How Inductive Sensors Ensure Workpiece Carriers Stay In Position

Inductive sensors check the presence and position of workpiece carriers. In an automotive assembly line, for instance, these sensors prove to be invaluable to the lift and transfer process.

When cylinder heads get transferred to another line for mounting on an auto engine, the workpiece gets lifted from one carrier to another– inductive sensors fitted on the roller conveyor do the job of checking the position of the workpiece carrier, making sure everything’s in order.

Sensors are used to detect the arrival of a workpiece carrier. When it arrives, the sensor tells the conveyor to stop. A robot then lifts and transfers the workpiece to an adjacent line. The sensor then figures out that the cylinder head has been successfully removed from the workpiece carrier, so it can tell the conveyor to start up again and return the empty carrier to the workpiece loading station. Without inductive sensors, the elaborate process of factory work would be a lot slower and less efficient.
