High-quality sensor data is a crucial for Industry 4.0

High-quality sensor data is a crucial for Industry 4.0
The use of appropriate sensor technology in production is a basic prerequisite for the implementation of Industry 4.0. It collects data on process and machine status as it arises and makes it available for various process-relevant information services and workflows. However, the costs of sensor technology and the variety of possible applications often make it difficult for individual users to appreciate the direct economic benefit.

Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements

Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements
Rotary encoders provide precise digital data measurements regarding the motion or position of a shaft. Measuring motion or position relies on a consistent level of precision, a responsibility that partly falls on the coupling attached to the encoder. For this highly demanding application, Italsensor relies on Huco Flex P double-loop couplings to safeguard encoder precision and reliability.

NAV-LOC localisation sets AGVs free from reflectors

NAV-LOC localisation sets AGVs free from reflectors
SICK has set Automated Guided Vehicles free from the need for reflectors or other physical markers with the all-in-one NAV-LOC localisation solution, enabling them to navigate more reliably and efficiently around shop floor and warehouse environments. The SICK NAV-LOC (Localisation On Contour) is an easy-to-set up solution based on a SICK NAV 360o LiDAR scanner that can be integrated into new or existing AGVs.
