Industrial Limit Switches Market – Introduction

A limit switch is an electromechanical sensing device used in industrial applications. Limit switch consist of an actuator. In industrial application, when an object physically comes in contact with an actuator, the industrial limit switches get activated by providing pneumatic or electric signals. Industrial limit switches are of two types namely metallic and non-metal. Selection of the switch is based on strength required for application, environmental factors, and available space. Metallic type industrial limit switches are designed for tough industrial or harsh environmental conditions and they are best choice for heavy duty industrial applications, whereas non-metallic type industrial limit switches are designed to provide contact integrity, sensing consistency, and longer product life. These type of switches are suitable for packaging of glass and plastics, conveyor, and control panel applications. Industrial limit switches are used for non-human mechanical actuation process to provide reliable performance in harsh environment conditions. Industrial limit switches are available with coating to protect the switches from external factors that may damage the switches.

Industrial Limit Switches Market – Dynamics

Increasing use of Industrial Limit Switches in Packaging Applications

One of the major driving factors for the growth of global industrial limit switches market is increasing use of limit switches in packaging applications. This includes packaging of glass and plastics and food and beverage packaging. In warehouses, limit switches are used to verify the presence of carton box, detect if any major or minor flaps of the box is open, reduces change over time by detecting all carton box shape, detects low contrast and invisible glues, and reads distorted or partial code quickly to optimize packaging efficiency.

Moreover, rotary encoder helps for precise positioning of product to speed up the response time of the system. Furthermore, palletizer uses suction-cup grippers to pick up a carton box and place it over the empty pallet. When the pivot arm reaches to its maximum vertical height, the arm hits a limit switch and the switch signals the system that the stack size is full and empty pallet is required for placing carton box. In this way industrial limit switches are used in various industrial packaging application as they are easy to install and require low maintenance. Hence, owing to high accuracy, high efficiency, and fast response time industrial limit switches are increasingly used for packaging application which is anticipate to boost the demand of industrial limit switches during forecast period.
