Proximity Sensors Enable Object Detection to Determine What is Where
Despite a growing reliance on complex industrial automation technologies, there is still a need for discrete, standalone devices such as buttons, switches and indicators.
Even though new markets and applications are emerging, Will Healy, strategic marketing manager at Balluff, reports that new and existing users still share something in common—they all want lower-cost sensors with more features in smaller sizes.
Much like we humans grope for a light switch in the dark, robots can use today's touch technologies to do that blind search and gently align heavy components into precise assemblies.
