Transparent objects are usually produced with the goal to provide best visibility of the products they contain.
Ultrasonic waves are used to enable stable detection of transparent objects, such as transparent films, glass bottles, plastic bottles, and plate glass, using Through-beam or Reflective Sensors.
Transparent objects are usually produced with the goal to provide best visibility of the products they contain. This makes these objects also difficult to detect with optical sensing principles. While photoelectric sensors are the preferred choice for the detection of transparent objects, ultrasonic sensors are able to detect products regardless of color, texture or glossiness at long range. Ultrasonic sensors can also detect powder in storage tanks. Omron Industrial Automation offers reliable sensing solutions for packaging and material handling to meet the required task.
