Thread quantity detection when sewing Airbags

A pneumatic cylinder with an MPS-T position sensor detects how much thread is still on the spool when sewing airbags. The quantity of thread on the spool decreases during the sewing process and the movement of the cylinder piston pressing against the spool adjusts accordingly.

  • 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
