storage of goods. The complete system includes all components, the switch cabinet, fastening elements and connection technology all under one part number and can be customized for each customer. The CMS 700i measures the volume and shape of passing objects regardless of their surface structure and identifies protrusions and bulges. Even flat objects such as polybags can be precisely and economically detected without complicated camera installation. The intuitive WebConfig interface saves time and money and allows customers to handle the commissioning and maintenance themselves. And because the system collects additional data from bar code readers and scales, it is suitable both for new and existing systems. Another safety highlight from the Sensor People presented at LogiMAT especially for material-flow processes in intralogistics and the automotive industry is the "Smart Process Gating" process developed by Leuze electronic on the basis of its MLC 530 safety light curtains. It works without any signal-emitting sensors and is a true alternative to the muting process with external sensors. Experts and users alike are impressed with the solution, which is why it was awarded both the GIT Security Award and the Best-of-Industry award in 2019. In 2019 Leuze electronic also took second place in the "Automation" category of the handling award with Smart Process Gating. Visitors to the trade fair can experience its functionality first-hand through a live demonstration. The Sensor People invite you to visit at LogiMAT 2020: visitors to the trade fair can find Leuze electronic in Hall 3, Booth B69.
