Simulation - Digital Intralogistics Consulting now with point cloud
By using dynamic 2D and 3D plant simulations, EK AUTOMATION advises its customers on the optimal planning and dimensioning of complex interlogistics plants and upstream and downstream processes. The simulation models make connections, system boundaries, bottlenecks and various solution alternatives visible, which contribute to faster decision-making for the best possible plant realisation.
EK AUTOMATION also offers state-of-the-art 3D laser measurement: The entire visible environment of a room is recorded. Numerous individual scans result in the so-called point cloud of a room, which represents the exact image of the measured objects. Based on this data, the digital overall model is then created and serves as an excellent basis for a simulation.
FAST MOVE - High-tech solutions for Industry 4.0
At LogiMAT 2019, visitors can experience live how the FAST MOVE, which was presented for the first time last year, accurately and efficiently transports and moves various types of goods: in its standard version, it transports pallets between several cantilever arms. Equipped with a 140 mm lift table, it transports a trolley. EK AUTOMATION will also be presenting a third variant, a customer-specific solution of FAST MOVE, in which transport boxes are automatically transferred by roller conveyor.
Visit EK AUTOMATION at LogiMAT from 19 to 21 February 2019 in Hall 7, Stand C11.
