Controlling pushing cylinders in tunnel construction

Efficient and smooth drilling process through BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors

The solution

In tunnel construction, boring machines remove rock centimeter by centimeter. Pushing cylinders, which continuously force the drill head into the rock, provide the strength needed for this. Our vibration-resistant BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensors correctly report the piston position with precision ( even under extreme conditions) and permit a smooth drilling process.

The features

  • Reliable
  • Wear-free: Long life for the highest system availability
  • Vibration-resistant: For use under extreme conditions
