Balluff has introduced its SuperShorty inductive sensor line specifically developed for compact applications such as robotic end effectors.
Light-weight and miniature sensors are a requirement for robotic end effectors, where weight and installation space have to be carefully accounted for. Balluff's SuperShorties are extremely lightweight, down to 0.7 grams, with diameters as small as 6.5mm and lengths as short as 6mm.
Balluff SuperShorties have self-contained electronics, and are produced in stainless steel housings.
Balluff products for OEM and factory floor solutions are used to control, regulate, automate, assemble, position, and monitor manufacturing, assembly, and packaging sequences for industries including material handling, metalworking, automotive, plastics, aerospace, and electronics.
