Like many other sectors, the plastics processing industry is under growing cost pressure, while the trend for more frequent batch changes with smaller quantities is causing increasingly complex process cycles. SensoPart sensors enable widespread automation of production and quality assurance processes, and help sharpen a company’s competitive edge.
Applications in the plastics sector are diverse: BlueLight photoelectric proximity sensors reliably detect small black parts, such as transparent PET bottles; miniature color sensors from the FT 25-C series sort plastic parts on vibrating conveyors by color; and image-processing vision sensors from the VISOR® series identify manufacturing defects, such as short-filled moulds, burrs, color streaks, surface defects or faulty insert moulding. Early error detection during the manufacturing of injection moulded parts avoids complex reworking and costly rejects.
The following application examples show you the possible uses of our products in practice.
In many manufacturing processes in different sectors, such as in the packaging industry, transparent pouches or bags must be reliably detected with the help of a sensor.
The detection of trays on conveyor belts is an important task in many industrial processes. It is important that the trays are recognized quickly and reliably with the help of a sensor in order to control further processing. The trays can be different colors and transparent
When manufacturing ball bearings, it is vital to know that the bearing has the full number of balls. The aim of the application is to inspect a ball bearing after assembly to ensure it is complete.
Throughout the production process, a large quantity of data is generated that has to be monitored and checked. The operator must be able to consult, manage and evaluate this data easily in order to identify and implement any necessary modifications to the process.
