Powerful, smart sensors and multifunctional solutions are the precondition for increasing the overall system efficiency (OEE). Smart sensors from Balluff provide optimal support because they not only fulfill a primary measurement task, but also provide up to 16 additional condition monitoring features for self-diagnosis and the environmental condition at the installation site.Read more
In “classical” industrial automation (factory automation) standardized sensors control the manufacturing processes. The automation of laboratory tasks (lab automation) demands additional requirementsRead more
All sensors of our Smart Automation and Monitoring System SAMS do have temperature measurement on board. Why you should utilize this smart sensor function in your application, I will explain in this postRead more
The P-F curve is often mentioned in condition monitoring and predictive maintenance discussions. “P-F” refers to the interval between the detection of a potential failure (P) and the occurrence of a functional failure (F).Read more
Increasing the efficiency of machines and plants requires powerful, multifunctional solutions that provide data on the machine condition in addition to the machine control. With the condition monitoring information obtained from this the performance of each machine and thus of the entire plant can be optimizedRead more
The Corona pandemic created a huge demand for Covid testing equipment. To ramp up such a production volume can only be realized by the usage of automated production with machinery equipment. Also most of the components for lab analysis are produced in an automated manner along with the performance of lab analysis processes.
For the production of devices for blood analysis or for diagnosis of tissue samples as well as for the assembly of other medical devices automated processes increase both efficiency and reliability.Read more
Lab equipment assists diagnostic activities. It often consists of high tech systems which use a variety of components. Manufacturers of equipment often qualify standard sensors (“catalogue goods”) or modifications of standard sensors as component purchasing within a defined supplier management.Read more
Washing machines, dryers, refrigerators and other large household appliances are manufactured in complex, highly automated manufacturing processes.
But even in predominantly manual production and assembly processes, individual process steps can also be effectively automated. One example is the quality inspection of the drive belt assembly in a washing machine production.
