Presence and Position Monitoring of Glass Disks in CNC Processing Machines via Reflex Sensors with Background Suppression
In CNC machining centers for glass, the presence and exact position of the glass objects must be reliably detected during gripping and further transport. Compact reflex sensors with background suppression are integrated into the stainless steel 316L housing for this purpose. They reliably detect the presence of the glass surfaces or detect the front edges of the panes for exact positioning by the gripper arm. The use of water for cooling and removal of chips is easily possible thanks to the robust housing and high IP69K degree of protection.
