Cable twisting at Komax: Automatic quality control with distance sensors

Cable twister Komax

,In semiautomatic cable twisters of the Komax Wire Company several wires were twisted into a more compact strand. Twisting has the benefit of preventing the transmission of interference pulses into the wires, e.g. in the case of airbag cables or bus systems. The DL50 Hi distance sensor makes sure that the correct cable lengths are used and that the length of the twisted wire can be monitored continuously. Continue reading

OD Mini: New short range distance sensor (displacement) for micrometer precise measurement


The OD Mini is the ideal sensor solution when the issues that matter apart from precise measuring of small distances or detecting position changes in the µm range include compact construction size, minimal weight, special user-friendliness, and a high level of ruggedness. In three measurement ranges between 10 and 150 mm, the sensor allows extremely accurate and yet fast measurement of distances or detection of workpiece or manufacturing tolerances. Continue reading
