6 Axis Industrial Robot Arm
Mobile robot solutions UR10

Universal Robots are flexible, light weight and user friendly 6 axis industrial robots.  They are developed specifically for small and medium enterprises, which has the need for flexible and effective automation that can provide them fast return on investments.  

With the user friendly software, the robotic arm can be easily and quickly programmed to perform new tasks.

As Universal Robots' robotic arms are in compliance with the ISO standard for collaborative robots 10218-1:2006, they are therefore able to operate without the need to install safety fences around them.  The robot has an average pay-back period of as little as six months.

Smart Laser Displacement Sensor
All-in-One 3D Sensor

The Gocator 1300 Series of smart laser displacement sensors ara the next generation of high speed (32kHz) distance measuring devices from LMI Technologies.
Gocator 1300 3D sensors
Ideal for non-contact measurement, Gocators are simple to network and integrate.  These sensors are ruggedly designed to handle industrial applications and are ready to use for your most demanding on-line inspection applications, right out of the box.  Gocator's small footprint makes it ideal for fitting into tight spaces and mounting onto robotic arms.
  • 32kHz scan rate
  • Measure at high resolution over ranges from 40 mm to 2m
  • Easily scalable to multi-sensor system
  • Gigabit Ethernet data delivery
  • Industrial IP67 rated housing


Mid Range Distance Sensors 

Larger than life performance - flexible measurement and detection up to 35 m

Dx35 sensors


The SICK Dx35 family of distance sensors combine maximum reliability, measuring capabilities, flexibility and the perfect price-performance ratio in a very compact housing.  In addition to an IO-Link function, which all the devices have, the Dx35 family also offers sensors with analog and switching output or the option of two switching outputs as well as infrared or red light in laser class 1 or 2.


  • Maximum reliability and immunity to ambient light 
  • Measuring range of 0.05 m to 12 m for natural objects or 0.2 m to 35 m on reflective tape
  • Lightning fast, adjustable response time
  • Excellent glare-resistance and ignores background reflections
  • Repeatability: 0.5 mm to 5 mm
