Increase the performance of your machines and solve your challenges.
Skilled operator shortages require a higher level of automation and operator assistance functions. High performing sensors support the increase of productivity and process flexibility. The material handling industry  requires always reliable and performing sensor solutions

To reliably advance machine functions, it is key to select the optimum sensor solution. We guide you to the right sensor solution for material handling application fields like stability control, load monitoring, and fluid handling. These application fields apply to many different machines such as aerial working platforms, scissor lifts, loader cranes, mobile cranes, telehandler, tower-cranes, and others.


Sensor solutions guide

Baumer sensors give required feedback for determining position, angle, inclination and bending to manage boom vibrations to bring people and material where it needs to be. Strain measurements are employed for determining the mechanical load in vehicles. Reliable hydraulic system operation is ensured by fluid monitoring with temperature, pressure and level sensors.
