In assembly logistics, modern conveyor systems are used especially for flexible assembly concepts, such as component assembly in electromobility. Such conveyor systems must be safeguarded against collisions in order to protect people. The safeguarding of such applications is a particular challenge because these machines have a high moment of inertia and long stopping times.
To safeguard such applications, we have been developing and supplying high-quality and reliable HSB safety bumpers , also known as switching buffers, for over three decades. These are contact-sensitive sensors that detect contact with a person or part of a person's body. If a bumper detects contact or an obstacle, the automatic drive of the machine is switched off immediately.
With our standardised cross-sections and materials, we secure a large number of applications in practice. For particularly challenging applications, we develop customised security solutions that are completely tailored to the individual requirements and wishes of our customers with regard to dimensions, shapes, colouring and the materials used.
This was also the case when securing the LOGO!MAT eCart of our long-standing customer KRUPS Automation GmbH. You can see in this video how the development, production, delivery and installation of our HSB safety bumper on the LOGO!MAT eCart works.
Many thanks for the close and successful cooperation!
