Safe and efficient palletizing and packing of goods is one of the biggest challenges in the packaging industry. A high degree of automation facilitates processes such as gripping, stacking or packing objects. Viking Masek Robotics & Automation offers precisely tailored automation solutions to protect not only the precious cargo, but also all danger zones for people and machines. VMRA is supported by intelligent safety light curtains and protective devices from wenglor.

In this example of a system for a kitchen furniture manufacturer, it quickly becomes clear how wenglor’s safety technology secures several zones that can be operated independently of one another. The transitions between the zones are protected by safety light curtains, so that goods of different sizes can be safely transported into and out of each area. Protection in this application is achieved by a special muting configuration that allows objects of different sizes to pass through zones while the remaining safety field remains active.

wenglor’s safety technology offers reliable protection of hazardous areas with different safety field heights using muting and blanking functions, LED displays and IO-Link interface. Certified finger, hand and body protection with protection class type 4 and performance level e ensure compliance with the latest international safety standards in the automation of these systems.
