Folding

Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide variety of sensors for your folding machine applications.

Photoelectric applications in folding machines range from reliable media detection to transparent sheet and edge detection to ensure consistent front and lateral alignment. Vision sensors, especially designed for the print and packaging industry, reliably verify sheets - even sheets with reflective surfaces.

Double sheet detection with ultrasonic sensors prevents machine downtime and material waste.
