SENSAP™ INTEGRA series of industrial automation modules come with a series of optional sensors and actuators that interconnect directly onto Printing, Die-Cutting, Gluing, Folding, Binding, and Collating machines, in Printing and Carton-Converting industries, as well as onto Packaging equipment of Pharmaceuticals & Cosmetics and Food & Beverage producing enterprises, providing quality and performance inspection of the respective production processes.
► Performance & Consumption Sensors
The INTEGRA industrial automation modules come with a pair of optical diffusion sensors, or rotary encoders that enable accurate counting of moving items at the rate of up to 50 pcs/sec rate and measuring their linear velocity up to 30 m/sec.
► Print Quality Sensor
The INTEGRA Print-Quality sensor interconnects to gluing, folding machines and inspects simultaneously the following parameters at rates up to 600 m/min or 1800 pcs/min:
Missing Color and Color Registration at +/- 0.2mm accuracy.
Color Fidelity at +/-10% accuracy.
Print-to-Cut Registration at +/- 1.0mm accuracy.
The INTEGRA Print-Quality sensor incorporates SENSAP’s powerful autoTeach technology that enables automatic sensor commissioning and setup at a single button press.
► Item Identification Sensor
The INTEGRA Item-Identification sensor interconnects to gluing, folding, binding, and collating machines, as well as onto conveyor belts and identifies simultaneously up to four (4) codes in 1D-, 2D-BARCODE, PHARMACODE, or OCR format, at rates up to 600 m/min or 1800 pcs/min.
The INTEGRA Item-Identification sensor is provided in two variations for: a) gluing, binding, collating machines, and b) for folding machines. The sensor incorporates SENSAP’s powerful autoTeach technology that enables automatic sensor commissioning and setup at a single button press.
► Glue Profile Sensor
The INTEGRA Glue-Profile sensor interconnects to gluing machines and records cold glue profile in up to six (6) points, at +/- 1.0 mm accuracy and up to 300 m/min speed.
The INTEGRA Glue-Profile sensor incorporates SENSAP’s powerful autoTeach technology that enables automatic sensor commissioning and setup at a single button press.
► Patch-Window Sensor
The INTEGRA Patch-Window sensor interconnects to gluing machines and detects missing or damaged patch-windows at up to 300 m/min speed.
The INTEGRA Patch-Window sensor incorporates SENSAP’s powerful autoTeach technology that enables automatic sensor commissioning and setup at a single button press.
► Jam Detection Sensor
The INTEGRA Jam-Detection sensor interconnects to printing machines for detecting double-sheet and jam of material with density ranging from30 gr/m2 to 1200 gr/m2.
► Package Quality Sensor
The INTEGRA Package-Quality sensor interconnects to the INTEGRA GATE module to inspect the quality of transferred goods, namely: a) missing or broken caps or seals, b) missing or defected product labels, c) damaged or spoiled carton boxes.
► Fluid Level Sensor
The INTEGRA Fluid-Level sensor interconnects to the INTEGRA GATE module to verify the liquid level in moving bottles.
► Spoilage Marking & Rejection Actuators
SENSAP™ INTEGRA ITK and INTEGRA GATE support a series of spoilage marking and rejection devices, such as:
Linear Ejector (i.e. the kicker of gluing/folding machines),
High performance Rotary Ejector, and
Ink-Jet Marking Nozzle.
In case of defect identification the ITK issues an alarm (i.e. optical and sound signal), activates its spoilage ejector, or spoilage marker, and stops – optionally – the machine feeder. Such alarms can be further transmitted to existing shop-floor industrial automation systems through PROFINET, AS, and TCP/IP interfaces.
SENSAP™ INTEGRA devices leverage world-class UHF RFID and BARCODE technologies combined with Vision Sensors and Optical Encoders to integrate seamlessly into the working environment of machine-operators.
SENSAP™ INTEGRA devices interconnect to existing shop-floor industrial automation systems through PROFINET, AS, and TCP/IP interfaces. Equipped with SENSAP’s powerful autoTeach feature, INTEGRA automation modules comprise precise, reliable, and easy-to-use industrial control automation that requires minimum commissioning and setup time.
SENSAP’s innovative products allow for quick and easy installation onto almost any piece of equipment, while requiring short training and roll-out times.
