Balluff introduces its SuperShorty inductive sensor line specifically developed for compact applications such as robotic end effectors.

Light-weight and miniature sensors are a requirement for robotic end effectors, where weight and installation space have to be carefully accounted for. Balluff's SuperShorties are extremely lightweight, down to 0.7 grams, and with diameters as small as 6.5mm and lengths as short as 6mm, they are the shortest inductive sensors on the market.

Balluff SuperShorties have self-contained electronics, making remote amplifiers unnecessary, and are produced in stainless steel housings, making them more than suitable in a wide range of challenging applications.

Their small housing and low weight combined with their high-switching precision allow the Balluff SuperShorties to fulfill the challenging requirements for robotic end effectors.

Our fully autonomous intelligent vehicles will help you to transform the way you move materials and route your workflows. Increase throughput, eliminate material flow errors, improve traceability, maximize flexibility and allow your employees to focus on higher level tasks. Unlike traditional AGV's, our mobile robotics navigate using the natural features of your facility and do not require expensive facility modifications or guidance. Our AIV's can adapt to changes in their environment and work freely and safely with your staff. Our mobile robots are intelligent enough to quickly learn their environment and then automatically find the optimal path to where they need to go. They also automatically make adjust for dynamic environments and can work together in fleets of up to 100 robots.
