EXAMPLE APPLICATIONS

TO ILLUSTRATE THE WIDE-VARIETY OF APPLICATIONS SOLVED USING CONTRINEX SENSORS, WE HAVE POSTED A LARGE SELECTION OF EXAMPLE APPLICATIONS WHICH CAN BE SEEN BY CLICKING ON AN IMAGE. BELOW ARE A SELECTION OF SOME OF THESE APPLICATIONS:
CUSTOMER VALUES Reliable double-sheet detection eliminates tool damage and downtime Compact, robust sensor ensures convenient, unobtrusive operation Increased flexibility as a single sensor detects several different materials (eg Carbon steel, Stainless steel & Aluminium) Reduced complexity as sensor connects directly to the customer’s control system PRODUCT ADVANTAGES Sensor specially developed for detecting multiple overlapping metal sheets Condet® technology makes performance independent of target material Rugged inductive sensor with one-piece stainless steel construction Extended sensing distance avoids risk of mechanical damage
Continex’s Double-Sheet Inductive sensors have been specifically developed for more affordable detection of overlapping metal sheets. The specialist inductive sensor checks sheet metal blanks prior to being presented to the forming press – If the sensor detects that two or more sheets are stuck together, the press feed control system rejects the material and protects the press from damage. The sensors are a specialist version of Contrinex’s innovative, robust ‘700 Series’ family of inductive sensors. The double- sheet detection sensors enable discrimination between one and two conductive metal sheets of defined thickness, achieving a sensitivity of 0.8 – 1.2 mm per sheet. The one-piece, stainless-steel construction of these sensors makes them the most durable on the market. They withstand the impacts that are a common hazard close to moving sheet metal, ensuring minimal down-time to improve OEE.
APPLICATION - DOUBLE-SHEET PRESS FEED PROTECTION
Click for Video Click for Demo Video
Customer Solution A producer of deep-drawn metal parts for the automotive industry uses Contrinex’s double-sheet sensing to prevent costly tool damage and downtime. Deep drawing and other metal-forming techniques are widely used in the automotive industry, which requires expensive press tools to produce complex profiles from sheet metal blanks. During high-volume production, an automated feeder loads sheets of steel or aluminium to the press. The metal sheets are lightly lubricated to reduce friction during deep drawing, but the thin film of oil can cause two sheets to stick together in the feeder. If the press operates with such double sheets loaded, the forming tool will be damaged, resulting in downtime and large repair costs. Therefore sensing systems are used to check the material before it is loaded. Previously, the customer had trailed alternative sensor technologies. All were excessively cumbersome and difficult to set up, and most were unable to detect double sheets reliably. Contrinex offers a rugged, compact metal-bodied sensor for the loading station, which checks each metal sheet as it is presented by the feeder. If it detects a double sheet, the material is rejected and the operating cycle inhibited, which reduces expensive damage to tooling and improves OEE
CONTRINEXS INNOVATIVE DOUBLE-SHEET DETECTION SENSORS ACCURATELY DETECT SINGLE OR DOUBLE CONDUCTIVE METAL SHEETS OF A DEFINED THICKNESS, ACHIEVING A SENSITIVITY OF 0.8 1.2 MM PER SHEET

DOUBLE-SHEET DETECTION - 700 SERIES INDUCTIVE

Contrinex’s 700 Series includes a special if not ‘magical’ Double-sheet Detection Sensor which utilises inductive technology to discriminate between one and two conductive metal sheets of a defined thickness, achieving sensitivity of 0.8 – 1.2 mm per sheet. This discrimination aids in the prevention of double feeds into blanking and forming processes which ultimately saves damage to tooling. The one-piece, stainless-steel construction of these sensors makes them the most durable on the market. They withstand the impacts that are a common hazard in double-sheet detection applications, ensuring minimal down-time.
