Solving the challenge of baked goods

17 July 2020

The new DRT 25C sensor from Leuze is designed to work with confectionery and baked goods packaging machines.

The primary and secondary packaging of confectionery and baked goods can be challenging as sensors must continuously and reliably detect a wide range of products on the conveyor belt. The new DRT 25C dynamic reference  sensor solves this problem in an innovative and reliable way: with a one-of-a-kind reference technology and three light spots. 

First, the surface characteristics of the belt are taught, this enables the sensor to subsequently detect all objects that do not correspond to the belt surface as "deviations", even if the conveyor belt is dirty or vibrating. Colour, gloss, or transparency do not influence the detection guaranteeing a high machine throughput and preventing system downtime.

No realignment of the sensor is needed when products or packaging materials are changed over. This significantly reduces the setup time required and enables higher product volumes.
