Tube weld seam detectors & Double sheet detectors

Tube weld seam detection in pipe and tube benders producing structural automotive parts by means of bending and hydroforming e.g. exhaust manifolds, side members, roll bars, engine cradles, head rests. Roland applies eddy current and magnetic leaking flux sensor principles for detecting weld seams in tubes and coils and is therefore completely independent of optical surface colorations. Double sheet or double blank detection is Roland s specialty for typical press tending applications in blank destackers, destacking feeders, robot loaders, blank washers, blank lubricaters, magbelt conveyors and centering stations not only in automotive stamping plants but also in manufacturing cans, appliances and other sheet metal products. Steel, aluminum and stainless steel blanks are detected by single probe sensors mounted directly into vacuum suction cups or noncontact pass-thru dual head sensing systems. Roland is the innovative global leader in weld seam detection technology as well is double blank detection.

Optimizing a single probe, gap-tolerant, double sheet detector system
Detecting the presence of two sheets in a press feeding operation uses scientific principles, but the process is not an exact science. A typical press-feeding situation involves an air gap between the detector and the first sheet in the stack or an air gap between the top two sheets, and these air gaps reduce the detector's effectiveness. Understanding the capabilities of the detector and the limitations imposed by imperfect conditions can help stampers set up an effective double-sheet detector system.
