From the depths of marine environments to the barren plains of Mars, Optech sensors efficiently provide detailed 3D data in even the most challenging situations. With over 40 years of experience in lidar, passive sensors, and auxiliary technologies such as timing electronics, GPS, inertial measurement systems, waveform digitization, and advanced analytics, Optech has a proven track record with hundreds of innovative, robust, and reliable systems deployed around the world and beyond.

Optech's SWAP-efficient Orion ALTM was the industry's first UAV-deployed airborne lidar system, and has since become its leading commercial product. Today, as a Teledyne majority-owned company, Optech is committed to offering its customers and partners continued innovation for unmanned systems worldwide.

Whether you are an end-user, platform OEM, or potential technology partner, please visit Optech at booth 943 as part of the Teledyne group of companies to learn how Optech can meet your needs. Experience… The Difference!

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
