Horizontal or Vertical Collating

Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide variety of sensors for your horizontal or vertical collating applications.

Special vision sensors ensure fast and accurate sheet verification by image comparison and code reading. Ultrasonic double sheet detection sensors identify overlapping or double sheets irrespective of the media, whether fine papers, transparencies, or cardboards. Our photoelectric miniature precision sensors are also specialized on precise edge detection of transparent sheets. All cylinders and parts are precisely detected and positioned by our inductive sensors and encoders.
