Tool designed for the industrial environment to be installed directly on the impact plate. The detector is a small timed device equipped with a sensor that is particularly sensitive to the sounds generated by metal strikes. The very resistant box has a led on the front that lights up when the impact is detected.
It has a minimal footprint and can be easily installed on all types of systems, without the need to modify anything on the existing system. When the blow is detected, a neutral contact is closed which is available for any machinery management.
The standard kit includes the box and a probe with 3 meters of armored sheath, but there are different sizes, as well as particular lengths on request.
In the aluminum extrusion sector, it is used for detecting the fall of the billet bottom once it has been cut by the shear.
When the shear detaches the butt end from the die and it arrives on the plate, the impact between the metals produces a sound that activates a signal in the RCF (Butt end Fall Detector).
The generated signal can be used for different purposes: to stop the closure of the container, or to detect the actual fall of the piece of billet discarded by the LOGS shear (HOT SHEAR).
