In process automation, safety and reliability are of critical importance. To ensure this requires precise and robust sensors and measuring instruments that guarantee perfect measurement, control, monitoring, or fault analysis.
The new laser distance sensor families OM20 and OM30 with IO-Link are perfectly suited to continue the trend towards more efficient, compact machines and systems without any compromise regarding the sensor performance in optical distance measurement applications.
The Baumer optoelectronic sensors O200 are the first miniature sensors on the market to offer 3D CAD data with integrated beam path. This saves valuable time in the engineering process, which previously was quite an effort when integrating the beam path from data sheets.
Inline quality controls play an increasingly important role in the production process. They reduce downtimes and reject rates, thus ensuring lower costs and high customer loyalty. Up to now, such solutions could usually only be realized through complex projects and thus high costs. The OXM200 2D multi-tool profile sensors now offer the possibility to check a large number of process steps quickly and easily.
The automated coordinate alignment of the robot-compatible VeriSens XF/XC900 vision sensors from Baumer convinced the expert jury of the inspect award 2021. Out of nine finalist products in the online voting, the sensors were awarded first place in the category Vision. The award granted by the publisher Wiley-VCH every year honors the most innovative products in the field of industrial image processing.
Baumer is expanding its 10 GigE cameras of the LX series with four new models that perfectly support applications with very high resolution and image quality demands for the reliable detection of even the minutest details and deviations. At the same time, they have a very high frame rate for increased throughput.
The renowned research institute NCCR DFAB is part of the ETH Zurich and elaborates on concrete processing solutions using 3D printing robots. In close cooperation with the sensor manufacturer Baumer they implemented a reliable solution for pressure monitoring in robot-supported 3D printing. The precise PBMN Flush pressure sensor eases operation of the printing robot but also ensures 3D printing quality and precise dosing in the medium flow.
