Application Spotlight

Balluff Application Spotlight



Even skilled and experienced operators can sometimes overlook a missing part. Using sensors to verify parts presence can add significant productivity and cost improvements in both automatic and semiautomatic operations. This is a key function in error proofing. In this example, the operator deploys swing clamps in a semiautomatic application to immobilize the parts to be joined. Sensors validate that the components are present and clamped properly. In an error proofing situation, sensors can be wired in an "AND" mode. Thus, if one screw is missing, a signal to weld will not be triggered, automatically preventing rework or a bad part ending up in a customer's hands.
