Inductive Couplers Ensure Precise Material Feed

Turck's NIC inductive coupler sets transfer data and power between mobile workpiece carriers and static work stations without contact

Workpiece carriers are used in the automobile industry to transport workpieces between the individual production steps. The carriers are loaded and unloaded with the support of robots. The identification of the individual workpieces, as well as the reliable detection of their loading spaces are indispensable to ensure the rapid and smooth feeding of workpieces to downstream processes. The machine control system must know which part is to be processed in the next step. Mobile workpiece carriers in constant movement present users here with additional challenges.
