Detects Discharge of Chips

Case Number 16

last update: April 13, 2015

This application uses a Fiber Sensor with a homogenous beam. 

A homogenous area beam provides stable detection of chips that can drop in various positions.


Conventional area-beam fiber sensors received amount of lights that varied with the sensing position. Detecting workpieces depended upon their passing position. Some were detected, but others were not. Also, laser sensors presented problems from the view point of safety.

Benefit / Efficiency

This Sensor uses an optical component that generates a homogenous light beam with a safe LED. It enables stable detection within the detection area even when the passing position of chips changes.
