Manufacturers of proximity sensors are among those showcasing new products at the Design & Manufacturing Midwest show, Sept. 22-24, in Rosemont, IL. Sensor manufacturers include Balluff, Banner Engineering, Carlo Gavazzi and Turck, among others.
Trends in new sensor designs aim to make sensors easier to use, lower cost, and more adaptable to various applications, which can decrease the number of sensor models required in the stockroom.
Balluff's UltraFrame Thru-Beam Sensors
Balluff's UltraFrame series is the latest in self-contained thru-beam sensor technology and is designed to solve problems many other sensors cannot. Error-proofing and process monitoring are included. (Booth 921) Read more
