Detects Broken Drills in Environments with Spattered Aluminum Chips
Case Number 267
last update: November 6, 2009
This application uses a Proximity Sensor with a Built-in Amplifier with resistance to aluminum chips.
If you mount this Sensor facing upward, it can detect presence of drills without being affected by aluminum chips.
Conventional sensors often failed with aluminum chips, which caused the facilities to stop.
Benefit / Efficiency
A new pulse response method prevents failure when aluminum chips attach to the sensing face of the sensor.
Aluminum and Iron Both Detectable from Long Distances
