Leuze offers plug and play access guarding

Leuze offers plug and play access guarding

Access guards for robot cells are often complex systems with different individual components, which must be individually assembled and compatible. This also requires long installation and start-up processes. Pictured right: The palletizing robots in the Beumer robotpac series are typical systems in which MLDSET access guarding from Leuze Electronic is used. “Leuze Electronic has developed […]
