Balluff Flatpack Photoelectric Sensors
Miniature sensor for the harshest environments
Balluff's newest addition to the photoelectric family, the R01E Flatpack sensor, complements the proven inductive R01 family of sensors. These sensors offer diffuse versions with ranges up to 100 mm, polarized retroreflective with ranges up to one meter, and through beam sensor with ranges up to 2.2 meters. With a precise, uniform visible red light beam, alignment is easy and objects are reliably detected.
Not only does the small size provide flexibility in installation, but the stainless steel housing is built to survive the toughest applications in the harshest environments. Connections are made by cable or M8 three-pin quick disconnect.  

ClickSmart™ Family of Gripper Kits
End-of-arm tooling for Sawyer robots

We are excited to announce the  ClickSmart™ family of gripper kits , a unique solution for end-of-arm tooling for Sawyer that incorporates smart sensing and rapid swapping capabilities, resulting in the first fully integrated robotic solution available on the market through a single vendor.
Rethink's complete solution continues to simplify robot deployments. When the ClickSmart Plate is attached to any Sawyer robot, it will immediately recognize the type of end-effector and know how to control it.

Clippard ST Series 8mm Electronic Valves
Fast response times for accurate dosing of minute volumes

These new ST Series direct actuating valves offer an extremely fast response time for accurate dosing of minute volumes with the same long life you expect from the original Clippard EV line of electronic valves, now in a 8 mm cartridge package.

This valve was designed with a unique patented valving principle using Clippard's robust stainless steel "spider", with only one moving part that travels less than 0.007". Due to very low moving weights, they are extremely quiet and emit very low vibration. Subminiature size and low energy consumption make them ideal for many medical and diagnostic applications.
  • 1,000,000,000+ cycle life
  • Extremely small dead volume
  • Low vibration and noise
  • Exceptionally repeatability and reliability
  • 100% tested
