Industrial automation is based on detecting the presence, position, or quality of an object, in any production and logistics sector.
To innovate this area and facilitate the transition to industry 4.0, the DATASENSING project was launched, which will combine the Sensor & Safety / Machine Vision Business Unit of Datalogic, a world leader in automatic data acquisition, and M.D. Micro Detectors, a company operating in the design, production, and sale of industrial sensors.
DATASENSING intends to strengthen its presence in industrial automation globally through a complete offering of sensors in various technologies, optoelectronic devices for the safety of machines and production plants, automated vehicle guidance and machine vision for Smart Manufacturing.
The CEO, Cosimo Capuzzello, said “DATASENSING starts from solid foundations and I am sure it will reach important milestones as early as 2021, with an expected turnover of 76 million euros.
Thanks to the agreement with Datalogic, we will create an industrial player with a hundred years of experience, merging two realities that have made the history of sensors in our country since the early 1970s: M.D. Micro Detectors with its pioneering product and production process technology and Datalogic with an innovative product portfolio and a consolidated presence on a global level. ”
Smart cameras and industrial vision processors offers multiple solutions covering a wide range of performance and price point requirements.
Machine vision solutions can be used to identify parts through barcode, by reading characters (OCR), or recognizing patterns; to detect defects and locating parts; to guide robots’ arms; to help control the process of the manufacturing line.
Smart cameras mean the flexibility of a full-blown vision system packed into a compact housing, thus simplifying the device integration on the machine.Industrial vision processors and cameras offer cutting edge image processing capabilities, vision processors enable high-end multi camera machine vision solutions.
The easy and intuitive IMPACT configuration software is common to all smart cameras and industrial vision processors. It features over 120 inspection tools and controls to create unique inspection programs and develop user interfaces quickly and easily Machine vision accessories range from filters and lenses to lighting, cables and interfaces, brackets and enclosures.
Sensors are essential in industrial automation to detect the presence of objects or parts, inspect the integrity or correct assembly, measure the dimension, distance or positioning.
Photoelectric are the most diffused and available in many different sizes, version, and functionalities, ranging from smallest to fastest objects, clear or shiny surfaces, color or invisible fluorescent marks, including dimension or distance measurement.
Inductive proximity are specific for metal parts detection at short distance, also in harsh environments with dust, liquids, oil or grease. Capacitive sensors are used for detecting liquids or powder, also inside opaque and non-metal containers.
Ultrasonic sensors are suitable for transparent object detection (plastic film, glass, labels), with distance measurement capability.
Accessories include brackets and cables, IO-Link Master, fiber optics and reflectors for photoelectrics.
Manufacturing applications are widespread in automotive and electronics plants; food & beverage and pharmaceutical, processing and packaging machinery; woodworking, metalworking, textile, ceramic, glass, stones, paper, etc.
Logistics applications are automated material handling, conveyors, storage and retrieval, automated warehouses, distribution centers.
SAFETY & GUIDANCE
Safety devices are mandatory for operator’s protection in potentially hazardous areas, plants or machinery.
Safety optoelectronic devices are safety light barriers, curtains, grids, light beams and control units, used for the detection of finger, hand, arm, body, or presence detection in fixed applications.
Safety laser scanners are suitable for configurable area protection or even dynamic applications, in particular robotic cells and automated guided vehicles (AGV). Safety accessories include cables, connection box, brackets, IP69K protection tubes, lens shield, laser pointer, test pieces.
Manufacturing industry applications include automotive and electronics plants, especially robotic cells; food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical goods processing and packaging machines; any machinery used in woodworking, metalworking, textile, ceramic, glass, stones, paper, etc.
Logistics applications are diffused in automated material handling, conveyors, storage and retrieval, automated warehouses, and AGV.
Furthermore, logistics applications are integrated by Lidars for guidance and navigation, and encoders for the vehicle speed measurement.
