Miniature Inductive Sensor Accurately Detects Position of High-Speed Spindle

High-speed machining centers often feature automatic tool-changers that help maximize productivity. A Swiss drive-motor manufacturer uses sensor technology to detect the position of a machine’s main spindle before initiating the tool-change sequence. Contrinex miniature inductive sensors detect the position of a slotted centering-disc mounted on the motor shaft with exceptional repeatability and positional accuracy better…
