Draw-wire mechanisms for encoders are the ideal choice when positions must be accurately determined over straight distances. Examples of use range from short distances, for example with scissor lifts or fork lift trucks, to long distances, such as those covered by trolleys on crane booms or transport systems in high-bay warehouses.Advantage
When it comes to beer brewing, tradition and state-of-the-art technology are not mutually exclusive - not at all! Our sensors ensure that the good old brewing recipe according to the purity law will be adhered to in every detail, even in industrial production. And, of course, our automation solutions are just as useful in bottling plants for mineral water, lemonade or fruit juices. Cheers!
Effective protection for fans and engines can be that simple: The VV vibration sensor from ifm detects and reports when vibrations, frictions or impact occur or a machine overheats. Thanks to IO-Link, integration into existing Industry 4.0 infrastructures is very easy.
The robot Bakus from Vitibot from Champagne uses eight 3D cameras from ifm to reproduce a 360° 3D environment and to navigate in the vine row or parcel of land while the tools are working on the plants. This fully electric and autonomous robot enables a multitude of soil and vineyard operations and offers an efficient and sustainable alternative to the use of pesticides.
The times when farmers would sit on a stool to milk the cows are fedinitly over. Today, fully automated systems are used to milk the teats of the cows. Sophisticated robotics guarantee a gentle milking pleasure. We all know that only happy cows provide the best milk.

The company Cimt builds dental milling machines for dental laboratories and practice laboratories.What makes the machines special is the quality and efficiency of the installed components.This enables customers, such as the Huck dental laboratory, to mill applications much faster, with significantly increased quality and process reliability.The machines comply with the industry standard in the dental sector.The aim is to increase the efficiency of dental laboratories.With IO-Link, a modern and reliable system is used that enables easy integration of smart functions via the plug & play principle and helps to save time and costs.The installed sensors allow insight into every production step of the machines and also help to support the customer remotely in case of maintenance.The excellent cooperation between Cimt and ifm thus creates significant added value for the end customers.
A smart container port depends on high-performance data and voice communication in all areas. Here, in the area of wireless transmission, there is no real alternative to the latest generation of mobile communications - the 5G technology. Ericsson offers a wide range of 5G network variants tailored to different applications and scenarios. More autonomous vehicles require continuous monitoring, and service and order management in real time. Robust edge gateways from ifm "From the Sensor to the Cloud" in combination with 5G technology from Ericsson offer a finely scalable solution as private, public or hybrid infrastructure to make the combination of big data with artificial intelligence a reality.

Beumer is a machine factory for the manufacture of conveyor systems and, among others, active in the field of baggage handling. The O3D sensor from ifm plays a major role for the transport of baggage between the baggage check-in at the belt and loading of the aircraft. After baggage check-in the sensor measures the dimensions of the pieces of luggage and automatically detects them before they pass into the automatic baggage handling system.
This ensures the quickest possible transport channel.
