Position Control of Components at Manual Workstations via Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors
The presence and correct position of components during the insertion process must be ensured at semi-automated manual workstations. This prevents components or the machine from being damaged. For this purpose, a long-range laser distance sensor with wintec is installed at an angle above the station, which reliably detects both dark and shiny objects at an angle and regardless of their degree of gloss and surface condition. As the sensor is mounted outside the working range to keep it clear, large distances are required between the sensor and the object.
