Businesses are experiencing an array of material handling problems from labor shortages to increased demand and customization. Automation has moved from nice-to-have to must have, but one of the most challenging tasks to automate is material handling because business needs and facility conditions are constantly changing. Even the most automated facilities still move material manually.

Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are an intelligent, flexible, and scalable solution that can be deployed and re-deployed quickly against a variety of workflows to deliver immediate benefits.

In this webinar, Jay Judkowitz, VP Product, and Neil Datt, Director of Product Marketing at OTTO Motors, will discuss:

  • •How AMRs can improve material handling processes to increase output
  • •Specific workflows AMRs can address and key considerations
  • •Examples of successful AMR deployments in greenfield and brownfield facilities including ROI, KPIs and TCO

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
