Stack Measurement of Metal Tubes with Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors

In the steel industry, automated gripping, loading and unloading of metal tubes by handling robots requires the exact distance between the tube and the robot to be measured. For this purpose, a long-range laser distance sensor with wintec is installed directly on the robot gripper. Different tube materials such as aluminum, galvanized steel, copper and even black, glossy or corroded surfaces have no influence on the precise measurement result. After measuring the stack, the robot grips the top tube, turns it over and then starts another measurement.

Long-Range Laser Distance Sensors

Long-range laser distance sensors work according to the principle of transit time measurement, which means that they cover large working ranges, so that objects can be reliably detected even at great distances. The emitted light can be switched off for these sensors, which eliminates temperature drift.
