Tool detection

Further machining steps, such as the drilling of holes, are performed on the plasma arc cutting line. The tools are placed in a tool magazine and detected by a UC4 ultrasonic sensor. The sensor is very small and can be integrated in areas where space is limited; the detection principle is not sensitive to reflective surfaces.
