Schmersal showcases new developments for safety and automation

The growing volume of online trade is a key driver for developments in intralogistics, which calls for increasing process automation, and efficient and safe plant technology. Using a model that depicts different process steps and technologies, including filling, conveyor and palletising technology as well as robotics, The Schmersal Group, at the Hannover Messe, will be demonstrating components and systems that not only contribute to occupational safety, but meets the stringent requirements of intralogistics and packaging industry in terms of fail-safe operation and plant productivity. The Schmersal Group offers one of world's largest product portfolio of safety switchgear devices and systems for personal and machine protection to its customer.

Intelligent solenoid interlocks
A robot carrying out palletisation operations is safeguarded on the Schmersal stand with solenoid interlocks that keep guard doors locked until hazardous movements have come to a halt. Intelligent safety components, such as the AZM201 solenoid interlock, help to minimise downtime with the help of comprehensive diagnosis functions.

New Time-of-Flight procedure
Schmersal will be demonstrating a new technology at Hannover Messe for the first time – a technology in which the position and stacking height of boxes/crates palletised by robots is monitored by a ToF camera. The Time-of-Flight (ToF) procedure can be used to create a 3D image of the scene that is available as a point cloud. The scene can then be used to determine the positions and dimensions of objects. Software that can be used to define and monitor three-dimensional zones in space opens up a wide range of automation solutions in logistics and production-line production. ToF cameras enable efficient, real-time data evaluation, such as when carrying out measurement tasks in fill level monitoring or volume determination of piece goods.

New magnet track sensor box
Electric monorail conveyors are used to transport work-pieces, tools and other purchased parts in almost every industry. Schmersal will be showcasing a solution for precisely this application at Hannover Messe: the SSB-R sensor box is used to define route sections for speed regulation for electric monorail conveyors in a manner that is cost efficient and maintenance free. It also allows park positions to be approached with careful accuracy.

New command and signalling devices in hygienic design
The new H series from Schmersal will be showcased at Hannover Messe as a full range of command and signalling devices for hygiene-sensitive applications, particularly in food processing.
