The GSX fork sensor reliably, quickly, and precisely detects a wide range of labels, regardless of their material and surface characteristics. This increases the machine throughput and avoids downtime. Even labels made of inhomogeneous cavitated BOPP material can be reliably detected. The fork sensor is especially well suited for applications in which various types of labels need to be detected. Until now, this often required several different fork sensors. The user saves not only space, but also additional time and costs of installation. The new fork sensor can be quickly and easily set up via the teach button in order to teach the label-carrier combination.

The new GSX fork sensor features an IO-Link interface.  This allows the sensor to be easily and quickly configured using remote teaching. In addition, recipe management allows easy format changeovers, this means that re-teaching, of the sensor, is not necessary when changing reels to a different label format.
