Bandall, a family-owned sustainable bundling and banding solutions company based in Heemskerk, The Netherlands, faced the challenge of using different sensors for detecting various product formats for its customers. Implementing OMRON’s optical sensor and a digital fiber amplifier in their standalone banding machines has enabled creating a single solution for meeting various needs.
Bandall manufactures various banding machines, including stand-alone models for food and beverage products, in different versions. The machines are durable, reliable, and modular in structure, offering multiple options like stainless steel, multi-width, printer, positioning system, or press. However, as various products require different types of bands, the company has until now had to design specific machines for each material or product.
Wouter Vaneker, Bandall’s Office Team Leader, explains: “We were having to use a specific sensor for each type of product or material. For simplicity and cost-effectiveness, we wanted to create a single machine with a sensor that could cope with all the different types of items. We considered various sensors and brands but OMRON turned out to have the best solution. OMRON also has a similar philosophy of sustainability to ours.Contact us for more information
