Detection of Overlapped Outer Packaging Paper

Detection of Overlapped Outer Packaging Paper

The BGS-HDL series can be used to detect the presence of colorful outer packaging paper and whether the papers are overlapped.
The BGS-HDL series’ two control outputs enable simultaneous detection of both the presence of the outer packaging paper and overlapped papers by turning on Output 1 when one sheet is detected, and turning on Output 2 when two or more sheets are detected.
This means that all the work in applications that would conventionally require two sensors can be done with just a single sensor.

Presence Detection of Glossy and Transparent Pouches

Presence Detection of Glossy and Transparent Pouches

The BGS-HDL series enables detection of thin food pouches with high gloss.
The FGS mode of the BGS-HDL series ensures stable detection even with transparent pouches, glossy pouches or those with color patterns, and thin pouches. In FGS mode, if the light is reflected from anything other than the background, detection is positive.
Because output is enabled even when laser reception is not possible, stable detection is possible even for highly glossy targets and transparent targets.

Cup counting and orientation detection

Cup counting and orientation detection

The BGS-HDL series of C-MOS laser sensors can be used for counting and detecting container orientation.
With two control outputs, the BGS-HDL series can be configured to use output 1 for container passage counting, and output 2 for orientation detection, enabling simultaneous counting and orientation detection without the need for sensor synchronization. This allows for a single sensor to perform all the work in applications that would conventionally require two sensors.

Detection of Upper/Lower Limit of Hoppers

Hopper Upper/Lower Material Limit Detection

Monitor the upper and lower limits for material supply levels by TOF-L series BGS long-distance laser sensor in hoppers.
Detection is possible even at distances of up to 4.5 m. With two separate outputs, both upper and lower limits can be detected separately.
Moreover, detection of granulated objects (sound absorber) that cannot be detected using ultrasonic sensors is possible.

Detecting plain chewing gum protruding from the package

Detecting plain chewing gum protruding from the package

High resolution laser C-MOS BGS sensor BGS-HL can detect protruding gum from the package even if the deviation is very small because the spot size of the sensor is as small as φ0.8mm.

Detection of Transparent Containers

Transparent Container Detection

The Z3D-W20 wide angle diffuse reflective type sensor is capable of detecting transparent containers.
With normal diffuse sensors, the spot size is small, resulting in chattering due to container surface irregularities and variations.
The Z3D-W20 offers wide-area detection thanks to a large, ø60 mm beam at 100 mm, allowing for detection with a strong resistance to uneven surfaces and product variation.
This enables transparent object detection even in locations where retro-reflective sensors cannot be installed.

Model: Low Cost / Small Type  Z3D-W20




Detecting glossy plastic bag

Detecting glossy plastic bag

Although Thru-beam type is used for detecting glossy object normally, retro-reflective type sensor Z2R-400N can detect glossy object stably because its polarizing filter built-in.

Detecting pizza dough

Detecting pizza dough

High resolution BGS sensor BGS-HL can detect very small height difference even if the object is very thin pizza dough.
The sensor has new function "ZONE Teaching", which make possible very easy teaching and detection of very thin uneven dough.
BGS-HL is also IP67 as water resistant sensor so it can be washed by water splash.

Detecting direction of packed sweets

Detecting direction of packed sweets

C-MOS Laser sensor BGS-DL detects direction of packaged sweets. Normal reflective sensor cannot detect correctly by the influences of color and lines on aluminum deposition film, but BGS-DL with C-MOS image sensor realizes stable detection.
Production line efficiency will be improved.
