Assa Abloy Albany RapidProtect 2000: Machine Protection For Automated Processes

Assa Abloy's Albany RP2000 is a type tested machine protection door with an aluminum door blade for automated processes. Machine protection doors are an effective safety measure, providing optimal protection for personnel and machines without adversely affecting cycle times. They enable a rapid switch from complete isolation of a production stage to unimpeded access to the workpiece and machine in a matter of seconds, effectively protecting personnel from flying sparks, welding spatter, etc.

Advantages of RapidProtect 2000:

  • With a rigid, reinforced curtain made from aluminum slats, the RP2000 provides complete protection, even from deflection of the curtain
  • The slats are connected with side-mounted flat belts for contact-free winding, ensuring:
    • Very rapid speeds
    • Reduced operational noise
    • Very long maintenance intervals
    • Long service life
    • Scratch resistant surface
  • Individual slats can easily be replaced as required 
  • High reliability even after years of high numbers of cycles
  • Versions conforming to various factory standards are possible
  • Rapid opening and closing ensures short cycle times

The Future of Logistics Automation is Now!

Autonomous Robots Changing the Speed of Business

Automate in-house transportation giving you rapid return on investment, often with a payback period of less than one year. 

C&E will be hosting live demonstrations. See the benefits:
  • No conveyor bands; the robot “identifies” its surroundings -easily adapting to changes in its route if given a different task
  • MiR has a payload of 220 lbs or is able to tow 660 lbs
  • Eliminate dead time between process steps by continuously repeating assigned duty
  • MiR can be customized with tow hooks, robot arms and shelf lifts along with other modification options

Improve Safety in Demanding Environments With Turck's New Preassembled Meltric Connector Cable Assemblies

To improve worker safety in industrial environments, Turck has introduced a new pre-assembled Meltric connector offering with arc protection. The products offer a complete cable assembly solution, saving labor and installation time and ensuring reliability.

To protect against arcing, the Meltric series connectors feature spring-loaded demating technology inside an enclosed arc chamber, along with mating and demating shutters to shield users from live parts. Users are able to safely connect and disconnect the devices under load.  For additional safety, these connectors will only mate with their designated connector class, and demate and break load by the push of a
button directly on the connector.

Each Meltric connector is switch and horsepower rated, so one device can be used as both a connector and disconnect switch. Operations are streamlined by removing the need for a separate disconnect switch in applications that require a line-of-sight disconnect.

Ideal for use with high-powered electrical equipment, these connectors can serve as both a connector and a disconnect switch. The ability to have a quick disconnect connector allows a simplified motor change-out process. This new Meltric connector offering can be simply disconnected with the push of a button and they meet all required electrical safety guidelines.

Join C&E For A Webinar Featuring MiR - Mobile Industrial Robots - This Friday!

Let C&E Demonstrate the Benefits of Automated Internal Transport!

MiR100 is a user-friendly and efficient mobile robot for automation of internal transport and logistic solutions. The robot optimizes workflows, freeing up staff resources and allowing you to increase productivity while reducing costs. 

MiR100 Hook is a unique hook solution that makes it possible to automatically grab and deliver carts, racks, etc. The new hook can pull payloads up to 650 lbs. The robot grabs and delivers automatically from one fixed position to another. Check out the video below. Because of the built-in sensors and cameras the MiR100 can be used for collaborative operation.

MiR100 belongs to a new generation of advanced mobile robots which gives you rapid return-on-investment; often with a payback period of less than a year. Technology enables the robot to either "identify" its driving area and surroundings or import 3D drawings of the building layout.
