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.
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.
Sensors for detecting color and contrast support the positioning of electrodes in the arc furnace. The sensor, which is protected in the gripper, checks whether it has been gripped correctly using color markings on the electrode – with absolute reliability and at various temperatures.
BUS ultrasonic sensors from Balluff are precision all-rounders. They detect sheets on rolls and coils and regulate the correct material feed on the dancer roll according to the sheet sag. In this way they ensure the correct roller drive and that the sheet tension is always perfect.
Fulfilling your highest quality requirements: the BFS color sensor from Balluff is unrivaled in inspecting sheet and plate finishes. It detects even the slightest color nuances and reliably registers whether a sheet leaves the plant polished or unpolished. Even temperature fluctuations won't keep it from correctly and reliably distinguishing the finished pieces.
