ATI Industrial Automation

Robotic Collision Sensor
ATI Industrial Automation has just released the newest addition to its line of Robotic Collision Sensors. The SR-61 was developed to provide a lower-range Collision Sensor than our SR-81 model, but with a similar robust design. ATI’s patented design includes an automatic reset feature that benefits workplace safety. After the robot crashes, the Collision Sensor will automatically reset when the robot removes the tooling from the crash-causing object. Compliant in the X, Y and Z axes, this capability provides a safer method for resetting by making it unnecessary for personnel to enter the robotic work cell.

Bosch Rexroth Corporation

Bosch Rexroth aluminum framing is ideal for safety guarding.
Unlike welded steel, bolt-together aluminum framing from Bosch Rexroth assembles quickly and easily. The clear anodized surface needs no painting, and it's also easier to reconfigure, move or re-use elsewhere in your factory. Besides that, it looks great, making a favorable impression on your customers and your employees.

DE-STA-CO

"Fastest vacuum and blow-off in the industry"
DE-STA-CO offers a complete line of Vacuum Products including the "Auto Release Venturi" or “ARV”, a single air line venturi with integrated blow-off and standard silencer. The single air line operation reduces the cost and complexity of the plumbing associated with automation end effectors. The ARV’s integrated blow-off feature offers instant panel release which increases line speed and therefore throughput. The standard built-in silencer lowers noise levels to below industrial standards, reducing operator fatigue. An optional vacuum sensor port allows for part-present sensing which can be directly mounted on the ARV body, or remotely mounted on the automation. With a comprehensive offering of mounting options, the ARV can be used in virtually any end-effector automation configuration with ease.

DENSO Robotics offers a wide range of compact, high-precision, four-, five- and six-axis robots, for payloads up to 20 kg and reaches from 350 to 1,300 mm. Repeatability is to within ±0.015 mm. Cleanroom, dust and mistproof and standard models are available to accommodate many different applications. 

Fortress Interlocks

Fortress offers an unrivalled portfolio suitable for applications across a wide industrial base from power generation and distribution, steel, automotive, recycling, building materials, through safeguarding robots and palletizers. With in excess of 40 years experience in the safety market, Fortress is renowned for its innovative design, robust engineering and reliability. During these hard economic times we are especially excited to be able to offer Fortress Interlocks’ new development for T/K interlocks suitable for robot applications with no need for wiring at the entry gate, hence a cost saving. The DM-I internal release actuator provides an internal release facility in multi-access applications allowing personnel to exit from inside the guarded area if necessary. Any combination of isolation/access keys are possible, features sequential or non-sequential key operation and utilizes monitoring switches which provide feedback of operation.

Pilz Automation Safety

A globally recognized leader in safety controls technology, Pilz manufactures and offers a complete line of safe automation solutions and control products including SafetyEYE®. SafetyEYE® is a camera-based three-dimensional monitoring system that safeguards people working in or around hazardous operations. It  uses three dynamic digital cameras positioned above the work area to provide continuous monitoring. A control unit receives the images via fiber optics, analyzes the data and creates a virtual 3-D image of the work area. Then, using configuration software, 3-D zones are established to identify safe and hazardous areas. Once detected SafetyEYE® controls or eliminates the hazard, protecting the worker from injury and the process from interruption. SafetyEYE® can adapt motion to reduce a hazard, rather than completely shut down a machine. In addition, SafetyEYE® has the option of defining virtual zones for the actuation of any process.Complete your safety solution through the expertise of Pilz's worldwide engineering and consulting services. Qualified consultants are available for worldwide services for plant and risk assessment, safety concept, safety design, CE services and safety sign-off.
