What’s in a shadow?

Thanks to four power outputs which can be triggered individually, the CX.I and LXT cameras allow for quick, easy and cost-efficient 3D surface inspections and identify even slightest non-compliance in structure and shape. Read our technical article on shape from shading and find out how it works.

Best-in-class background suppression in miniature format

With its O200 photoelectric miniature sensors, Baumer offers a new dimension in terms of reliability, speed and range for confined machine installation spaces. Thanks to their increased functional reserves, the O200 diffuse sensors with background suppression are the only ones with up to 120 mm sensing distance even on darkest and shiny objects such as mobile phone housings.

    Quality all along the line

    Precise, non-contact inline-measurements by optical distance sensors without process interruptions are vital in high-quality product manufacture. In measurements on demanding surfaces such as galvanized or brushed metal, the OM70 laser distance sensors with line beam shape ensure the required reliability. On structured surfaces or colored edges, point laser measurements cause interference and deliver rather inconsistent and little reliable results.

    Engineering made easy - the world's first photoelectric miniature sensors with CAD data and beam path

    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.

    proTect+ sensors from Baumer go beyond IP standard requirements

    Rough ambient conditions, regular cleaning cycles - these are daily occurrences which sensors are often exposed to in outdoor, hygienic and washdown applications. Proven IP 68 and IP 69K protection make sensors endure such demanding conditions - tested when new. But what if having been in use in tough field environments for several years?

    Image-based, all automated inspection upon blowholes sized 0.4 mm upwards

    At Gruber & Kaja High Tech Metals GmbH, a multi-camera system with multi-stage image evaluation ensures that only cavity-free aluminium die cast parts will be delivered. For this purpose, six GigE cameras of the LX series deliver high-resolution images.
