Roughly four sensing-related processes occur in a welding cell with regards to parts that are to be joined by MIG, TIG and resistance welding by specialized robotic /automated equipment: Nesting…usually, inductive proximity sensors with special Weld Field Resistance properties and … Continue reading
In a previous post we took a look at magnetic field sensors vs inductive proximity sensors for robot grippers. In this post I am going to dive a little deeper into magnetic field sensors and compare two technologies: reed switches, … Continue reading
Here’s a real-world application where the reliability of the sensors is directly related to the reliability of the process in producing quality results. Pictured below is a pneumatic actuator for a vacuum valve. Inside the actuator, a magnetic ring is installed around the moving … Continue reading
There are better alternatives to detect pneumatic cylinder end of stroke position than reed switches or proximity switches. By better, I mean they are faster and easier to implement into your control system. In addition, you can realize other benefits … Continue reading
