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.
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.
Two product families, many possible solutions: The high-performance ultrasonic sensors U300 and U500/ UR18 from Baumer offer a multitude of integrated functions and adjustment options. These allow the sensor to be optimally adjusted to the application. A new double sheet detection function has now been implemented in the through beam sensor of these series.
The new LXT cameras with integrated JPEG image compression allow image capture with very high resolution and speed via the widely available and easy-to-use GigE interface. This means, for example, that 500 frames/s with full HD or more than 1500 frames/s with SVGA can be used without any time limitations.
