Effective tool change cleverly designed with inductive miniature sensors

In modern processing centers, inductive sensors are the components of choice for monitoring the motor spindle clamping process. Integrated into the spindle, they must be exceptionally small and offer high repeatability to ensure smooth tool changing at all times. Baumer offers a high-performance portfolio of miniature sensors for the intelligent design of effective spindle solutions. Read more about Effective tool change cleverly designed with inductive miniature sensors[…]

WLAN sensor for water softener tank reduces maintenance

If only hard water is produced at the output of the softener instead of soft water, this may be due to the water softener tank. The concentration of salt or water may be too low or there may be other defects in the tank. In order to always be informed about this, a direct message Read more about WLAN sensor for water softener tank reduces maintenance[…]
