Pressing

Whether in the automotive industry, rubber industry or in the processing of wood and composite materials such as carbon fibers: Presses indispensable in today's industry. Ensuring great repeat accuracy and consistently high precision means continuously monitoring each and every movement. Our comprehensive portfolio guarantees consistent product quality, both in single-unit production and on long press lines.

Application examples

  • Monitoring press parallelism of particleboard systems

    Optimum results in the production of particleboards

    The solution

    High ambient temperatures are not an issue for our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors: The cylinders (up to 60) always ensure an optimal result in particleboard systems, even in the upper temperature range. Our BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors, which are integrated in the hydraulic cylinders, monitor the closing height and parallelism of the press. And they ensure that the dimensions of the processed particleboards are realized with reliability and precision.

    The features

    • Explosion protected
    • Extended temperature range
    • Can be installed in the cylinders

  • Forming composite materials

    High repeatability in forming composite materials

    The solution

    In the production of components made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), uniform pressure on the carbon fibers woven into mats is of central importance for an optimum result. Our heat-resistant BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors ensure uniform shaping of the plastic and guarantee consistent pressure with every press-fitting process. They even work with high precision and great repeat accuracy in high temperature ranges – for every shape.

    The features

    • High temperature range
    • High repeat accuracy
    • Also has multiple position encoders to monitor both sides of the press
