Sorting Unit
fully assembled
Order-№: 69511  
Price on request

The sorting unit examines and sorts cube halves. It consists of a testing station and a sorting track with three pneumatic cylinders and three chutes. The sorting unit can be attached to the conveyor belt mMS Functional Unit. On the conveyor belt, the workpieces are guided past the sorting unit, where they are tested for material characteristics and position (orientation). These tasks are accomplished using an optical sensor, an inductive sensor and an ultrasonic sensor.

After the workpieces have been checked and classified, the conveyor belt carries them on to the discharge cylinders. The examination and the resulting possible selection or sorting are defined by the control program and are not predetermined by the assembly.

The operating pressure is 4 bar. The operating voltage is 24 VDC.
