Reliable detection of packaging
Packages being transported on a conveyor belt must be detected and counted reliably. In the past, products had to be singulated for this purpose. The DeltaPac MultiTask photoelectric sensor (WTD20E) detects packages on the conveyor belt even if they are close to each other. It detects the packaging regardless of their color and surface. This allows for non-contact, wear-free, and reliable counting. With the DeltaPac MultiTask photoelectric sensor, therefore, this separation is no longer necessary. This does away with the need for elaborate mechanisms in the conveying line.
