High precision for correct metering
Material handling is all about speed, precision and reliability. New compounds require exact metering of various components. For the high demands on material handling, Balluff offers the right products and solutions for a secure and transparent process. This way, the purity of the plastic and the product quality are continually ensured. With our autonomous solutions, you will increase the efficiency of the feed, enhance the production quality and obtain legal certainty thanks to the continuous documentation.
Nothing escapes our high-resolution ultrasonic sensors: In silos, they reliably monitor the level of granulates and powder. 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.
To ensure constant material flow, the min/max level must be detected continuously in the injection molding machine. Capacitive sensors will take on this challenge 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.
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.
Dry granulate is essential for high-quality plastic parts. Our capacitive stainless steel sensors are resistant to high temperatures to ensure an even feed of the moist granulate into the dryer. They are heat resistant to 250 °C and reliably monitored all levels.
