High precision for correct 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 you 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, enhance the production quality and obtain legal certainty thanks to the continuous documentation.
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 moulding machine must be continuously detected. This is reliably achieved with Balluff capacitive sensors: Whether in the hopper in direct contact with the materials or through the outer wall, the fill level indicators reliably determine all the values.
For all materials
Simple sensor replacement
Balluff relies on autonomous RFID systems to correctly mix additives, dyes and granulates in coupling stations. Each coupling is identified and only released if it is connected at the right location. This way, we ensure that the right component is always used.
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.
