Baumer is expanding the toolbox for precise edge measurement

New edge sensors OE60 and OE40 as well as the smart 2D profile sensors of the OX series are new additions to the high-performance Baumer portfolio for reliable edge measurement at different precision levels and space conditions.

Baumer is expanding the toolbox for precise edge measurement

The Baumer toolbox for precise edge measurement now has high-performing new additions. With product innovations OE60 and OE40, sensor expert Baumer again sets new standards, this time in the field of automated edge measurement. Best example: OE60. The sensor enables edge measurements with 1 µm repeat accuracy at a distance of up to 100 mm. This way it is the most precise edge sensor in its class. Together with easy-to-integrate edge sensor OE40 and the smart 2D profile sensors of the OX series, the expanding Baumer portfolio provides solutions for numerous applications. A typical cross-industry application for edge sensors is web edge control. More applications are positioning as well as detecting gaps and diameters.

The right solution for any installation condition
Every application has own special requirements. Hence, the new Baumer toolbox for precise edge measurement offers tailored solutions matching different precision levels and installation conditions:
  • The 2D profile sensors from the OX series detect edges by the incident light principle
  • OE40 in compact housing with reflector bracket as plug-and-play option for measurements utilizing the through-beam principle
  • OE60 operating on the transmitter and receiver principle allows for up to 300 mm distance between the sensor heads.
The high-precision OE60 edge sensors are the only ones in their class that can be deployed as stand-alone devices without controller unit, since the sensor heads directly integrate into the control via the standardized Modbus RTU protocol. This saves an additional device while reducing overall costs.

Ideal for battery cell production and the packaging industry
The new Baumer edge sensors are ideal in battery cell production. Here, web edge measurements must be extremely precise, as the individual layer positioning (anode, cathode and separator foil) in the winding process defines service life, capacity and even battery safety. The extremely precise edge measurement ensured by the Baumer OE40 and OE60 edge sensors is a significant contribution towards enhanced product quality. Reliable detection of the individual tracks even at high speed is key in battery production. OE60 succeeds in this point by the very short response time and the outstanding precision of 1 µm achieved without any filtering. This way the sensor will detect any position change in the web edge without time delay.

Quickly ready-to-use OE40 plays to its strengths in the packaging industry. The edge sensor with reflector bracket reliably and precisely measures edge positions on thin transparent films where optical sensors would reach their limits. This is achieved by the specialized measuring mode for transparent objects for ensured process stability, i.e. in material infeed of transparent films used as packaging seal.

Performant portfolio for edge measurement
New edge sensors OE60 and OE40 as well as the smart 2D profile sensors of the OX series are new additons to the high-performance Baumer portfolio for reliable edge measurement at different precision levels and space conditions and cover multi-faceted requirements.
