Our intelligent sensor solutions detect objects reliably. From metals to non-metals to bulk materials and liquids: Balluff has the right solution for every object and material. Our contact-free technology also operates wear-free and with absolute reliability under rough ambient conditions.
Confirming bottle fill levels to ensure consistent filling process is a challenge. Balluff fork sensors can handle the challenge with ease. Using Infrared light, this fork sensor can detect all liquids that has over 15% water contents
Objects are detected consistently with the help of our BOS diffuse sensor with background suppression. From long distances and at short distances. In this way, objects are always sure to be detected and can be positioned reliably. This guarantees reliable product flow without backups and makes your processes more efficient.
Do you have operators watching the stack of raw materials for empty? Well, now with Balluff's magnetic cylinder switches your controls system can take note of the cylinder stroke to alert you of empty or almost empty magazines. Your controls system can ensure replenishment is time before the line runs dry.
Color sensors and contrast sensors help ensure the correct orientation of electrodes in the arc furnace. The sensor, well-protected inside the gripper, checks whether the electrode has been gripped correctly by interpreting the color markings on the electrode.
Balluff ultrasonic sensors can detect the sag height of moving sheet materials, enabling control of infeed and outfeed rates. This allows the dancer roller to properly maintain uniform coil tension within the limits of its operational range of motion.
The class-leading Balluff color sensor enables reliable and efficient real-time inspection of plate coatings. The Balluff color sensor can detect the finest nuances of color in a surface finishing process, and is precise and stable even where there are temperature fluctuations in the environment.
Ensure that processes are not stopped because the carrier stack was depleted with Balluff's leading edge technology sensors. Balluff capacitive sensors and micro-optic MICROmote photoelectric sensors reliably monitor stack heights regardless of material, color, surface, or transparency. Capacitive sensors inherently detect any object regardless of material composition in close proximity. Micro-optic photoelectric sensors with miniature housings can be mounted in space limited areas. The remote amplifiers available for both sensing technologies allow for remote setup, multi-functionality, and visual feedback of what the sensor is seeing.
Is the cavity completely filled with the mold material? Our high-pressure-resistant and temperature-resistant capacitive sensors reliably answer this question. These mechanically robust sensors can be integrated directly into the mold. Polished sensing face prevents material from sticking to the sensor.
Balluff's micro-optic MICROmote photoelectric sensors provide a solution for wafer centering. They are available in a screw-in version made of rugged stainless steel housing that will seal to withstand high vacuums. In addition, sensing heads can be customized to fit most applications that are extraordinary small with incorporated vacuum rated cables. These sensors utilize our standard remote amplifiers that provide multiple operating features and various outputs.
