Ejection Control of Rivets on Chutes Using Retro-Reflex Sensors with Light Band
During the automated production of rivets, it must be ensured that the products are ejected correctly down a chute after the pressing process in order to avoid bottlenecks and machine downtimes. For this purpose, a retro-reflex sensor with light band is installed at the end of the chute. This detects the rivets that fall out, regardless of their shape and position from the front edge over the entire width and height of the light band. Even the smallest objects of just a few millimeters in size are reliably detected.
