Edge Detection and positioning in web guide applications
Flow pack machines and wrapping machines use packaging material on film rolls. The film has to be guided in the correct position into the packaging machine. When the film is too far to the left or right the packaging is of bad quality and the packaging design could be destroyed which leads to wasted products.
The AT20 Line Array Sensors form SICK are the only line array sensors available that have diffuse mode, making them ideal for harsh environments where dirt and dust can interfere with retro-reflective sensors. These sensors are designed for edge detection/positioning in web guide applications.
Reduces downtime. The array sensor offered in diffuse mode, making it ideal for environments where dirt and dust can interfere with other types of solutions that require a reflector.
