Top 5 Applications for Inductive Sensors on Packaging Machines

Amid the multitude of advanced technologies being integrated into automated packaging operations today, one of the most reliable and versatile components - inductive sensors - have been holding their own for decades.These simple sensors pack a big punch for OEMs and end users alike. We have compiled a list of the top five places where inductive sensors can positively impact productivity.

Many factors make inductive sensing attractive to modern packaging applications. Because the sensor uses inductive variations in an internally generated magnetic field to detect the presence of metallic objects, there is no need for the sensor to physically contact the target itself. That feature alone offers a host of advantages - consistent performance for a variety of product or machine position and counting applications in harsh and sanitary environments, resistance to dirt and other substances, adaptability to high-speed functions, and many more.


And because they contain no moving parts, inductive…
