Packaging, Foods, Beverages, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics

Holistic solutions for filling and packaging

Packaging, Foods, Beverages, Pharmaceuticals and Cosmetics

The packaging, foods, beverages, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries are characterized by strict requirements and demanding ambient conditions. In order to make the production processes as efficient and economical as possible, flexible automation solutions are needed. This is precisely what our sensors do. Balluff components ensure high cycle rates, fast processes and absolute reliability under all conditions of use.

Balluff is very much at home in these sectors. Our components easily withstand difficult environments, meet the strictest hygiene requirements and provide minimal tolerances. We offer you modularity, flexibility, security and transparency. From product delivery to the finished packaged product: You benefit from the highest equipment uptime and maximum efficiency in the entire process.

Packaging industry: Palletizing and depalletizing systems

Tailor made and efficient even for batch size 1

Packaging machines demand absolute accuracy and great flexibility. Both for high production rates and in small batches down to 1.

Here we offer you our professional support. Whether it is for the reliable flow of material with track-and-trace, the correct handling of different packages or the reliable handling of the packaging material;with Balluff sensor and system solutions you can reliably achieve the desired flexibility and speed.

Palletizing and depalletizing of boxes and cartons demands absolute accuracy and great flexibility. At the same time, the largest possible quantities need to be processed. Use the professional support of Balluff. Whether this be for the reliable flow of material with track-and-trace, the correct handling of different packages or the reliable handling of the packaging material. At the same time our sensors also ensure exact positioning for an uninterrupted packaging process.


Packaging industry: Pillow bag and cardboard packaging machines

Tailor made and efficient even for batch size 1

Packaging machines demand absolute accuracy and great flexibility. Both for high production rates and in small batches down to 1.

Here we offer you our professional support. Whether it is for the reliable flow of material with track-and-trace, the correct handling of different packages or the reliable handling of the packaging material;with Balluff sensor and system solutions you can reliably achieve the desired flexibility and speed.

Pillow bag and cardboard packaging machines involve a large product variety, resulting in the need for maximum flexibility. The machines produce many different pillow and packaging shapes, due to new packaging concepts needing to grab consumers' attention. The lot quantities become ever smaller and entail frequent format changes. The required flexibility and speed are reliably achieved with Balluff products.


Food industry: Meat processing

Guaranteed high hygienic standards

The food industry is subject to the strictest hygiene and quality regulations. Only if these high standards are already built into the machine design can the desired high quality of the final product be achieved. Balluff offers many sensors and system solutions for hygienic applications which ensure the highest reliability and flexibility especially in challenging conditions.

Furthermore, cleanliness has a high priority in the meat processing industry as well. Only if hygiene standards are taken into account when the machine is designed can the desired high level of quality of the end product be ensured. We offer a wide range of sensors for hygienic areas that provide the greatest reliability even in harsh application conditions.


Food industry: Dairy

Guaranteed high hygienic standards

The food industry is subject to the strictest hygiene and quality regulations. Only if these high standards are already built into the machine design can the desired high quality of the final product be achieved. Balluff offers many sensors and system solutions for hygienic applications which ensure the highest reliability and flexibility especially in challenging conditions.

The dairy industry is subject to the strictest hygiene and quality regulations. This is why a real-time capable and transparent production process with modular production lines is indispensable for efficient production. Only in this way, can traceability and flexibility be ensured. Our comprehensive product portfolio enables you to optimally configure your equipment and machines for meeting the demands of your customers.


Pharmaceutical industry: Solve many packaging tasks flexibly and reliably

Pharmaceutical applications demand high reliability, compact enclosures, minimal measuring tolerances and the ability to flexibly integrate sensors into a system. Along with these requirements come a variety of tasks. From positioning to feeding to joining and marking to sealing liquid or solid materials. At the same time the sensors need to handle many different kinds of packaging including ampules, bottles, cans or blister packs, with consistent quality of course.


Beverage industry: For high cycle rates and a fast, efficient bottling process

Filling plants are characterized by high technical demands and challenging environmental conditions. Sensors from Balluff are ideal for these situations. They ensure that beverages are filled aseptically and sterile, bottles are properly sealed and correctly labeled. Balluff components enable high cycle rates as well as fast and efficient filling processes.


High-Pressure Washdown and Hygiene: Hygienic and high-quality IP69K sensors for all washdown applications

Easy to clean and hygienically flawless machines and equipment have the top priority, whether foods beverages, pharmaceuticals or cosmetics are delivered, produced, processed or packaged. For the installed sensors this means: They must have a washdown design, so that they can for example withstand frequent and intensive cleaning and disinfecting cycles in an injection molding environment.

And not only that – if the sensors come into direct contact with the sensitive or perishable foods, they must have foods compatible hygienic design. Only then can they prevent affecting the taste or tolerability of the food or even prevent contamination.

These sensitive areas require enclosure and control cabinet systems that are resistant to bacteria and other harmful organisms. Only if the hygienic design is taken into account when the machine is designed can the desired high quality of the final product be assured. IP69K sensors from Balluff with "Washdown plus" are especially tightly sealed and highly reliable under extreme conditions of use, meeting the Ecolab requirements. They are resistant to cleaning agents and corrosion and perfectly protected from water, and with a rating of at least 1000 cleaning cycles our products far exceed the requirements for IP69K.

What we offer you

Whether in direct contact with foods, with high pressure cleaning, or in the non-food area: Depending on where you use the components in the machine, they must meet various requirements. We offer the right solution for every requirement – from IP69K sensors to the right cables. These are resistant to cleaning agents and corrosion, have the highest IP69K rating and are therefore highly reliable under extremely harsh conditions. In addition our components meet the requirements for food safety promulgated by institutions such as EHEDG, FDA and 3-A. Hygienic design and high-quality processing are at the top of our priorities.

  • Capacitive fill level sensors for media contact with foam and build-up compensation, optional with IO-Link

  • Magnetostrictive linear position sensors for level measurement, with rugged stainless steel housing for especially long service life in extreme environments

  • Photoelectric fork sensors for liquid detection for fast and reliable monitoring without readjustment

  • I/O modules in rugged enclosures for reliable and error-free signal transmission
