Height positioning in sheet metal storage

The material lift is used to move stacks of sheets from a transfer carriage or residual sheets from a vacuum nozzle to an interim shelf for storage. The BTF13 wire draw encoder signals the absolute height position of the material lift to the control. The bottom and top final positions of the material lift are monitored by inductive proximity sensors.
