Wood is a versatile material requiring special handling. For this reason the wood industry places demands unlike those of any other branch of industry. Forestry and sawmill applications subject sensors to the harshest ambient conditions while requiring that they work ﬂ awlessly. Precise, intelligent sensors and transducer systems are used in wood processing machinery to make the ﬁ nishing process more efﬁ cient and provide the highest level of quality. Balluff products work extremely reliably – both in sawmills and on wood ﬁ nishing machinery. With the combination of ruggedness, accuracy and reliability, Balluff products meet the demands of the entire wood industry and provide innovative sensor technology for enabling fast, automated processes.
