Recording the Swivel Movement of a Core Shooter
Short cycle times are particularly important when manufacturing sand cores for metal casting using core shooters. The swivel movement of the core carrier, which is recorded by the contactless IO-Link encoder QR24-IOL from Turck, has a major influence on the clock rate of the machine. The rotary encoder detects the overall swivel movement and is therefore able to dynamically control this movement. IO-Link minimizes wiring, facilitates electrical planning, and enables errors to be diagnosed in a transparent manner.
- The QR24-IOL contactless IO-Link rotary encoder detects swivel movement and thereby improves the clock rate of machines
- Straightforward wiring
- Less prone to errors and quicker at detecting errors
