We know what is needed for machine builders to lead
When it comes to machine builders, the one in the lead is the one whose offerings can closely match the requirements of their customers. Both in size scaling and in functionality.
To take advantage of these market opportunities economically, individual solutions are increasingly devised from modules and assemblies.
Such mechatronic components, which are made up of actuators and integrated sensors, must optimally perform their tasks even in limited space conditions. They are intelligent enough to adapt to very diverse installation situations and machine dimensions. In this way, they ensure valuable benefits for you in competition.
Tools are typically clamped via conical geometries. With three BES inductive sensors, three states can be queried free of contact and thus free of wear: Unclamped, clamped without tool and clamped with tool.
This form of clamping distance monitoring is especially suitable for larger strokes because the sensors are installed at a defined distance from each other.
If a conical outer geometry is present on the tool holder, movements transverse to the sensor axis can also be detected via a BAW inductive distance sensor.
Such an arrangement is considered the classic solution for continuously measured clamping distance monitoring.
By linear position measurement, a clamping distance monitoring can be realized even with rotation of the clamping mechanics.
In this context, the BIP inductive positioning system detects the position of a metal cam that moves laterally past the sensor.
Depending on the requirement, we provide you with measurement systems having different stroke lengths.
If sensors and actuators are to be installed on the swivel table, BIC inductive couplers can adopt the plugless transmission of power and signals.
As hermetically encapsulated contact-free slip-ring transmitters, they work especially reliably and are especially robust.
The BML magnetic encoder from Balluff is best suited for precise rotary angle detection.
By combining sensor and actuator in one assembly, it is especially compact. Thanks to its compatibility with all standard linear encoder inputs, it is easily integratable in your application.
Pressure-rated inductive sensors from Balluff are best suited for monitoring the clamping position of the hydraulic piston on swivel clamping elements.
Their rugged designs with many variants very reliably detect the position on block cylinders.
