Flexibly meet changing requirements
Linked production systems consist of standard machines that are connected via intralogistic devices and continuous conveyors. An especially economical concept, since both high-volume parts and lower volume part variants can be produced with low costs and few modifications to the system.
Likewise, the so-called small processing technology should always be current. This is because only then does it monitor loaders reliably, ensure supply of coolant and lubricant and keep track of the fill levels for the hydraulic units. The important thing here is: Layout changes must be easy to implement because there are increasingly more due to shorter and shorter product development cycles.
In pneumatically operated grippers, pistons are frequently equipped with magnets for detecting the position of the gripper jaws. Therefore, you can easily monitor the gripping operations with our BMF magnetic cylinder sensors.
And this is how it works: Insert sensors in the mounting groove. Slide to set the desired switching point. Screw in place. Done.
You can detect end positions of loading systems with our BES inductive sensors. To do this, a metal switch lug just needs to be attached at the desired position. The sensors detect them without contact and transfer the correct switching signal to the controller.
Freely selectable target positions enable you to very flexibly use linear drives with integrated position measurement. If you want to increase their performance, our compact BML magnetic encoder is ideal. The position measurement encoder increases the efficiency: from the position drive to the position-controlled axis.
To detect the hydraulic fluid fill level, you just need magnetostrictive fill level sensors with floats. Because they are completely encapsulated, they are especially rugged. For these precise sensors, analog outputs and IO-Link are options as interfaces.
Depending on the version, ultrasonic level sensors can be used for switching-signal-assisted two-point controllers or for permanent fill level control. In this way, you benefit from maximum flexibility in the choice of the monitoring type.
There is hardly a more elegant way to detect leaks than with the installation of capacitive sensors on a spacer that is attached, for example, to the bottom of the collecting container. The sensors record even the slightest fluid losses with absolute reliability.
