Challenge

Reliably detecting the leading edge of pallets in palletizing and depalletizing equipment can be challenging because pallets are often inconsistent in thickness and dimension. Pallet sensors often require frequent adjustments or fail altogether, which leads to greater costs and more down time. To reduce costs and keep manufacturing flowing, it is vital to have an accurate sensing solution that requires minimal or no adjustments.

Solution

Banner’s PVD100 is a custom-made solution that accurately detects pallets without adjustments, even when features are inconsistent. This easy-to-use, versatile light screen has a wide beam pattern, making alignment simple. With a compact design, it can easily be embedded into a machine or directly on the line.

The PVD100 light screen sensing solution has a detection height of 100 mm and a scanning range of 2 m. It has highly visible red and green LED lighting to display operation and indicate the operational status.

Banner’s continuous innovation helps create solutions that increase efficiency, reduce costs and ensure quality. The PVD100 light screen is an example of Banner’s innovation and commitment in finding solutions for unique application needs.
