From molding car parts to packaging food products, hydraulic presses are used to accomplish difficult tasks in a variety of industries. In recent years, their immense strength has even earned them a bit of viral video fame on YouTube. These tools are as powerful as they are versatile, but without the right sensing equipment they can be slow and inefficient to operate manually.
If you’re interested in effectively automating the hydraulic presses in your operation, we recommend the rugged, reliable C44 line of inductive sensors from Contrinex. Locon Sensor Systems, Inc. has been a proud authorized distributor of Contrinex products for decades. The C44 series can not only make your operation faster and more efficient, but also prevent damage to expensive equipment and sensitive components.
C44 inductive sensors can be used to continually monitor the presence and position of press tools, thereby preventing presses from engaging when a tool is missing or out of place. Once both tool halves are properly positioned, the inductive sensor array can trigger the press to automatically engage and complete the process. This, in turn, can speed up your setup time, reduce demands on your workforce and prevent damage to your press and its tools. Thanks to their rotating heads, these sensors can also be used to accommodate 5 different sensing angles.
C44 inductive sensors from Contrinex are highly accurate, easy to install and remarkably reliable. Want to learn more about these or any of the other sensing solutions we offer at Locon? Contact us online or give us a call at our toll-free number to speak with a representative today.
