The IMB inductive proximity sensor defies all obstacles

Master of extremes

Agricultural machines are exposed to extreme situations which require a high degree of ruggedness to withstand. Only the tough – and the giving – prevail. IMB inductive proximity sensors make a major contribution to this. With a rugged stainless-steel housing, special seals, the latest ASIC technology from SICK, and the wide temperature range unique to the market, they ensure process stability, even under very difficult conditions – and cover a wide variety of applications while doing so.   Continue reading

Holcim cement plant: Distance sensors always know where “Louise” is

Holcim Cement

“Louise” has an important job in the cement plant Holcim in Siggenthal, Switzerland. She is a bunker discharger in such a way as to achieve optimum discharge of limestone and marl as well as even charging of the grinding gear. Until now, a staff member had to go into the facility to determine the exact position of “Lousie”. But nowadays distance sensors from SICK are able to detect the position and apply corrections to the plant control quickly. Continue reading
