Solutions for logistics

ifm is the right partner when it comes to improving performance, quality and safety, increasing speed and flexibility, reducing errors and ensuring real-time monitoring of equipment and processes in the transport of goods. In short: When you need a partner who is always “Close to you”!

Logistics means moving goods and persons. In many business sectors, logistics refers to how resources and products are handled and moved along the supply chain. Logistics means more and more speed, flexibility, efficiency, performance, safety, quality and monitoring. This is a growing need for both the companies stocking, distributing and transporting goods and for the manufacturing companies. It is becoming increasingly important for manufacturing companies that products and components are moved quickly and reliably before, during and after the production process.

One enormous and stable change observed in recent years is that the need for automation and digitalisation in the movement of goods is constantly increasing.

To support companies in reaching the targets mentioned above, ifm offers a wide range of products and solutions. Our company has been investing in classic and new technologies of the logistics industry for many years:

  • photoelectric, inductive, magnetic, ultrasonic, pressure and temperature sensors
  • controllers and displays
  • IO-Link masters and splitter boxes
  • bus systems AS-i
  • passive connection technology
  • RFID devices
  • encoders
  • 1D, 2D and 3D vision systems
  • vision sensors
  • inclination sensors
  • evaluation systems and power supplies
  • software
  • condition monitory through vibration technology
  • safety and measuring light grids

... all these products, solutions and technologies are at the disposal of our customers.
