Adaptable Level Measurement with Ultrasonic Technology

Reliable Detection Regardless of Interfering Components and in Confined Spaces The Application Liquids and free-flowing solids are held in tanks or similar containers for processing. To ensure that processes can run without interruption, replenishment must correspond to consumption and be triggered in a timely manner. Continuous monitoring of the container level provides the consumption data and limit values for this purpose. The...

Reliable Detection in PCB Production with ML100 Sensor

Convergent Beam Sensor Detects Different Kinds of PCBs The Application The PCB (printed circuit board) industry forms the backbone of the electronics industry. Almost all electronics products contain some form of PCB. These boards connect various components together with copper traces. Various types of machines are needed to process and move the PCBs. Some examples of these machines are conveyors, buffers, marking machines,...

Reliable Optical Identification in HighTemperature Environments

The Application Extreme production conditions prevail in paint drying systems used in the automotive industry. High temperatures, cyclical temperature changes, and the effects of dust and paint place tough demands on materials and technology. Freshly painted chassis are transported to the drying system on skids. The chassis must be reliably identified despite the extreme environmental conditions. The Goal Normal paper labels cannot be used due to the...

Automatic Component Inspection in Car Body Manufacturing

SmartRunner Matcher Monitors Line Profiles The Application In the automotive industry, components are welded together in robotic welding cells during the production of car bodies. Prefabricated metal sheets are manually inserted into the robot’s gripper. However, sheets may be incomplete or faulty. If an incomplete or faulty metal sheet is used, the entire car body will have to be scrapped. Errors made during this...

Inductive Safety Sensors Reliably Detect Scissor Lift Position

The Application In the production lines of the automotive industry, man and machine work closely in many places, such as along conveyor lines. Scissor lifts are used in various stages of production, from body construction to final assembly. They move car bodies to the required processing heights. This enables workers to perform tasks ergonomically and, for example, assemble the interior fittings, seats, rims, and bumpers according to customer requirements. The Goal The movement of...

VB14N-T Barcode Scanner Ensures Optical Identification in Deep-freeze Warehouses

In deep-freeze warehouses that handle frozen food products, goods are transported on trays. The Application With its compact design, the VB14NT barcode scanner can be used in limited spaces. In the food industry, an unbroken cold chain is essential for product quality. National food laws generally require the storage temperature of frozen products to be lower than 18 °C throughout...

Ultrasonic Sensors for Fail-Safe Bottle Detection in Filling Machines

Reliable Container Detection Under Vibration and High Throughput Conditions The Application Filling lines in the beverage industry operate at high throughput rates and are therefore highly automated. The situation is similar in the detergent and cosmetics industries, where numerous products are filled into various containers. The filled bottles pass through bottle aisles on their way to the packaging station. At the final...
