Withstand extreme loads in injection molding
In injection molding, sensors need to withstand tremendous loads. If they fail early on, the downtime comes at a high price. High-quality Balluff sensors such as displacement transducers, high-pressure-resistant and temperature-resistant capacitive sensors and pressure sensors ensure continuity. Balluff sensors are continuously optimized in our accredited in-house laboratory through Highly Accelerated Life Tests (HALT). We therefore expose the products to extreme loads during development and eliminate possible weaknesses. The durable and extremely precise technology of our sensors optimizes the availability of your systems by eliminating downtime. Its precision makes products of the highest quality possible.
With the help of a high-precision magnetostrictive linear position sensor from Balluff, you can precisely monitor the closing motion of the platen. A gentle mold closure reduces wear and extends your mold's useful life.
Our BIW inductive positioning system ensures that your molds are quickly filled. Because the high sampling frequency and repeat accuracy measure the travel of the injection axis precisely and reliably. You can exactly calibrate the injection profile, for example, to produce high-quality, thin-wall parts.
Inductive distance sensors from Balluff ensure continuous monitoring of the tie bar extension in the process. They are insensitive to contamination and provide optimal linearity as well as high repeat accuracy.
To optimally adjust core pulls, our mini magnetic field sensors are ideal. These ensure that the core pull is at the required end position. They detect the position directly at the hydraulic block cylinder. Alternately you can also use high-temperature rated sensors.
Perfect closure of the clamping plates requires the correct pressure. Reliable pressure monitoring in the hydraulic cylinder is handled by a rugged pressure sensor in a stainless steel housing. Equipped with IO-Link, the pressure sensors relay their values directly to the controller and thus let it readjust with precision.
Our high-pressure and high temperature rated capacitive sensors reliably check whether the cavity is fully filled and the RTM is completed. They offer great mechanical stability, e.g. for lightweight construction, and can be integrated directly into the tool. Their specially polished surface prevents plastics and composites from sticking.
