Solutions for your unique requirements
Balluff's vision solutions enable early detection of production errors, perform optical checks, detect and decode objects, and assist robots in position finding. This ensures maximum quality and flexibility in your production process.
Identifying objects through decoding is essential for many tasks: for uninterrupted tracking of products and assembly tasks in production control, in controlling replenishment processes in kanban systems, or for optical detection of tools. Our product line for optical identification includes stationary barcode readers like our vision sensor, mobile handheld readers, and accessories for standard and industrial grade applications. This hardware enables optical detection and reliable verification of all common 1D and 2D barcodes as well as stacked codes, and they're easy to use.
At the end of the packaging process, you check plain text on the packaging and verify the printed barcode as part of quality assurance. Manufacturing and expiration dates, and serial numbers, need to be quickly and reliably verified. BVS vision solutions from Balluff meet these needs and more.
When raw products are delivered, the first step is to identify them. This is done using stacked linear barcodes called PDF417 codes, located on the products. Unfortunately, these codes are frequently not at the same height, making automated scanning difficult. Using the Balluff handheld BVS HS-P reader gets the job done simply.
RFID and barcodes make it possible to identify samples and racks and clearly match the recorded data. This increases uptime by letting you skip unnecessary inspection stations. And a high rate of uptime means high productivity.
Solutions for product and process control
Balluff vision solutions enable efficient production by providing reliable support in product and process control. They let you detect processing errors early, enable fast corrections and prevent scrap batches so that your costs are reduced.
Checking seals in the beverage industry requires that many different features be inspected at the same time. The BVS Vision Sensor does just this to ensure reliable monitoring.
When several monitoring functions are required at the same time or in quick succession, a BVS vision sensor from Balluff is the ideal choice. It can be flexibly adapted to your processes, and changes can even be made in-process. A single sensor is all you need to reliably monitor your production.
Reliable reading under challenging conditions is possible through the use of color codes and barcodes on coils and other products. The Balluff BVS vision sensor uses these markings to check whether slabs and coils are correctly assigned. And it reads codes regardless of their position.
The Balluff SmartCamera detects process-related cracks in formed parts immediately after the part is produced. It sees even the smallest irregularities and reliability checks bore holes and punch-outs too. This 100% inspection means you can avoid follow-on costs from rework and complaints.
The user interface is operator-friendly and simple to configure.
The BVS-E series Universal Vision Sensor checks difficult seams to verify that the sealer has covered the entire length of the joint. Its extraordinary flexibility make it a match for other demanding quality checks, like contours, gray levels or widths.
Add an LED ring light to provide increased, shadow-free illumination for an even more reliable inspection. An optional process monitor makes it easy to visualize inspection results.
The SmartCamera lets you check all finished parts including their production steps: Are they complete and without flaws? Are the size, distance and position correct? And are they correctly aligned?
The best part — All the camera's tasks are simple to teach.
Our SmartCamera is ideal for identifying the delivered parts for different vehicle models on assembly lines. It reliably reads all common 1D and 2D codes on parts including bumpers and shafts and ensures that the right semi-finished parts are assembled. The SmartCamera is simple to set up and operate from a web browser.
Balluff's industrial cameras are ideal for various inspection and monitoring tasks in connector assembly. Whether for location control in feeding, completeness checking or for final quality inspection, they see even the smallest differences. They check bore holes and punch-outs absolutely reliably. And setup is easy, using our powerful controllers and intuitive operating software.
