Detection of dancer position

A dancer serves to compensate for irregularities when unwinding the packaging film and to apply a constant sheet tension for the infeed process. To do this, the dancer position is regulated to its center position. The attached MPA position sensor accurately detects any deviations from this position. The film then runs precisely, with the correct tension, and defects such as those that can arise when sealing flow packs do not occur.

  • Following product families can be used
    • Position sensor for direct mounting in T-slots on pneumatic cylinders
    • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 32 mm to 256 mm
    • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
    • Mounting on other cylinder types (e.g., round body cylinders) is possible with adapters
    • Position sensor for use on pneumatic cylinders
    • Sensor variants with measuring ranges of 107 mm to 1,007 mm
    • Analog outputs (for current or voltage), switching output, and IO-Link
    • Mounting with adapters on a multitude of cylinder types (tie-rod cylinders, round body cylinders, profile cylinders)
