Some packaging conveyance applications require significant gaps between the individual packages to accurately detect and count the packages. Of course, this puts a limit on production. Baumer, however, has developed a counter that does not need such spacing, enabling more product to be conveyed in a given time. The SCATEC-2 Box copy counter for the packaging industry helps increase conveyance efficiency.
When packaging is changed, for example from a white to a colorful design, sensors may need to be adjusted. The SCATEC-2 Box eliminates this additional work. The unit functions precisely during gapless and even irregular packaging transport. It reliably detects all types of packaging, regardless of the product color or surface. These properties enable the customer to accelerate the process and increase output. High speeds do not pose a problem for the unit, which has a response time of less than 400 s. It can be used, for example, to trigger a code reading or identification system. Installation is plug and play easy. Support is available through ScaDiag diagnosis software.
