A client specializing in bearings, bearing units, seals, mechatronics, services and lubrication systems in Oklahoma, USA "Baker Line" Project
An existing pick-and-place machine in a coating plant, referred to as the Baker Line, was upgraded from a discontinued ICS500L system to PSI Technics' ARATEC® Positioning Solution System. PSI Technics' Thermo Protection Cooling Case (TPCC®) was installed to protect a SICK DME5000 distance meter from high environmental temperatures of up to 122°F (+50°C).
The Conveyor Technology Planning department (PWG-P/F) at Volkswagen AG, headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany, had commissioned PSI Technics to analyze and evaluate the operation of a vertical material lift in a vehicle body warehouse. The successful cooperation was aimed at developing a new positioning standard for similar vertical lifting systems.
2D/3D SMART camera system for inspecting trolley wheels in Power & Free conveyors (overhead rail chain conveyor) prevents disruptions. The System analyzes the wheels of chain-driven trolleys that are passing through the assembly line to automatically reroute the defective trolley to a service track for repairs. Installation within a few hours during a planned production-free maintenance period.
The aluminum's high heat radiation causes environmental temperatures to rise to up to 176°F (80°C) which led to disruptions of fill-level monitoring in the foundry's casting process, particularly during the summer months. [...] Installation of the TPCC for the thermal protection (thermoelectric cooling) of a SICK DT500 laser sensor without modifying the existing infrastructure.
Robert Bosch GmbH
Positioning system modernization and optimization of five stacker cranes and three shuttle cars that are used for the storage and retrieval of car spare parts. Modernization of existing ICS5000L units and commissioning of the ARATEC Positioning Solution System. Integration of the ARATEC Positioning Solution System into the existing logistics infrastructure while retaining the drives and communication protocols.
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd. (Hactl)
Modernization and optimization of the positioning profile of the stacker cranes in the customer's Box Storage System (BSS) and an Elevating Transfer Vehicle (ETV) in SuperTerminal 1. Replacing the existing ICS5000L/TCS4000 units, commissioning of the new ARATEC Positioning Solution System and the FLP6000EOS Energy Optimizing Software.
Modernization and optimization of a positioning system used in a vehicle body warehouse. Modernization of the existing ICS5000L system and commissioning of PSI Technics’ ARATEC Positioning Solution System with FLP6000EOS Energy Optimizing Software that reduces energy consumption by up to 15% by synchronizing the arrival of the X and Y axes at the desired position. Now, only 7 ARATEC positioning units are needed for the stacker cranes’ 14 axes instead of the previously required 14 ICS5000 units.
Replacing Trimble ICS5000L systems installed on the traveling and retractable axles of 4 stacker cranes with PSI Technics' ARATEC. Replacing the existing Trimble ICS units with a single ARATEC. Easy integration - continued use of installed components such as PLCs, converters and motor drives.
Hanson Pipe & Precast, Lehigh Hanson, Inc., Heidelberg Cement Group
Replacing Trimble ICS5000L and Advanced Skew Control (ASC) units with the ARATEC Positioning Solution System, including the FLP6000ASC Advanced Skew Control to expand the system to support three axes as well as installing the TPCC Thermo Protection Cooling Case (sensitive sensors are protected by the TPCC that extends the life span of sensor diodes).
SKF Logistics Services Belgium
Modernization and optimization of a 1995 high-bay warehouse and stacker cranes. The new positioning system ARATEC was installed and commissioned and a total of 14 Trimble TCS4000 units were replaced. Instead of the previously installed 14 TCS4000 units (one unit per axis) only 7 ARATEC units were needed for the 14 stacker crane axes after the modernization.

The ARATEC's FLP6000AOC software reduces mast oscillations – even of highly dynamic stacker cranes – to a minimum. The test setup shows that the ARATEC Positioning Solution System with enabled FLP6000AOC compensates for mast oscillations in near-real time, even when the oscillations are caused by external disturbances.
