Sensor Solutions in Feeder Technology
Maximum system availability with application stability and flexible sensor solutions.
Benefits We Offer
The automation of assembly processes begins by feeding the individual parts or work pieces. Whether connecting elements, washers, O-rings or plastic parts: the diversity of the elements is as great as their field of application in a wide variety of industries, ranging from automotive through pharmaceutical / medical technology to consumer goods, electronics, food and packaging.
Regardless of the application in question, the task of feeding systems is always to sort the parts as gently as possible and to make them available singly in a defined position for the subsequent process steps. In addition, integrated test stations can ensure that bad parts are ejected from the value stream at an early stage in order to guarantee the best possible material flow.
Drive Control of Vibrating Feeders
The detection of the current vibration frequency and amplitude means that the system always operates at the optimum working point. AlphaProx inductive distance sensors offer many advantages compared to current-controlled systems.
Filling Level Monitoring in the Vibrating Spiral Feeder
Smart Reflect optical sensors by Baumer are suitable for reliable level control in the vibrating spiral feeder. Thanks to their design and intelligent signal processing, they detect objects reliably and without contact, regardless of their color or shape.
