"DV WING": a flying wing for agriculture and mapping
"DV WING" is a fixed-wing unit equipped with an 18.2 MP sensor and uses algorithms enabling it to obtain aerial imagery and accurate data for missions such as photogrammetry, map analysis for farming areas and forests, and measurements for road construction...
The data it collects can be used by farmers to establish accurate diagnostics for the treatment of crops and the management of pesticide use. The "DV WING" can also be used by quarry and mining operators to measure volumes.

Compact and very light at just 940 grams, the "DV WING" is easy to use and can be launched by hand. It has enough battery power for autonomous flight times of 85 minutes and the on-board sensor is capable of capturing very high resolution images. The solution is capable of generating highly accurate ortho-photos.

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.
