Checking presence in the insertion grippers and injection molding tool

Neither the robot's gripper hand nor the injection molding tool have very much space to accommodate sensors. For this reason, the WLL180T fiber-optic sensor for the detection of inserts is excellently equipped for placement in both the gripper hand and the injection molding tool. The highly temperature-resistant LL3 fiber is the perfect choice for use in injection molding tools.
