Just-in-time delivery guaranteed
Whether it be interiors, air conditioning, wheels, tires or exhaust equipment - the automotive industry relies on these assemblies and systems. As an external supplier you take on a key role for the manufacturer. Every product must be in the right place at the right time and of the right quality. Only when this is ensured is efficient automotive production possible.
Our sensors and systems provide reliable help and contribute to the quality and on time delivery of products. Our solutions increase the availability of equipment and increase productivity. This optimizes production process and ensures just-in-time delivery.
To reliably and verifiably document individual work steps in modular handling and assembly system, we offer RFID read/write heads designed specifically for compact transfer systems. Since they can be installed without additional holders, you save installation space while enjoying all the benefits of non-contact identification – especially when you use our corner data carriers. These can be read and written from two sides.
Our rugged pressure sensors ensure the correct pressure of the hydraulic fluid in injection molding and contribute, for example, to perfect closing of the platen. Securely protected in the stainless steel housing, they handle reliable pressure monitoring in the hydraulic cylinder. And using IO-Link, they relay their values to the controller and let it readjust with precision. Our pressure sensors thereby support high production quality.
Our Mold-ID system ensures optimal utilization of your injection molding tools because the automated management of the tools creates transparency and allows you to track their use. This enables condition-based maintenance which in turn reduces scrap and allows you to plan your inspections. You can view the tool condition directly on the machine.
Balluff opens up optimal solutions for every process step related to the heating press: optical sensors reliably detect the black rubber, pressure sensors reliably monitor process media such as hydraulic fluids, and high-temperature rated inductive sensors monitor end positions at little cost. Our technology withstands the harsh conditions of vulcanizing the green tires, and overcomes heat and pressure, aggressive fluids such as releasing agents or special hydraulic oils.
To withstand weld splatter, shocks and mechanical loads when welding exhaust systems, Balluff offers especially rugged sensors and cables.
Our inductive sensors with a stainless steel sensor face can be installed directly where the action is. And special cables made of pure silicon or PTFE are the right choice for welding environments. Silicon-free versions are also available.
Our UHF systems ensure tracking of all goods movements, bulk detection of many objects or targeted identification of individual objects. And requirements like just-in-time or just-in-sequence can be met easily.
Select from a wide spectrum of UHF data carriers ranging from rugged tags for harsh conditions to self-adhesive labels.
We enable a simple and economical network topology for robot-assisted automation tasks.
IO-Link sensor hubs collect the sensor signals in the gripper and pass them on to the controller. If you connect them to a single 16 × IO-Link master, it can bundle the signals from up to 272 sensors and pass them on to the controller. This reduces wiring effort and expense, reduces weight, and lowers your costs.
