Compact system for double shell and missing tab detection on the conversion press
Specially developed to minimize expensive downtime
- Easy to work with for minimal downtime
- Small sensor dimensions for easy mounting
- Quick calibration, no need to adjust detection tolerances
- Calibration input for quick start after maintenance stops
- Works with aluminium and steel ends/tabs — no adjustments needed
- No need to re-calibrate after a cable change
- Suitable for line speeds up to 1000 strokes per minute
NEW FEATURE error codes are now stored for 24 hours for easier tracking of production faults.
Easy to Install
For each lane, two sensors are installed at the infeed and two at the outfeed of the press, with two electronic cards fitted into the controller. Transmitter sensors are fitted above the conveyor belt and receivers below. Shells should pass approximately 5mm (0.2”) above the receiver sensors.
Both a global and a local re-calibration inputs are available. The local input starts calibration only on the selected sensor, while the global input works for the entire system. These inputs give the possibility of using the line control system or an external switch to decide when to initiate calibration.
The IS240 sensors have been specially engineered with short and narrow casing for easy fitting into the available space on a typical press (see illustration opposite). The control box with its easy to read signalling system is similarly compact for convenient mounting.
The IS240 Tab Verifier is a modular system allowing inspection on up to four lanes with one controller. For each shell, the system gives a good and/or bad output signal. Error checks are performed continuously and if any system fault is found, the warning output is activated. Plug-in modules on the controller allow operators to quickly re-route inputs while a fault is being diagnosed, which helps to keep unplanned downtime to a minimum.
