Flexibly applying requirements to production systems

Linked production systems consist of standard machines that are connected via intralogistic devices and continuous conveyors. An especially economical concept, since both high-volume parts and lower volume part variants can be produced with low costs and few modifications to the system.

Likewise, the so-called small processing technology should always be current. This is because only then does it monitor loaders reliably, ensure supply of coolant and lubricant and keep track of the fill levels for the hydraulic units. The important thing here is: Layout changes must be easy to implement because they are increasing more due to shorter and shorter product development cycles.

Application examples

  • Monitoring grippers on gantry loaders

    Easy monitoring of gripping operations with magnetic cylinder sensors

    The solution

    In pneumatically operated grippers, pistons are frequently equipped with magnets for detecting the position of the gripper jaws. Therefore, you can easily monitor the gripping operations with our BMF magnetic cylinder sensors.

    And this is how it works: Insert sensors in the mounting groove. Slide to set the desired switching point. Screw in place. Done.

    The features

    • Reliably monitoring gripping operations
    • Easy installation of the sensors

  • Detecting end positions on gantry loaders

    Contactless end position detection with inductive sensors

    The solution

    You can detect end positions of portal loading systems with our BES inductive sensors. To do this, a metal switch lug just needs to be attached at the desired position. The sensors detect them without contact and transfer the correct switching signal to the controller.

    The features

    • Without contact and therefore without wear

  • Controlling positioning of the linear drives

    Magnetic encoder increases the efficiency

    The solution

    Freely selectable target positions enable you to very flexibly use linear drives with integrated position measurement. If you want to increase their performance, our compact BML magnetic encoder is ideal. The position measurement encoder increases the efficiency: from the position drive to the position-controlled axis. Gratifyingly economical.

    The features

    • Increased flexibility via freely selectable target positions
    • Really efficient

  • Checking levels on the hydraulic power unit

    Rugged, precise sensors – perfect for hydraulic fluid fill level detection

    The solution

    To detect the hydraulic fluid fill level, you just need magnetostrictive fill level sensors with floats. Because they are completely encapsulated, they are especially rugged. For the precise sensors, analog sensors and IO-Link are options as interfaces.

    The features

    • Very rugged, because they are completely encapsulated
    • Designed for high measuring rates, very precise
    • Analog signals (0…10 V or 4…20 mA) or IO-Link

  • Detect process fluids and levels continuously or switching

    Maximum flexibility in choosing your monitoring type with ultrasonic level sensors

    The solution

    Depending on the version, ultrasonic level sensors can be used for switching-signal-assisted two-point controllers or for permanent fill level control. In this way, you benefit from maximum flexibility in the choice of the monitoring type.

    The features

    • Switching-signal-assisted two-point controllers or permanent fill level control (depending on the sensor version)
    • Maximum flexibility in selection of the monitoring type

  • Leak detection

    Capacitive sensors mounted on a spacer record even minimal fluid losses

    The solution

    There is hardly a more elegant way to detect leaks than with the installation of capacitive sensors on a spacer that is attached, for example, to the bottom of the collecting container. The sensors record even the slightest fluid losses with absolute reliability.
