profiPLUS 50 – smart-joints/adapter plates

Smallest mounting dimensions – also for attachment system profiles. In order to connect the profiPLUS 50 to small assembly areas and machines in an optically elegant way, we have developed smart joints. Due to the smallest fastening dimensions it can be attached to the machine body directly. For attachment to engineering profiles e.g. from ITEM, Bosch or similar there is a small adapter plate that matches the shape of the joint. For the adaptation of existing drilling patterns of competition, we offer a customized universal adapter plate with desired drilling pattern. So we can adapt any existing machine drilling. For…

Long-range photoelectric sensor counts shrink-wrapped carton packs

During high-volume confectionery packaging operations, conveyors deliver stacked cartons to shrink-wrapping stations. At each station, a wrapping machine encloses a stack in heat-shrink film and an infrared oven shrinks the film to form a sealed pack of carton. A long-distance through-beam photoelectric sensor, mounted beside the conveyor, senses the presence of each pack as it leaves the oven and signals a plant-wide control system to increment the production throughput totals. Customer Values Reliable long-range item counting on a non-contact basisImproved data accuracy arising from real-time, error-free pack detectionIncreased productivity as stability alarm flags preventative-maintenance needsSingle sensor accommodates a range of…
