High precision for correct metering

Material handling is about speed, precision and reliability. New compounds require exact metering of various components. Balluff offers you the right products and solutions for a secure and transparent process, even with the high demands on material handling.

Application examples

 

 

  • Continuously keep an eye on the fill level

    Continuously keep an eye on the fill level

    Our high-resolution ultrasonic sensors don't miss a thing: they reliably monitor the level of granulates and powders in silos. The continuous and contact-free measurement technology is virtually immune to dust and dirt. The fill level can be output as needed by an analog signal or with two switching signals as min/max values.

    Features

    • Contact-free
    • Detects even the smallest objects
    • Cubic and cylindrical design
    Continuously keep an eye on the fill level

  • Fill level indicators for continuous material feed

    Fill level indicators for continuous material feed

    To ensure constant material flow the min/max level must be detected continuously in the injection molding machine. Capacitive sensors can perform this task for you: whether in the hopper in direct contact with the materials or through the outer wall, the fill level indicators reliably determine all the values.

    Features

    • For all materials
    • Simple sensor replacement
    • Miniature designs

  • Fast and reliable control in coupling stations

    Fast and reliable control in coupling stations

    To ensure the correct mixture of additives, dyes and granulates in the coupling station Balluff uses autonomous RFID systems. Each coupling is identified and only released if it is connected at the right location. This way, we ensure that the right component is always used.

    Features

    • Rugged
    • Quick and powerful
    • Protection from improper filling
    Fast and reliable control in coupling stations

  • High-temperature rated sensors for drying

    High-temperature rated sensors for drying

    Dry granulate is essential for high-quality plastic parts. Our capacitive stainless steel sensors, resistant to high temperatures, ensure an even feed of the moist granulate into the dryer. They are heat resistant to 250 °C and reliably monitor all levels.

    Features

    • Stainless steel
    • Sensor head made of PTFE
