January 10, 2022 – Vision Components will host two webinars on 24 January, demonstrating the operation and integration of autonomous angle measurement in metal processing. Thanks to the integrated processor, the sensor directly outputs the workpiece angle in degrees.

The free-of-charge webinars are aimed in particular at manufacturers and distributors of press brakes and metal forming technology. Jan-Erik Schmitt, Vice President Sales, and Klaus Schneider, VC Chief Engineer for Angle Measurement, present the advantages of VC nano 3D-Z laser profilers, which do not require an external processing unit, can be connected directly to machine controls and enable real-time adjustment of the bending process. Following a live demonstration of the solution, Klaus Schneider will be available for individual questions and consultations.

The 3D sensors, optimized for sheet metal bending and fully calibrated, are easy to integrate in press brakes. The system is already integrated by default in controllers from CYBELEC, DELEM and STEP AUTOMATION and only needs to be activated. The sensor has a wide detection range and can cover dies from V6 to V200 from a fixed mounting position, providing a typical accuracy of +/- 0.1°.

Timings: 24 January 2023, 11:30 a.m. & 5:30 p.m. CET
Language: English
