MATERIAL FLOW only has to enter the bag length and the bag width. Then the system brings the bag into the corresponding position,” explains Bernhard Temming, service manager at Beumer. On the basis of the modular structure, the twin-belt turning device can be retrofitted even in already existing palletizing systems in a trouble-free way. Quiet and efficient 02 The twin-belt turning device: Two parallelly driven belt conveyors, which are driven with different speeds during the turning process, bring the bags gently into the required position set parameters easily and quickly. The new Human Machine Interface (HMI) ensures a user-friendly operation of the system. This control terminal provides the employee with an easily understandable and intuitive interaction, enabling the user to learn the system rapidly and to define efficient working sequences after just a short training and introduction period. Stable stack formation “In order to turn the bags rapidly and gently to the required position ensuring their dimensional stability, the systems are provided with our newly developed twin-belt turning device. In regards to the stackability, this device offers an immense advantage when compared with conventional turning processes,” Peter Schmidt explains. The system component moves the bags without stressing them from a mechanical viewpoint. Instead, two parallelly driven belt conveyors are used, which, during the turning process, are driven with different speeds bringing the bags gently into the desired position. The intelligent control of the twinbelt turning device involves the physical properties of the items to be packed in order to achieve an exact positioning preset by the respective packing pattern. In case of changes in bag sizes, all relevant parameters are registered and controlled just via software. For this, the system reverts to an active control loop. The regulation of the drives is carried out by frequency converters, thus developing a gentle, regular rotation and ensuring that the bagged products are not deformed. This results in constant stack results for the whole service life of the system. Ready packed pallets can be stacked on top of each other in a space-saving and safe way. A further advantage is that time-consuming modifications in case of changed bag sizes are no longer required. „The operator A further reason for Schwenk Putztechnik to opt for the Beumer systems was their efficient operation. In addition to capital costs, operational costs, spare parts costs and also maintenance costs play an important role. “These are better reduced with the twin-belt turning device than with other turning devices,” recognizes service manager Bernhard Temming. “The mere automated product change avoids idle times,” and as the system component abstains from cost-intensive mechanical components, this optimizes the maintenance and repair costs in the long term and reduces the life-cycle costs. “Comparable solutions of competitors for the layer preparation rely on pneumatic elements with correspondingly high operational costs. In our twin-belt turning devices work is done by energy efficient synchronous servomotors,” explains Temming. The relinquishment of mechanical parts additionally lowers noises during operation. Peter Schmidt is convinced that this is a strength that happens especially in the day-to-day operations, providing for an improved working atmosphere and inuring to the benefit of the skilled personnel of the building material manufacturer in their daily working sequence. For this project Beumer took over the whole handling – from projection up to installation. The experts of the Beumer Customer Support take care of the optimization and maintenance of the systems, therefore, they are always available. In case of acute problems, the building material manufacturer can contact the Beumer Hotline around the clock. An online connection with the machine permits to carry out a rapid fault analyses. “We are very satisfied with the service. This was a further important aspect which led us to opt for Beumer,” says Martin Markus.

PRODUCT NEWS Impressions of CeMAT Russia 2014 The leading position of CeMAT Russia as the most important intralogistics trade show in Russia was clear again in this the fifth year of the event. Exhibits ranged from semi-automated solutions to fully automatic storage. Presentations covered all the elements of intralogistics, from industrial trucks to conveyor systems, storage, order picking and software. „We have noted growing interest in intralogistics systems among visitors to CeMAT Russia“, says Bernd Rohde, Director of CeMAT worldwide, Deutsche Messe AG. (Note: parts of the video are in German and Russian) Data glasses guarantee high picking accuracy Warehouse system works without conventional conveyor technology The newly developed, flexible and scalable warehouse system from Flexi Robots works without conventional conveyor technology. The “Katze” (“cat”) rail-based transfer car and “Giraffe” (“giraffe”), a combination of the racking control device and shuttle, decouple the processes in the warehouse area. New designs in which storage, buffering, and sequencing are integrated into one system can now be implemented. The manufacturer’s flexible 3D solutions ensure that individual loading equipment can be transported from any position in the system across all the aisles to any other position within the system without having to leave it. During this process, the transport media used within the warehouse area is consistently operated separately and in parallel. This improves the access dynamics, increases storage density, and enables storage removals to be sequenced in the storage system. The complete system can be scaled as required. This means that several “cats” can be integrated in the rack construction, and workplaces or station can be connected at any position. At the same time, the system design enables several “giraffes” to be installed above and next to each other in one aisle. Picavi data glasses picking system from Logcom is ready for the market. The company is a high tech startup that is adapting picking with innovative data glasses specifically for branches with high picking rates. The entire “Picavi” concept was developed by experts with decades of experience in the intralogistics industry. Only the current information that is applicable to the order picker is displayed on the data glasses. This ensures that staff are strictly directed through the working process and have both hands free. The system guarantees a high level of picking accuracy and optimized routes are reliably adhered to. New employees can quickly learn to follow situational instructions. New laser-distance sensor from Telemecanique for crane Telemecanique Sensors has launched Osi Sense XUK9T, a crane sensor with directly integrated anti-collision and tandem functions. This sensor is particularly suitable for overhead cranes and was developed in accordance with the applicable industry specifications. The sensor measurement process is based on the time of flight (ToF) process, whereby the speed of light is used to measure the distance to the object or reflector over time. The 50x50 mm device is easy to integrate into systems thanks to the rotatable plug connector that has a range of up to 70 m to the reflector. The device also has an excellent coverage rate of 500 Hz for fast applications. As the device has three inputs and three outputs, a M12 plug connector with eight pins is provided for the connections. No protective measures are required as the sensors meet the requirements of laser class 1. türk-alman Business Center BRING YOUR BUSINESS TO GERMANY AND EUROPE The türk-alman Business Center, a project of the trade fair city of Hannover Your one-stop-shop to get access to Turkey’s most important market Business Development, Financing, Marketing & Sales Support WIRTSCHAFTSFÖRDERUNG hannoverimpuls f+h Intralogistics 1/2015 29 HannoverImpulse.indd 1 09.02.2015 10:17:52
