MD Micro Detectors
Datalogic has acquired MD Micro Detectors operating in the design, production and sale of industrial sensors. The acquisition will allow the Group Datalogic to strengthen its Italian and global presence in the industrial automation market, through the integration of sensors, safety devices and machine safety product portfolio.
The highly innovative content of M.D. Micro Detectors combined with Datalogic’s product portfolio and distribution network represents a growth project that aims at creating the main Italian hub for sensors in the industrial automation sector.
Datalogic and M.D. customers can continue to contact their commercial references, with the advantage of having a greater choice of products and solutions for the most varied industrial automation applications, thanks to the widest range of sensors, safety devices and machine vision.
Sensors are indispensable for the industrial automation of plants and machinery in a wide range of industries and applications, from manufacturing to logistics.
Manufacturing industry applications include factory automation of automotive and electronics plants; food & beverage, pharmaceutical, chemical goods processing and packaging machines; up to almost any machinery used in woodworking, metalworking, textile, ceramic, glass, stones, paper, etc.
Logistics applications are diffused in automated material handling, conveyors, storage and retrieval systems, automated warehouses, transportation systems, and distribution centers.
Photoelectric sensors are devices that use the emission and reception of light to detect the presence of objects or their parts, inspect their integrity or correct assembly, measure their dimensions, distance or correct positioning.
In this regard, they can be distinguished in a great variety of sensors: thru-beam emitters and receivers, or retro-reflective units; diffuse, fix focus and background suppression; fiber optics amplifiers; fork sensors; contrast, color, and luminescence sensors; distance or dimensional sensors; vision sensors.
Datalogic’s smart photoelectric sensors, together with complementary products like inductive proximity, ultrasonic sensor, optical encoders, and accessories allow companies to enhance their manufacturing and logistics processes.
Whether you need to implement detection, inspection, or measuring applications for your production or distribution of any type of goods, or you want to improve your processes according to the new paradigms of digital manufacturing, sensors are an essential element of your automation. Applications are innumerable, constantly evolving, and cannot be summarized in a few lines. However, the following examples can give an idea of the unlimited potential of sensors:
Introducing sensors into your automation, instead of standard sensors, means adapting production and logistics processes to the latest digital transformation requirements.
Main common benefits are improved productivity and efficiency, more flexibility and traceability, increased profitability in terms of total cost of ownership and time savings, thanks to the following advantages:
