Proximity Switches Offer Contact-Free Position Monitoring
Hasco’s proximity switches are suited for precise position monitoring during movement sequences and, at end points, make it possible to detect electrically conductive workpieces.
Hasco’s proximity switches Z1472/... and Z1476/... are suited for precise position monitoring during movement sequences and, at end points, make it possible to detect electrically conductive workpieces when they reach an electromagnetic alternating field. With heat resistance, the switches are ideal for high-temperature applications.
In a stainless-steel housing that can be flush-mounted, the inductive proximity switches are protected against environmental influences and are positioned so as to be shock and vibration-resistant. The wiring has short-circuit and reverse-polarity protection. With contact-free mode of operation, this gives the proximity switches a long service life. They permit wear-free process monitoring during production.
Successful production of plastic components associated with the extrusion, injection and compression molding greatly depends on the mold material selection.
Although PERC (Programmable Electric Rotating Cores System) is not a brand-new technology, it warrants a second look as a way for moldmakers to provide another value-added service to their customers.
When insulation is necessary to build a mold, the moldmaker must consider the insulation's properties and what effects these properties will have on mold performance.
