"Our contribution to your quality pledge"

Baumer sensors in hygienic design are reliable components which decisively support product quality and process stability. Most of all, we put experience in our products. We know about the special challenge of producing foods so that they are fresh and delicious when they reach the customer. Using this knowledge we have developed probably the most comprehensive range of solutions in the market.

Reliable ultrasonic or photoelectric sensors, temperature meters and pressure gages for touch-free volume calculation of cheese or meat products or homogenization and/or pasteurization provide more safety during processing or subsequent processing, so your quality pledge keeps what it promises.

For example SmartReflect

With SmartReflect™ Baumer offers the first reflector light barrier which detects even highly transparent bottles or foils. When SmartReflect™ is used, the light beam can easily be closed by a machine part at the conveyor belt so the costly installation of an additional reflector is unnecessary.
