Customized sensor solutions in plant engineering

Practical application examples repeatedly demonstrate the importance of sensor technology for the smooth running of a wide variety of industrial processes. Already during the development of machines and plants, not only special solutions are often required here, but also development specialists with the corresponding application know-how.

H.O.M. GmbH, based in Arnsberg, has specialized in the customer-specific development and realization of measuring as well as sorting systems since 2008.

A straight component with regard to the high reliability of the systems is the sensor technology. "The choice of the right sensor solution in certain plant areas is decisive for a smooth inspection and sorting process," says André Humpert, Managing Director of H.O.M GmbH. For him, it is therefore not only obvious to obtain the entire sensor technology from a single source, but also to cooperate with partners who have extensive application know-how.

In the course of developing a special sorting system, ipf electronic's task was to identify suitable sensor solutions for the respective tasks within the sorting process and to implement them together with H.O.M. in such a way that reliable parts sorting into designated containers is ensured. This also applied to the system area where IO parts were to be discharged.
