  • Significant Cost Reduction in Detecting Double Sheet Metal Feeding
    A client used "Contact type displacement sensor" to detect double sheet metal feeding, but the cost for a sensor with a display unit was a financial burden. Metrol's "Precision Positioning Switch" is suited for positioning in automated lines and in-lines. By eliminating the display unit
  • Case Studies [Precision Positioning Switches]: Significant Cost Reduction in Detecting Double Sheet Metal Feeding
    "Contact displacement sensor" was used to detect double sheet metal feeding, however, the sensor and a display unit were expensive. Significant cost reduction can be realized without lowering the accuracy just by replacing it with Metrol "Positioning Switch" ...
  • Medical Device Link .
    Chassis Prototype Reduces Downstream Manufacturing Costs A manufacturer of precision enclosures developed a prototype for the sheet-metal chassis of an ultrasound machine that improved efficiency and reduced downstream manufacturing costs. Design innovations resulting from the prototype process
  • Medical Device Link .
    A laser-welded medical instrument tray is usually built on a sheet-metal platform that can be removed from its case. Typical materials include titanium, stainless steel, or aluminum. A series of formed metal brackets of the same material reside on the platform. The brackets hold the instruments
  • Self-Piercing Nuts
    These nuts are internally threaded, precision, work-hardened steel with external undercuts on two sides. Used in sheet-metal panels and installed by automatic machinery, they can be attached in open or blind locations. Self-piercing nuts have high resistance to torque, vibration, tension, and shear
  • Application Newsletter - Laser Marking Glass with a Co2 Laser, the SBM 1200M
    1200M is ideal for glass applications. The SBM 1200M features: Sealed CO2 laser from 50 to 500 watt. Ease of installation allows for quick startup and material processingHandles continuous roll and standard sheet size stock. Ideal for small machine shops and sheet metal fabricators. Extra-large
  • Joining Plastic
    , rivets, pins, sheet-metal nuts) are the most common joining method. They require a plastic that can withstand the strain of fastener insertion and subsequent high stress around the fastener. Conventional machine screws are rarely used except with extremely strong plastic. There are a number
  • Load Cell Application - Assembly line / Automation
    Below is a common assembly line lineup. It is a conveyor based assembly line where a piece of sheet metal is traveling through several operations. The first step is the stamping / punching station in which the specified load is being monitored. When the tool gets dull, the load gets out of its
