Innovative strength, a down-to-earth culture and strong commitment are the values that have made WITRON – based in the Upper Palatinate region of Germany – the company that it is today: worldwide one of the market leaders in the planning and realization of highly dynamic warehouse and order picking systems in the field of intralogistics. WITRON is constantly working on developing even better, even more cost-efficient logistics solutions for its customers, to make them even more successful. In the area of automation and further optimization of warehouse logistics, the selection of suitable, competent and innovative partners also plays a decisive role for WITRON. WITRON relies on creative solutions from Leuze electronic not only in its own production and warehouse logistics. The company also realizes efficient safety solutions for its customers together with optical sensor manufacturer Leuze electronic. This includes the use of "Smart Process Gating" (SPG), a process developed by Leuze electronic that enables access guarding with material transport to be designed more compactly, simpler and safer.
The rise of digitization also means that known processes and procedures are subject to change. Standards that have been valid and established thus far are now under examination, done away with entirely, or may need to be adapted. In many regards, there is a sense that the world is becoming increasingly complex, thus requiring a new level of expertise and strategies to successfully master the challenges of the future. For this reason, Leuze electronic is developing smart sensors to optimize the production processes of its customers and increase the productivity of their systems and machines.
Accepting responsibility - this is the company philosophy of Hamburg-based company Dr. Weigert, the developer and manufacturer of cleaning and disinfecting agents. Not only does this include responsibility for hygiene and protecting the environment, but also protecting the company's employees from dangerous manufacturing and logistics processes.
MLC 530 SPG, safety light curtains with “Smart Process Gating”, provides efficient access guarding without muting sensors in a compact, space saving system design at entry/exit gates. The MLC 530 SPG also offers high security against tampering while allowing changes in transport material with no alignment of sensors needed.
For a while now, sensors are not only a matter of process control – today one of their primary tasks is to link processes together. With its extensive range of Safety@work products, Leuze electronic optimizes collaboration between man and machine: sensor and control systems, like those of the RSL 400 safety laser scanner, can be integrated intelligently into the processes performed by machines and safeguard these machines in a reliable and tamperproof manner. At the same time, the processes are structured efficiently and cost-effectively.
The RSL 400 safety laser scanner not only ensures that automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are operated safely by means of protective and warning fields, but it also simultaneously captures the measurement values for the navigation software.
