Micromax announces R58A series registration mark sensors from Banner Engineering, designed for detecting registration marks in printing and material registration applications often found in the web printing, product packaging and pharmaceutical industries. Features of the registration mark sensors include:

  • Registration mark sensors include simplified setup via potentiometer adjustment of the switching threshold and switch-selectable light/dark operate
  • Short warm-up period
  • Registration mark sensor offers fast 10 kHz switching frequency and 15-microsecond repeatability ensure reliable detection in high-speed printing and web processing applications, where timing is critical.
  • The R58A registration mark sensor excellent contrast sensitivity
  • Small 1.2 x 3.8 mm sensing image
  • The registration mark sensor detects subtle registration marks on high-gloss and other challenging materials, as well as in low-contrast applications
  • The rugged metal housing on the registration mark sensor, and high-quality acrylic lens are designed to handle ambient electrical noise and vibration from presses and die cutting machinery
  • A single emitter color—red or green, specified by model number—ensures that the customer's preferred light source is used every time

“The R58A provides high-performance registration mark detection that is low-cost and easy-to-use,” said Dennis Smith, Technical Marketing Engineer at Banner. “Banner's international and domestic customers require reliable mark detection, easy sensor set-up and fast response time—at a competitive price. The R58A delivers on all these requirements." Smith adds, "As the user adjusts the switching threshold using a potentiometer, two green LEDs guide the user to the optimal setting. The output logic is also user-selectable via a light/dark operate switch, enabling rapid product changeover on high mix printing lines.”

Applications of the R58A registration mark sensor include:

  • Filling and bottling machines
  • Printing – Labels, packaging, newspaper and wraps
  • Sealing machines for food and candy
  • Labeling machines 
  • High-speed web processing applications
  • Simplified setup with potentiometer adjustment of switching threshold
  • Plastic bagging printing, forming and sealing
