Position Control of Assembly Tools for Plastic Containers with Reflex Sensors with Background Suppression
In the automotive industry, plastic containers – such as wiper cleaner tanks – must be fixed in a holder for welding on pipes or covers. Gripper plates are used for this purpose, which position the containers and clamp hanging nozzles and pipes. The reflex sensors with background suppression installed above monitor the closing of the grippers. If these are closed, the sensor switches. Thanks to its robust design and visible red light, the M8 sensor can be easily mounted and aligned with the grippers.
