HELPING YOU #MAKE SENSE OF SENSORS

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 CUSTOMERS 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
Contrinex’s innovative sensors provide affordable detection of overlapping metal sheets. They can protect a press-line by checking that two metal blanks are not presented to the forming press, or alternatively ensure two pieces of metal are present for example in an automotive welding assembly – Sometimes two’s too many, but sometimes you just need two. CUSTOMER APPLICATION 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.

Customer Solution Contrinex offers a rugged, compact stainless-steel -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. The sensor enables discrimination between single and double metal sheets of a defined thickness of steel or aluminium in the size range of 0.8 – 1.2mm thick. A specialist version of Contrinex’s uniquely robust ‘700 Series’ family of inductive sensors, they share the benefits of being both impact and abrasion resilient and having a case machined from a single-piece of stainless-steel – These are the sensors whose robustness is demonstrated by using them to hammer in nails. The reliability of their performance and robustness enable you to minimise downtime and improve the OEE of Press-lines or verify assembly operations.

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, in the range 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. Alternatively it can assure that two metal pieces are supplied to an assembly operation. 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.
