Inline metal bending control with autonomous laser profiler

The VC nano3D-Z laser triangulation sensor operates autonomously, without an external computing unit, and is already fully calibrated for angle measurement. It enables dynamic closed-loop contact pressure adjustment in press brakes and thereby increases both throughput and efficiency. The measurement resolution is better than +/- 0.05°. The easy-to-mount sensor connects to any controller/PLC and directly outputs the bending angle in degrees. The sensor is already integrated into DELEM and – new – CYBELEC controllers. Also new are a mounting kit and other accessories for easy commissioning. The rugged IP67-grade laser profiler is suitable for die widths from V6 to V200 and heights from 55 mm to 150 mm. Versions for larger dies are also available on request. The sensor delivers robust results even with reflective or brushed surfaces as well as perforated sheet metal.

The German manufacturer Vision Components has developed it specifically as an OEM product and, in addition to the turnkey complete solution, also offers a modular kit for individual further development. The integrated embedded vision system and high-power blue laser (class 2) are perfectly matched. Press brake manufacturers receive proven, industrial-grade components with assured long-term availability.
