Instead of detecting translucency, ultrasonic fork sensors accurately assess and detect an object’s material qualities (such as thickness and stickiness).
The ultrasonic from the sensor is better absorbed by thicker materials than by thin ones. Even on transparent backing material, transparent labels can be seen.
An ultrasonic sensor is a device that uses ultrasonic sound waves to calculate a distance to an item. An ultrasonic sensor transmits and receives ultrasonic pulses using a transducer to determine the proximity of an item.
The global ultrasonic fork sensor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
Toposens, a high-tech firm with headquarters in Munich, has just released its first commercial 3D collision avoidance system for mobile robots, which is based on its own 3D ultrasonic echolocation technology.
After more than seven years of R&D and product commercialization, this is a significant turning point for the company. The Toposens 3D Ultrasonic Echolocation Sensor ECHO ONE and Toposens PROCESSING UNIT with sophisticated filters for 3D collision avoidance are available, having undergone rigorous commercial testing in real-world industrial scenarios with reputable mobile robotic companies.
This technology addresses the unmet need for higher safety of mobile robots in industrial settings. The greatest levels of performance are guaranteed for the initial serial deployment when a high-tech product is “co-developed” with top tech companies.
The safety of people and machines is kept at the center of production activities as the autonomous vehicle industry is developing and mobile robots, such as automated forklifts, AMRs, and AGVs, are seeing exponential development levels.
The market has realized that 3D collision avoidance is essential because the required 2D safety LiDARs can only produce two-dimensional data that falls short of the highest safety requirements.
Other 3D Sensor systems, like LiDAR or cameras, have limitations in their perception skills because of their physical characteristics, such as when the optical conditions in their environment are poor or objects, like forklift forks, are close to the ground.
The GSX, the first combined fork sensor in the world, is introduced by Leuze. Leuze is once again introducing a global innovation with the new GSX integrated fork sensor.
The gadget combines the benefits of ultrasonic and light sensors. The newest GSX fork sensors are from Leuze. The gadget works particularly well with labeling equipment used in the packaging sector.
With the launch of the GSX, the first combined fork sensor in the world, Leuze is carrying on its long history of innovation. Along with creating the first label fork (GS05), Leuze also created the first ultrasonic forked sensor (GSU14).
Leuze is completing its line of forked sensor products by include a combined model that can do both light and ultrasonics with its most recent innovation, the GSX (available in a number of versions). This makes it the greatest option for labeling machines used in the packaging industry because it combines the benefits of optical and ultrasonic options.
