Mechanical protection

Extending the life of product performance in harsh industrial conditions

Mechanical protection

Balluff protection hardware accommodates a wide variety of applications, impact, cleaning or debris. These accessories are geared towards extending the life of automation products performance in harsh industrial conditions involving chemical attack, debris accumulation, shock/vibration/impact, and high temperatures.

When working in different kinds of environments, it is important to take a muli-angle approach to designing the application. In existing installations, it is essential to consider all the reasons for failures before determining a solution.

When determining how much protection is needed, you still have to consider these typical questions: what is being exposed and why is the current installation failing.

Other common questions to consider are:

  • What available space do I have?
  • Is there physical contact damage?
  • Can I change the tooling in any way?

Balluff offers one of the widest varieties of accessories specifically designed for harsh environments.
