Ultimation Industries Adds New Vision, Laser Marking and Electrical Solutions to Quick-Ship Online Store

New offerings can help companies across many industries improve productivity, quality control and throughput

ROSEVILLE, Mich. (Feb. 23, 2024) – Ultimation Industries has expanded its quick-ship online store to include dozens of vision, laser marking and electrical solutions for industrial applications. This new range of products includes scanners, light curtains, sensors and more that can improve quality control for manufacturers, warehouses, distribution centers and others.

Ultimation is the leading direct-to-consumer conveyor manufacturer, specializing in solving productivity challenges with fast-to-deploy solutions for a broad range of end-markets.

“Since joining the Motion & Control Enterprises family of companies in 2023, we’re able to offer customers new automation and material handling solutions to improve productivity, quality and throughput,” said Kali Wahrman, general manager of E-commerce for Ultimation. “Our on-line store makes it easy for customers to find these new products and get them shipped quickly to their locations.”

Among the new products available are:

  • Photoelectric sensors. Also known as photo-eyes, these through-beam sensors are commonly used for applications such as counting, sorting, inspection, material handling and more. They are an important component in any automated or motorized system. Ultimation also offers stand-alone, retroreflective photo-eye sensors that can be customized with a number of different light sources and optical blocks, and paired with various reflectors depending on the application’s need.

  • Inductive proximity sensors. These sensors detect the presence (or absence) of metallic objects without the need for physical contact. Unlike photoelectric sensors or through-beam sensors, which use light to detect objects, inductive proximity sensors operate based on electromagnetic induction.

  • Laser marking. Laser marking systems create high-contrast marks through oxidation without disrupting the actual material surface. This allows marking of the surface area while leaving it intact. Laser marking is commonly used on titanium and stainless steel parts and is excellent for QR codes, logos, bar codes, and other various types of identification.

  • Cable, fiber optics and accessories. A wide selection of electrical accessories—from cables to reflectors and mounting brackets—are available for vision systems, laser marking systems, barcode scanning systems, and more.

The new product line includes trusted industry brands such as Datalogic, Matrix, DataSensing, Tri-Tronics, and more.

“These versatile solutions are ideal for a huge range of industries and applications, from automotive and aerospace to food and beverage,” said Wahrman.

How We Helped: Customers “Beam” Over Trolley Options

Customers are beaming over the many ways Ultimation products provide creative solutions to storage and other household problems. This latest edition of our “How We Helped” series features customer stories using Beam Trolleys with five-foot Unibilt Enclosed Conveyor Tracks.

Seasonal Solution

Once the snow melts, it’s time to stash winter equipment where it won’t get in the way. One customer used our beam and trolley combo to lift heavy gear into overhead storage.

“Needed a place to store a snowblower and winter tires; this with a hand pulley worked perfectly,” the customer writes.

The cast iron trolley can handle loads up to 250 pounds. The set also includes a five-foot enclosed track for smooth movement of objects.

Workout Wonder

The Ultimation beam trolley and track aren’t the only ones getting a workout in this customer’s home. By mounting the track to the garage ceiling, this punching bag can be moved into position for practice or stowed out of the way when not in use. “Well made,” writes the customer. “I modified it for punching bag. Works great! Super solid!” Six-foot track sections are also available for applications that require longer lengths.

Heavy-duty Hauling

We’re not exactly sure what this customer is moving with an electric hoist winch, but we do know that sturdiness and heavy-duty capacity played a factor in the beam and trolley purchase decision.

“Used this with two trolleys (for additional load capacity), made some brackets and bolted it onto a garage hoist; drilled and put a bolt at each end to retain the trolley in the track,” writes the customer. “Works flawlessly. I’m going to be adding additional track with turn pieces.”

Beam Trolley Hoist Application

Overall, the Ultimation beam trolley combo gets high ratings from Amazon customers for sturdiness (5.0), value for money (4.8) and ease of installment (4.7). This customer sums it up best:

“Unit is very well made and will last a long time. Very heavy duty and made to take heavy loads. Easy to move hoist with beam and trolleys. Glides to smoothly on track, with heavy load attached.”
