Magnetic-Inductive Sensors Detect Weld Nuts

June 1, 2009

Magnetic-inductive sensorsTurck, Minneapolis, MN, has debuted magnetic-inductive sensors for detection of weld nuts. The sensors
Magnetic-Inductive sensors
use signal attenuation to detect ferromagnetic components such as nuts, bushings and spacer sleeves, and ensure that these components are present prior to robotic welding without the need for additional software or electronics. The sensors can be easily integrated into existing production lines, replacing traditional location bolts as well as optical systems that can malfunction due to residue and changing lighting conditions.
