Detection of double-sheets in metalworking
For double-sheet detection, sensors from the Full Inox family are used. Its inductive technology enables discrimination between one and two conductive metal sheets of a defined thickness, achieving sensitivity of 0.8–1.2 mm per sheet. This discrimination aids in the prevention of double feeds into blanking and forming processes which ultimately saves damage to tooling. The one-piece, stainless-steel construction of these sensors makes them the most durable on the market. They withstand the impacts that are a common hazard in double-sheet detection applications close to moving sheet metal, ensuring minimal down-time.
