Detecting parts in the gripper and the injection molding tool

There is very limited room available for sensors in the robot gripper and the injection molding tool. For this reason, the W2 Flat miniature photoelectric sensor is the ideal choice for detecting inserts and finished parts so that they can then be placed in the gripper. The WLL180T fiber-optic sensor, featuring high temperature-resistant LL3 fibers, is perfect for use in injection molding tools.
