Position Sensing of the Gripper Jaws of a Robot Gripper with Miniature Inductive Sensor

In the automotive industry, parts are gripped and moved by robots at high speed. The robots’ grippers have little space, which is why miniature inductive sensors are integrated. These detect whether the grippers are open or closed, ensuring that parts can be correctly gripped and moved. The increased switching distance of the sensor (1 mm) simplifies adjustment and enables flush mounting so that the gripper and sensor remain protected from damage. 

Inductive Sensors with Increased Switching Distances

Inductive sensors with increased switching distances offer up to three times the switching distances compared to standard inductive sensors. The integrated weproTec technology ensures fault-free operation of several sensors that are operated directly next to one another.
