Monitoring part picking

The articulated arm robot in the rotary machine transports the workpieces to the processing stations arranged in a circle. The W2S-2 miniature photoelectric sensor monitors the part-picking process, from their transport to their safe delivery. Thanks to its ultra-small housing, the photoelectric sensor can be mounted directly on the robot's suction gripper in order to save space. Featuring a vibration-resistant housing and soft cable entry, this sensor is perfectly equipped for use in gripper arms and robot applications.
