Enhancing Efficiency and Precision in Electronic Manufacturing with Balluff Industrial Sensors

Posted by Balluff on Dec 13, 2023 4:59:17 PM


In the fast-paced world of electronic manufacturing, precision and efficiency are paramount. Industrial sensors play a crucial role in achieving these goals by enabling accurate positioning, scanning, and alignment. In this blog, we will explore the significance of industrial sensors in the electronic industry and focus on our specific products and their applications.

Industrial Sensors in electronic industry

Industrial sensors are essential components in the manufacturing sector, enabling automation and improving productivity. These sensors are designed to detect and measure physical properties such as temperature, pressure, proximity, and more. Key functions of sensors in this industry include positioning, scanning, and alignment.


BOH for Precise Alignment of End Effector to Semiconductor Wafers:

In semiconductor manufacturing, precise alignment is critical for the quality and reliability of electronic devices. Our BOH optical sensor headsplays a vital role in aligning the end effector to semiconductor wafers. You can reliably ensure alignment of the wafer on-the-fly using two Micromote through-beam sensors. Their high-precision signals make it possible to calculate the offset for the ideal line when the switching for both through-beam sensors is not simultaneous. Due to our Microspot technology, you can correct the wafer, since it precisely detects the sharp wafer edges. By ensuring accurate alignment, it minimizes defects and enhances the overall quality of electronic devices. Learn more about BOH in semiconductor applications
