Intelligent linear feedback – measure positions continuously and without contact

Intelligent linear feedback – measure positions continuously and without contact

The Smart Factory, with its complex production lines, affords high flexibility. It can be difficult to integrate the required process and product quality while demands and specifications are changing continuously.

Keeping a constant eye on the process becomes critical. Sensors in grippers, stamping machines and tool changers play a critical role in the process. They ensure the essential speed of action, precision and flexibility.

The new BMP magnetic field positioning system from Balluff lets you monitor continual work processes reliably and without wear. The magnetic field positioning system helps you stay in control of various processes and ensures simultaneous processing of workpieces all while remaining energy-efficient.

The result is high process reliability and automation quality that works in a variety of applications: whether you need to control assembly in the automobile industry, or quickly adapt to changing formats and process parameters in the packaging industry, the new magnetic field positioning system provides reliable, accurate results.
