Photoelectric sensor mounting brackets make positioning more flexible
Pepperl+Fuchs introduces mounting brackets that support multi-axes alignment in cost effective package ideal for packaging, material handling and general automation applications.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced MH01-M18 Mounting Brackets for use with the company’s ML17 series as well as all M18 cylindrical photoelectric sensor families. These mounting brackets provide an affordable means of mounting photoelectric sensors with industry-standard M18 threading in packaging, material handling and general automation applications with multi-axes alignment needs.
Unlike standard right angle mounting brackets that are inherently inflexible, these half-clamp style brackets allow the sensor to quickly be turned on several axes for easy adaptation to changing multi-axes alignment application needs. They fasten on a 12 mm (0.5 in.) diameter rod or bolt common to packaging and material handling equipment. Once fastened, the half-clamp can be rotated 360° around the rod or bolt to best align the sensor to satisfy the specific application requirements.

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.
