High precision for accurate metering
Material handling is all about speed, precision and reliability. New compounds require exact metering of various components. For the high demands on material handling, Balluff offers the right products and solutions for a secure and transparent process. This way, the purity of the plastic and the product quality are continually ensured. With our autonomous solutions, you will increase the efficiency of the feed, and enhance the production quality.
Our high-resolution ultrasonic sensors do not miss a thing: In silos, they reliably monitor the level of granulates and powder. The continuous and contact-free measurement technology is virtually immune to dust and dirt. The fill level can, if necessary, be output by an analog signal or with two switching signals as min./max. values.
A continuous material feed is essential. To guarantee a continuous material feed, the min/max fill level in the injection molding machine must becontinuously detected. This is reliably achieved by Balluff capacitive sensors: Whether in the hopper in direct contact with the materials or through the outer wall, the fill level sensors reliably detect the level of material.
Detects all type of materials
Simple sensor replacement
Balluff RFID systems help prevent errors in the mixing process. To ensure an accurate mix of additives, dyes and granulates, RFID tags are fixed to the coupling and the material is verified by RFID readers prior to transfer. Each coupling is identified and the material is released only if it is connected at the right location.
Dry granulate is essential for high-quality plastic parts. Our capacitive stainless steel sensors resistant to high temperatures ensure an even feed of the moist granulate into the dryer. They are heat resistant to 250 °C and reliably monitor all levels.
