Measuring and weighing without contact

Measuring and weighing without contact

Technology based on superconductors for laboratory application
At the Anuga Foodtech 2018 trade fair, Festo is presenting a concept for contact-free weighing and measuring.

Highly pure, sterile processes are a key challenge for the industrial production of tomorrow – especially in food processing and the pharmaceuticals and medical technology industries, but also in the electronics sector. To keep manufacturing processes as free from contamination as possible, the workpieces and the workroom should be separated from each other. This can be achieved with superconductor technology. At the Anuga Foodtech 2018 trade fair, Festo is presenting a concept for contact-free weighing and measuring.

SupraSensor_1 The SupraSensor exhibit demonstrates the function of a contactless balance, which could be used for example on sterile workbenches in biological or chemical analytics.
SupraSensor_2 Only the weighing pan carrying the item hovers over the table top – without the danger of cross-contamination via the workplace surface or tools.
