Detection of cold metal plates during automated handling

Damage-free, automated handling of metal plates, sheets and strips is a common, yet important task in metal producing and handling plants. The reliability of this operation affects both production and safety aspects. Regardless of the objects’ surface color, reliable detection of the goods is the success factor. Robust, contactless ultrasonic sensors ideally offer a simple solution in harsh environments for reliable object detection during automated handling.
