Balluff's UltraFrame series is the latest in self-contained thru-beam sensor technology and is designed to solve problems many other sensors cannot. Balluff says the sensors offer reliable performance in an innovative package, and are the first ones to use in error-proofing, process monitoring, and general automation tasks in a number of environments. With the broadest selection of sizes, shapes, and light sources available today, there is an UltraFrame sensor for many applications, saving time, money, and headaches because one piece construction is always in alignment, easy to install, and without fiber optic cable hassles or routing of multiple power cords.
Four basic frame designs with multiple sizes to choose from and up to four application-specific light sources available to suit your design requirements. They have a repeatable non-contact sensing mode (thru-beam), and high level accuracy is available for complex sensing needs.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
