Production logistics get smart
Closing the circle - Sensor solutions in production logistics - even for the smallest spaces in production
Rotary magazine tables serve as intermediate storage for workpieces in cases where upstream and downstream assembly processes have different cycle times. The continuous rotation of the rotating plate allows the workpieces to be evenly distributed on the rotary magazine table. The inlet and outlet of the table are equipped with WFM fork sensors, which count the workpieces and thus determine the table's storage capacity. The highly visible receive indicator on the WFM enables constant process control. As an alternative option, a CQ35 capacitive proximity sensor mounted at the center of the rotary magazine table can also be used for this application. This sensor emits a signal when the table's storage capacity has been reached.
