Balluff has introduced Microsonic’s new generation of ultrasonic double sheet controls.

The dbk+4 unites several variants of its predecessor into one appliance and three control inputs now enable three preset working ranges to be selected and changed during ongoing operations.

‘Standard’ covers a range of materials and weights for straightforward double-sheet monitoring.

‘Thin’ is used in particular with very thin papers such as Washi (Japanese paper) or films.

The ‘Thick’ working mode is there for scanning thick plastic films or PCBs.

An LED signals whether the user has pre-selected the right working range.

The teach-in mode applies when two materials are bonded across their entire surface, such as two wafers with a water film or sheet metals with an oil film.

The control inputs allow a single sheet to be taught and, as a result, to react at this stage to minor variations.

All these functions, including a trigger mode for stream feeders, are united in one model.

The reduced housing dimensions and angular head, outsourced receiver transducer and small M12-head variants make for optimised integration of dbk+4 into the machine.

A further feature revolves around visualisation of the dbk+4 readings on the screen – made possible by the free microsonic Linkcontrol software.

This helps the user to establish whether they have chosen the right settings for their application.
