Sensing of workpiece thickness

For wide belt sanders

Device at the infeed of the machine, which measures the thickness of the workpiece. Depending on the degree of automation the machine is automatically set up (raising or lowering the table or the sanding unit).

  • Technical implementation
  • * Set the machine to maximum working height, put the workpiece on the machine table to start measuring process, machine table or sanding unit adjusts automatically, start feed, workpiece will be sanded
  • The tracing is done mechanically by a limit switch. This may be adjusted higher or lower depending on the desired depth of cut.
  • Other methods of measurement: contactless via electrical or optical sensors
  • Alternative methods of measurement
  • Caliper gauge (manual, reading / adjusting errors not excluded)
  • Wireless measuring clamp, Bütfering, DMC, HOMAG
