Faster and More Accurate Positioning – Bosch Modernizes Several Industrial Vehicles with PSI Technics' ARATEC Positioning Solution System

Project Brief: Positioning system modernization and optimization of five stacker cranes and three shuttle cars that are used for storage and retrieval in the client's central European warehouse for care spare parts.

Thomas Knebel, Maintenance Planner, Automotive Aftermarket, Robert Bosch GmbH, Karlsruhe, Germany:

BMW Group Relies on PSI Technics' TPCC Sensor Cooling Technology

The aluminum's high heat radiation at a BMW factory causes environmental temperatures to rise to up to 176°F (80°C) which led to disruptions of fill-level monitoring sensors in the foundry's casting process, particularly during the summer months.

The Thermo Protection Cooling Case (TPCC) now expands the sensors' application range, ensures accurate readings and considerably extends usable sensor life.

Günter Sommerer, Equipment Planning, BMW AG, Landshut Factory:

"The TPCC perfectly protects the SICK DT500 sensor from heat, effectively preventing measurement errors. The sensor's susceptibility to high radiant heat that previously led to a loss of production was completely remedied and BMW’s investment in the TPCC paid off very quickly."

Reliable Systems Ensure Operational Safety and Process Stability at Volkswagen

An industrial image processing system (Inline Control System) prevents costly disruptions at a Power & Free Golf vehicle assembly line at Volkswagen AG in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Jürgen Bastek, Manager of Maintenance, Volkswagen AG:

"A product that was quick to install and would provide a reliable trolley wheel inspection was important to us. We wanted to proactively detect material fatigue to avoid corrective measures. The fully automated inspection of our Power & Free installation guarantees a smooth production process. Costly production downtimes are a thing of the past."
