Georg Sahm GmbH & Co. KG introduced the latest generation of its BoDo technology, BoDo II, at the Techtextil North America show (Aug. 23-25) in Raleigh, North Carolina. This latest generation of SAHM’s bobbin doffer provides mobile, fully automatic doffing and transport for bobbin and tube handling in winding applications. The pick-up of bobbins at the winding machine, as well as set-up with empty tubes, is performed entirely automatically – just like the transport of bobbins and their delivery to freely defined locations in the production workflow. Working with centralized fleet management software, BoDo II robots operate as genuine team players and enable continuous 24/7 operation. The technology provides exact positioning, free radius of movement, network integration for intelligent fleet management, and safe and secure 360-degree environment detection ensuring safe operation in conjunction with people, vehicles and machines.
