The sustainable use of raw materials and the recycling of waste materials are core tasks on the road to a sustainable and forward-thinking economy. The recycling of raw materials is already making an increasing contribution to the supply of raw materials. The use of new technologies and methods enables ever greater recovery rates and is therefore becoming steadily more profitable. Pulsotronic-Anlagentechnik GmbH is a pioneer in sensor-based systems for sorting all types of metals. We have been developing and producing specialised sensors for recycling applications for more than 20 years. As a partner for many sorting machine manufacturers, we are the world’s number one when it comes to these types of systems. With our experience and tens of thousands of sensors in the field, we are able to develop and deliver custom sensors for virtually every application.
Different variants are available for integration with machines. Our sensors come in widths of up to two meters and with a resolution between 12 mm and 100 mm. There is also the possibility of arranging multiple sensors side by side to achieve sorting widths greater than two meters. Interfaces are available in standard Ethernet, RS485, or PNP switch outputs.
Are you a manufacturer of sorting machines looking for the right solution for sensor-based metal detection? We would be happy to offer you advice and provide support in implementing sensors in your control environment!
These highly sensitive area sensors for detecting all types of small metal parts stand out due to their spatially resolved detection. This means that the metal parts are not only detected, but their position is determined on the sensor, making this unique sensor particularly suitable for use in the recycling industry. For example, metallic contaminants can be rejected from a material flow with precision, allowing shredded material to be sorted in an optimal way. The sensor can be used for conveyor belts, chutes or free-fall applications.
Like all sensors in the MESEP FS series, the 3rd generation of devices also provides highly sensitive and precise detection of the smallest metal particles. Thanks to the integrated Ethernet interface, for the first time the sensor data can be sent to a PC or PLC in real time and analysed. This technology enables sensor data to be merged with the measurement values of other devices, such as spectrometers, cameras or X-ray machines. This opens up new applications in other areas of industry, such as mining, textiles recycling, paper, films and many more.
