Leuze electronic Process-controlled Access Guarding

Leuze electronic demonstrated its Smart Process Gating (SPG) at this year’s LogiMAT. SPG was developed on the basis of the company’s MLC 530 safety light curtains. This muting process functions without the use of signal-emitting sensors.

SPG makes muting processes for intralogistics, the automotive industry and packaging industry less expensive, simpler and safer. Previously, muting processes with muting sensors were required in order to clearly identify when transported goods are approaching a protective field at material locks and to bridge the passing of these goods through the protective field at the correct moment. As a result of the SPG method, signal-emitting sensors are no longer needed, meaning that conveyor systems can be made more compact.
