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.
