Fork Sensors

fork sensorsWe are pleased to be able to offer to you the widest range of Fork Sensors and Fork Light Barriers on the market. Often referred to as slot sensors, they operate as through beam sensors, but with the transmitter, receiver and all the electronics in one robust metal casing for quick and simple installation.

Precise Fork Sensors

With our Fork Sensors there is no need for complex mounting brackets or mechanical adjustment. Very small parts can be very precisely positioned and very fast movements reliably detected, thanks to the high switching frequency, the short response time and the high resolution. Our Fork Sensors are rugged, compact and easily installed.  

Fork Sensor Applications

Typical applications for Fork Sensors include conveyors, small parts detection, positioning of a robot arm, cap detection on bottles, and general manufacturing. Many Fork Sensors include safe Class I visible laser light sources that feature very small diameter spot sizes (<0.5 mm). This style of Fork Sensor is used for detection of very small parts, such as electronic components or small fixings from bowl feeders.
