Slack Monitoring on Sheet Metal Belts with Ultrasonic Distance Sensor

Continuous material supply must be ensured in punching machines. As a material buffer, the supplied metal sheets are guided through the system in the form of a hanging loop. This compensates for the time delay between replenishment and the production processes. To monitor this process, an ultrasonic distance sensor is installed above the loop. It checks whether the sag falls below the minimum value or touches the ground. Ultrasonic measurement is not affected by even very shiny plates and dirt such as oil mist or dust.

Distance Sensors

Distance sensors are suitable for the detection, differentiation and measurement of objects by means of ultrasound. Different operating modes, such as synchronous, multiplex or through beam mode, can be set via the display or centrally via IO-Link, and different output variants and designs enable a wide range of possible applications.
