26 May, 2020 – Pixel-Plus combines data streams from multidimensional TOF (“time-of-flight”) sensors with signals from high-resolution color cameras, creating digital representations of real objects. These “digital twins” offer a much higher level of information than solely camera- or sensor-based solutions.

Together with the Linz Center of Mechatronics (LCM), an innovative digital approach to hydraulic sintering presses that will achieve significant energy savings is being presented. In addition, cloud networking makes sensor data available regardless of location and thus enables effective status monitoring to optimize maintenance operations centrally and prevent unplanned downtimes.

The joint venture 3D.aero, operated in conjunction with Lufthansa-Technik, will demonstrate high-performance 3-D inspection of aerospace components. Because of the sheer size of the objects tested, the highly precise measuring technology goes to the object rather than the other way around.

The ICE3 IO-Link master module comes with an integrated OPC UA server as a unique selling point. This enables end-to-end communication to be established from the sensor/actuator level to cloud structures via the standard protocol for Industry 4.0. The MultiLink technology offers a second data path, which is available parallel to real-time critical communication at the control level.

Automation is our world. A Perfect application solution is our goal.

A willingness to take entrepreneurial risks, a pioneering spirit, and a firm belief in their own inventive powers – these were the assets that Walter Pepperl and Ludwig Fuchs started out with when they opened their Mannheim radio repair shop in 1945. Their invention of the proximity switch a few years later proved their strength. It was also the starting point in a successful history defined by close customer relationships as well as innovative automation technologies and procedures. Then as now, our focus is directed squarely on the individual requirements of each customer. Whether as a pioneer in electrical explosion protection, or as a leading innovator of highly efficient sensors – the close communication with our customers is what allowed us to become the leader in automation technology. Our main objective is combining state-of-the-art technologies and comprehensive services to optimize our customers’ processes and applications.
