Sensor solutions
for robot working areas

Intelligent solutions: modern code readers identify the part type –
laser scanners and light barriers safeguard the work area.

Industrial robots are often used for automated loading and unloading of machine tools. In so-called robot cells, numerous swivel and gripping movements are performed in a very short period of time. These zones must be reliably protected against access over a large area. Before the robot picks up a part, the part must be uniquely identified to ensure that the correct processing step is carried out.


Our safety laser scanners reliably monitor large danger zones around robot cells. Modern code readers are easy to configure and are characterized by a high reading performance. This ensures that the correct work piece is passed on to the next work step.
