Balluff History

Gebhard BalluffBicycles, motorcycles and sewing machines were the starting point for over 90 years of success!
  • By 1947 this small business had grown into a factory for precision mechanical products.
  • In 1921 Gebhard Balluff founded his mechanical repair shop for bicycles and sewing machines.
  • In 1956 Balluff entered into the Sensor market and the development of sensor innovations began with the production of the BND Cam Switch.
  • In 1968 work began on the BES Inductive Proximity Switches, which were the first non-contact sensor. This was a great advance in control technology for mechanical engineering and made Balluff one of the world market leaders.
  • Fast forward 10 years to 1978 and Balluff has furthered this technology by creating sensors that can now detect objects even at great distances and are made of a variety of materials other than metal.
  • In 2012 Balluff began production on BNI Smart Lights. They have expanded their expertise into high-precision magnetic displacement and angle measurement systems
  • In 2015 with its comprehensive portfolio, Balluff has developed into a pacesetter for Industry 4.0.


Balluff provides precise electrical solutions for  many applications in industry. They have researched and developed high precision solutions for almost every industrial application including:

Latest InnovationsTool ID

Safety Automation requires safety and Balluff's quality guarantees this safety. Their concept consists of products and solutions that fulfil their tasks over the course of years with the same reliability and precision. This is achieved through creating a high number of products that minimise danger for humans and production plants. Safety over I-O Link To increase the efficiency of safety concepts and integrate them into the safety control,  Balluff have created a safe I-O module. The Balluff Safety Hub is the first integrated safety solution via I-O link. It's easy to integrate, responds quickly and can replace the control cabinet. It handles communication down to the last meter and provides both sensor and actuator details as well as secure information. Like all Balluff products, this safety concept is built with state of the art technology and high quality components. Tool-ID  Easy Tool-ID is a helpful solution to get started in automated tool management. It uses simple installation and configuration to easily set up nearly any machine tool that has a USB interface. It eliminates the need for manual entry of information, which diminishes the risk of incorrect data. Data is instead written on the tool by the presetter via RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. This is then transmitted to the machine tool using the Easy Tool-ID system. Furthermore, the product consists of a tool stand with integrated read/write head, a processor unit, a micro-controller and the power supply.
