Clean and safe production

Is the right juice in the right bottle? Are the cookies the required shade of brown? Has the use-by date been added to the packaging? SensoPart sensors supply reliable answers to these and many other questions. 

For example, when filling drink bottles: The laser scanners from the FT 25-RGO series are specially trained in the detection of (transparent) bottles, while the color sensor FT 55-CM or the vision sensor VISOR® Object Color unequivocally identify whether the bottle lid is in the right position and of the right color. At the end of the production chain, our VISOR® Code Reader scans the packaging and checks the codes and plain text information. Many of our sensors also come in a particularly robust and hermetically-sealed stainless steel housing (IP 69 K), perfect for use in hygiene environments: When an industrial meat processing plant is cleaned with a powerful steam jet at the end of a shift, the sensor can also enjoy a good wash.

Typical applications

Detection of transparent packaging

Due to its low light reflection, transparent packaging such as glass or PET bottles are a challenge for every sensor. For physical reasons, blue instead of the usual red sensor light has proven its worth in such cases: our BlueLight photoelectric proximity sensors with blue LED emitter reliably detect even almost invisible objects - and without a reflector.

Quality check in the filling plant

It is easy to check whether the right lid is on the right bottle based on the color of the lid: The versatile color sensor FT 55-CM enables consistent detection of color even on shiny or curved surfaces, despite fluctuations in shade and distance. Reliable results are therefore still guaranteed with wobbling or vibrating bottles.
