Depalletising made easy Sensor package simplifies unstacking task

electronic produced the app with their 3D sensor that does all the hard work. As long as the packages on the pallet are all the same, they can be detected by ifm’s remarkable 3D sensor, which gauges their size and position, telling the robot exactly where to pick the next one.

S Automated depalletising systems provide a clear

increase in performance; it is quicker and more ergonomic than leaving it up to the operator.

The 3D sensor detects displaced loads and

compensates for incorrect positioning with the depalletising system. Position indication allows fully automated depalletising of complete layers or individual packages, independent of the palletising pattern. The camera will also detect slip-sheets between layers.

New Hygienic Linear Range S

ervo Components & Systems Ltd are pleased to offer a New Hygienic Linear Actuator range.

These actuatorss are designed to be used for applications in the food,

pharmaceutical and medical industries. Both Green Drive and the Miniature linear actuators are Food Grade Certified. The Green Drive motor body and slider in stainless steel guarantee the high protection level to IP69K. The Miniature Hygienic actuators have a Golden Hard Anodised surface. Both actuators are completely washable and disinfectable. With an internal position sensor,

long stroke capability and continuous force up to 274N for the Green Drive and 20N for Miniature actuators, they are the perfect choice for food, pharma and medical industries.

SICK Reflex Array Sensors Are on the Leading Edge

Magnet Brake. The client, who has applications such as servo motors and cobots, based in Asia with locations across the world, has worked with SG Transmission for a number of years.

S Adam Russell, the lead design engineer on the

project said: “This is our sixth brake we have designed and manufactured for this successful blue chip electronics Company since we began working with them four years ago.”

SG Transmission customises electromagnetic clutches, brakes and magnets to meet the customer requirements.

difficult-to-see objects moving on high-speed conveyors. These Reflex Array Sensors create a wide 2D light band to reliably detect the leading edges of objects, even when they not clearly defined, transparent, or are only a few millimetres high, such as polybags, flat packaging and parcels. They deliver consistently high detection results, no matter if objects


are irregularly-shaped, randomly positioned on the conveyor belt, shiny, high-contrast, or varied in height or colour. The sensors will also detect perforated objects without danger of false tripping or the need to programme multiple switching operations. Where complex configuration of multiple sensors, or costly light grids,

might previously have been needed to obtain reliable results, the compact RAY10 or RAY26 sensors achieve high levels of performance in a fraction of the space and set-up time.
