Film Tear and Fill Level Monitoring in Packaging Systems with Ultrasonic Distance Sensor

Colorful, glossy or transparent films are used in packaging plants to ensure that products are airtight and securely packed. These are conveyed by rolls and attached around the objects. Ultrasonic distance sensors monitor the roll diameter to ensure continuous material flow. Two independent switching outputs signal when there is little film left on the roll and when the roll is empty and needs to be replaced. In addition, the sensor checks whether the film is open or torn.

Distance Sensors

Distance sensors are suitable for the detection, differentiation and measurement of objects by means of ultrasound. Different operating modes, such as synchronous, multiplex or through beam mode, can be set via the display or centrally via IO-Link, and different output variants and designs enable a wide range of possible applications.
