Product Innovations Global excellence for China “With the recently founded sales and service company in Shanghai we are even closer to the market” – Peter van der Klooster, Sales Director Asia-Pacific at Transnorm To meet the demands of the growth market in China, intralogistic systems must provide high throughput speed as well as high availability. Together with rising wages, that argues for increasingly automated intralogistics in China, which must also be implemented with efficient, high-quality sorting and distribution technology. Potential operating system integrators and end customer can choose the appropriate modules and a standardized industry-specific solution for their relevant application from Transnorm’s extensive product range. Transnorm modules and solutions are used for example in sorting and distribution systems for containers and boxes in industry, commerce and in distribution centers. This wide range of applications ensures that operating system integrators and end users will receive key intralogistics components optimized for their specific industry and tailor made for their requirements. With the sales and service company founded last year in Shanghai, Transnorm is now directly represented in China. “In addition to direct sales support, we can also offer our customers improved service response times and shorter delivery times for replacement parts,” notes Peter van der Klooster, Sales Director Asia-Pacific at Transnorm, emphasizing the company’s commitment in China. www.transnorm.com New controller improves processes in warehouse logistics ABM Greiffenberger Antriebstechnik GmbH, Germany presents a new controller for intralogistics. It is highly versatile and improves processes in the container conveyor technology. It shows its strengths especially in combination with energy-efficient gear units and motors of ABM Greiffenberger. For the time being, the new controller has been designed for a motor power of up to 0.75 kW and works with asynchronous motors as well as permanently excited motors at a temperature range of -30 up to +50°C without any problems. The ABM Sinochron Motors can be operated sensorless without encoder feedback and so they are extremely reliable. In practice, they are distinguished by high efficiencies, high power density and compact dimensions. The decentralized controller has been designed for the direct assembly to the motor. Alternatively, it can be attached to the wall, separated from the motor. Moreover, several drives can be operated from one common power supply (Daisy Chain). www.abm-drives.com A focus on quick and efficient data capture The growing volume of shipments in the online retail sector and the greater parts complexity in the industrial sectors are giving rise to new challenges for the field of logistics. With its automated DWS system, Vitronic, Germany has developed an integrated solution for quickly and efficiently capturing packages. DWS stands for the individual steps Dimensioning, Weighing and Scanning, which the Vitronic solution integrates into one continuous process. The certified Vitronic DWS systems automatically read barcodes and 2D codes on up to six package sides while simultaneously determining the package volume and weight with maximum precision. The data is transmitted to a sorter control system or a higher-level host system and stored in an alibi storage. This full, transparent and continually traceable database enables process control and automatic invoicing. www.vitronic.com Dematic will show on CeMAT Asia 2015 Dematic is one of the world’s leading suppliers of logistics automation systems and solutions.
