Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, will unveil the DST-1 sensor from Fife at ICE Europe in Munich, Germany, March 12-14, and at IDEA in Miami, FL, March 26-28.
“The DST-1 utilizes state-of-the-art technology to guide the most challenging materials that other sensors simply can’t recognize,” says Shomari Head, global product mgr.-Fife Guiding. “We have put it through its paces in our lab and been able to successfully guide materials we never dreamed possible.”
Using multiple cameras for object-based recognition, the DST-1 is able to guide a wide range of materials from mesh to wire gauge and frayed materials that infrared, ultrasonic, line guide and other optical sensors have traditionally failed.
“This year marks Fife’s 80th anniversary,” adds Greg Jehlik, CEO of Maxcess. “During our storied history we have introduced a number of technological breakthroughs to the guiding industry, and the DST-1 is no exception.”
