Double Sheet Detection is an important part of quality control to prevent two or more sheets of metal from entering metal processing machines at one time. Failure to detect double sheets of metal or double blanks can damage tools and dies, resulting in costly repairs and downtime.Our Double Sheet Detection Systems are created by combining a controller and single or dual probes, depending on the application. We also offer accessories, such as cables and brackets to complete the application needs.
SINGLE PROBE DOUBLE SHEET DETECTION
Single Probe Double Sheet Detection uses one probe and a controller to measure the thickness of the metal or the presence of two or more sheets of metal and is generally used when metal is detected from one side only. Because there is only one probe, the probe must come in contact with the metal.
DUAL PROBE DOUBLE SHEET DETECTION
Dual Probe DoubleSheet Detection uses two probes and a controller to measure the thickness of the metal or the presence of two or more sheets of metal. The metal sheet passes between both probes, creating a blockage of signal. The amount of signal reaching the receiver is inversely proportional to the metal thickness. Because there are two probes, with the metal passing between, the probes do not come in contact with the metal, a valuable piece of information for customers looking for a non-contact method.
Many of our Double Sheet Detectors also perform as metal thickness detectors for applications where the detection of variations in metal thickness are important. Metal Thickness Detection is a quality control method, used to prevent metals with the wrong thickness levels from being processed.
A Prime Controls Part Detector is a unique detector that can solve tough problems where traditional proximity sensors might not be well suited. Whether there is a need to detect ferrous metal through any metal in the foreground and ultimately detecting the presence of some part, or whether there is a need to detect the accurate position of some metal piece, Prime Controls has a solution to ensure the quality control of your metal processing application
Double End & Missing Tab Detection
Prime is known in the can making industry for its Double End and Missing Tab Detectors. The detector is used on High Speed Easy Open End Conversion Presses; however, its dual functionality for detecting a double metal sheet and a missing part at the same time opens the door for other applications in other industries.
A complete Double End and Missing Tab Detection system is formed by combining a controller and dual probes, along with the necessary accessories, such as cables and brackets to meet the needs of the application.
