Flange Detection System utilizes laser sensor technology.

October 16, 2012

Operating with straight or tapered flange spools, PLC-controlled FA-II eliminates need to adjust reversal stops on Uhing traverse. Laser sensor mounted to traverse continually references distance from spool core to highest point that wire or other material will be spooled. When sensor detects spool flange, reading is not within acceptable variance and signal is sent to pneumatic cylinder which reverses traverse. System accepts materials with round cross-sections and diameters from .004–.079 in. Read More
