Conveyor speed measurement and presence monitoring on a rotary indexing table

To control the speed at the rotary indexing table, an SEK160 motor feedback system is mounted directly on the drive shaft of the torque motor, thereby eliminating the need for transmission elements such as timing belts or couplings. The SEK160 is equipped with the HIPERFACE® interface and thus compatible with all common drive systems. A W16 photoelectric proximity sensor detects the sheet metal stacks in the individual work stations and even reliably identifies glossy surfaces. The W2S-2 miniature photoelectric sensor installed on the robot gripper rounds off the application package.
