Position Monitoring of Crown Caps with Fork Sensors
In the beverages industry, bottles must be sealed after the filling process. Crown caps or screw caps are used for this purpose. To ensure that all caps are correctly applied to bottles, fork sensors check that they are present. Thanks to their collimated laser light beam, they also precisely detect transparent objects down to a size of just a few micrometers – even at high speeds. As checking is often carried out in wet areas, the watertight housing (IP69K) is made of corrosion-free stainless steel 316L from the InoxSens series.
