Position monitoring of sonotrodes when welding plastics

When ultrasonic welding plastic parts, it is essential that the welding heads or sonotrodes be in the correct position. This is the only way to ensure that the necessary heat is produced in the seam area to fuse the plastic and create a permanent bond. The MPS-T position sensors can be used to reliably monitor the position of the sonotrodes.

  • Following product families can be used
    Position sensors for T-slot
    • 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
