RFID Solutions for Food Industry
Benefits of RFID Profit in several ways from RFID in the food production. The radio-based identification technology allows not only efficient production control but also easy traceability, increases the availability of means of production, productivity and safety. Moreover, all processes are reliably documented.
Advantage: Track & Trace in the Food Production
Increased efficiency through seamless production control, quick batch changes, mixed production of different products, as well as simple capture of yield
Ensuring the correct origin, such as regional or organic production or after EU labelling regulation
Lifetime management of the means of production – such as moulds or transport containers – provides an overview of volume, age and condition and allows timely ordering, precautionary check based on fixed cycles, or even removal in case of production problems
Traceability in the case of problems, such as contamination, pathogens or incorrectly labelled ingredients
Quality assurance by ensuring the cleaning cycles, monitoring of cooling and drying times, time stamp, as well as the simplified process documentation

Track & Trace Solutions for the Pharmaceutical Industry
Profit in several ways from tailor-made products for pharmaceutical applications. Turck offer a comprehensive portfolio of application-optimized RFID tags and read/write heads for the pharmaceutical industry, as well as solutions for use in hazardous areas. The products are resistant to cleaning processes.
Benefits of Track & Trace in the pharmaceutical production
Improved plant safety through the automatic and tamper-proof monitoring of the correct device assignment and the correct use of equipment such as with tube connections or cryo-vessels.
Higher personal protection by avoiding media contact with tube connections
Increased product quality through reliable identification and documentation of precursors and intermediates
Serialization through complete traceability of medicines from production to transportation
Safe use of field devices by ensuring the correct device operation and monitoring of maintenance intervals
What is Pick-to-Light? Turck Pick-to-Light solutions provide operators with a visual indication of the required part in an assembly sequence. Actions (correct or false) are indicated by means of lights and optional audible signals. Completed operations can either be automatically or manually acknowledged.
Advantage: Process optimisation Visual process management opens up manifold possibilities for process improvement:
Improved flexibility; personnel require next to no training
Improved and repeatable process quality
Quality management/control by means of process logging
Interfaces to warehouse control, ERP-systems…
Drastically reduced installation, commissioning and maintenance times
Virtually 100 % error free installation
Pick-to-Light solutions from Turck are based on IP67 components to allow robust, fast and error-free installation without the need for a control cabinet. The plug-and-play qualities inherent to an IP67 solution result in reduced installation times coupled with an almost 100 % error-free installation with drastically reduced labour costs. Solutions using IP20 components are also available on request.
Due to a modular hardware and software approach, tailor-made complete solutions can be readily and cost-effectively realised to our customers requirements. Our experience in this field and our ability to provide one-stop shopping for the complete solution ensure that all components interoperate perfectly.
The new Q4X laser distance sensor, developed by Turck's optic partner Banner Engineering, detects objects that are hard to see under extreme conditions. He is designed for difficult distance-based applications over a range of 25-300 mm and reliably detects distance changes as small as 1 mm on such challenging targets as black objects on black backgrounds or reflective items.
Multicolored reflective package detection
Detecting black parts on black door panel
Cap orientation verification
Rubber washer detection
Monitoring the stack height of the carton blanks in the magazin
Bottle fill level detection
Detecting clear glass and plastic PET bottles on a manufacturing line
Its versatility allows OEMs or end users to reduce inventory of different sensor types. Comprehensive menus are easy to navigate. An angled four-digit, seven-segment LED display with convenient push-buttons allows intuitive setup and easy viewing. A bright output indicator provides high visibility of operation. Bipolar (PNP and NPN) outputs integrate the sensor with PLC or other control units. Alternatively the sensors IO-Link-interface features easy parameterization and diagnostics. Its stainless steel housing is rated IP67, IP68, IP69K and is Ecolab certified. Robust construction withstands impact, vibration, over-tightening and aggressive cleaning.
QS18 – Versatile Sensor Solves Wide Variety of Applications
The QS18 clear object detection sensor, developed by Turck's optic partner Banner Engineering, detectes with his coaxial optics clear and mirror-like surfaces. The coaxial optics operates at very short distances from the reflector and enables very precise leading edge detection.
QS18 Universal Voltage sensors can be connected to either AC or DC power, allowing them to operate in large conveyor applications already using AC power without requiring a separate power supply. The robust, compact housing and multiple mounting options make the QS18 an ideal sensor for material handling applications where sensors might come into contact with moving parts.
