Analog Distance Measurement in a Stacking System for Sheet Metal Parts with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors with wintec
In the automotive industry, sheet metal body parts, such as doors, are automatically stored in and removed from stacking systems. In order for the robot to perform stacking, the storage height must be determined on these stacking column systems. Analog long-range laser distance sensors with wintec measure the distance to the half-folded latches in the stacking columns from distances of up to ten meters. The sensors reliably detect the objects regardless of their gloss, angle or degree of mattness.
