Weld Select Series of Sensors, connectors and accessories

Weld select is an industry proven group of Balluff sensors, connectors and accessories developed to extend sensor life and increase productivity within the harshest of welding environments.

Designed to assist those responsible for automated welding cells, Balluff have identified typical issues and the corresponding Balluff solutions to minimise damage and maximise part quality and production throughput.

Problem - Weld Slag

Hot weld slag, weld debris and weld spatter stick to the sensor face and body causing premature failure of sensors in weld cells.
