Chaotically gripping rotationally symmetric components stored under several paving slabs is a demanding handling task. If this is to be done by just one gripper without set-up times, it means breaking new ground and developing an intelligent solution. Wickert mechanical engineering Together with a gripper manufacturer, he faced this challenge in order to automate the transport system of his hardening plants.

The Simple IO-Link device integration from Turck short SIDI, simplifies the handling of IO-Link devices in Profinet engineering systems. Since the devices are already integrated in the GSDML file of the master, the user can select the devices from the device library (for example in the TIA Portal) and integrate them via drop-down fields in his project, as if the devices were submodules on a modular I / O system.

The new fork and angle light barriers of the OP series from IFM Electronic put into operation. In contrast to conventional through-beam sensors eliminates the time-consuming adjustment of transmitter and receiver. Effortless adjustment is now done by potentiometer or via IO-Link. IO-Link can be used to set application-specific sensor modes and to easily adjust the switch-on and switch-off delay.
In a production of the size and specialization as with Stihl the plant operator and maintainers keep track. For a long time now, they no longer waste time searching for software versions or system documentation. Because since 2009 does that the version and data management software "Versiondog" from Auvesy for the 3000 systems of the professional tool specialist.
